A significant CNN headline seems to synthetize the low level of ethics characterizing the US electoral process.

Journalist Frida Ghitis was responsible of such headline:

TRUMP’S DEPRAVED PLAN TO TRY TO WIN REELECTION

Media outlets note that Donald Trump believes most of US citizens do not give cause for the use of violence in the streets.

However, it seems the President is prone to encourage it.

His former aide Kellyanne Conway confirmed to far-righted Fox News:

“The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who's best on public safety and law and order.”

Lara Trump, Trump’s daughter-in-law and campaign adviser, commented on Fox that violence is pushing voters to go with Trump.

The Democrat candidate, Joe Biden criticized such statements and promised “to work for a safe America, safe from Covid-19, safe from crime, looting, and racially motivated violence.”

CNN highlighted that it was a very much needed response as Trump is trying to blame Democrats for the violence while he is fueling chaos.

And added that Wisconsin governor, Tony Evers, begged the President to stay away as he knows Trump’s presence would be counterproductive.

Observers believe Trump’s image of self-confidence is absolutely false, especially when he is not good at law and order.

Trump, who swore to stop “America’s bloodshed” in his administration, has fueled violence and division within the society.

This is Trump’s America. He is the master of violence.

The President wants US citizens to blame Democrat governors and mayors of turning peaceful protests into battlefields.

In his despair to win reelection and amid the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression, and the worst public health catastrophe in the last 100 years, and multiple riots against racism, Trump is flirting with disaster.
