End Game

  1. We will not have an election day, we will have an election season.
  2. Our antiquated election process will allow Trump to pursue multiple legal challenges to the results of the popular vote.
  3. As commander-in-chief, Trump will have government resources Biden won’t, and will use them.
  4. Trump’s allegations of electoral fraud will find a large, sympathetic audience, and some of that audience will resort to intimidation and violence.
  5. The courts alone will not solve the problem.
  6. Even if Trump leaves, his departing administration will sabotage the incoming one.
