Voter suppression has been a controversial subject in this election. But one viral video has given the internet hope…
Every single day seems to be a struggle to get through.
Yeah, it’s getting pretty strange out here.
More than 12 million of them have already cast their vote for their next president according to some recent data released by US Elections Project.
The responsibility of picking the correct leader is a tough one and with passionate opinions on both candidates, it’s looking likely that this will be one tough battle.
Let’s just hope both men make it to November 3rd.
It was confirmed that the President and the First Lady, Melania Trump, had been diagnosed with the virus that has already killed over 208,000 Americans.
Though, at this time, he didn’t give any further details regarding his and Melania’s symptoms.
And floods of well-wishes for him and the First lady began pouring in from all around the world.
But many people were, quite rightfully, feeling concerned about Trump’s chances of surviving the deadly virus.
Seventy-four-year-old President Trump is actually in the high-risk category.
Mark Meadows, the White House Chief of Staff, spoke at a live press conference today where he stated that he is “optimistic the President will have a very quick and speedy recovery.”
And said that the President was “energetic” and in “good spirits”, adding that he was “staying committed to working very hard on behalf of the American people”
Apparently, the first question Trump asked him after his diagnosis was “how’s the economy doing?”
Because, shortly after his statement, it was reported that the president had been admitted to the hospital.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”
Now, telling a country to not be afraid of a virus that has killed 200,000 Americans is an extremely reckless thing to say…
And, of course, people were not happy with his choice of announcement.
What does this mean for his presidential campaign?
With millions of Americans having their say in both ballots cast in-person and absentee or mail-in ballots returned to local elections offices.
With 7 days to go, there is still a lot of time for other Americans to head down to their local polling station and vote.
In Vermont, a total of 95,885 have voted so far, and this already counts for 30% of the overall turnout back in 2016, when Donald Trump took on Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
And if we’re talking about record-breaking statistics, then Georgia is in the lead with 128,590 ballots cast on the first day of early voting – a whopping 40% increase from rates in 2016.
In Georgia, Kentucky, and Texas, Americans experienced long lines and exhausting waiting times as the offices did not expect the sudden rush.
They said high voter enthusiasm may be a cause.
Let’s just hope every single other American that is eligible to vote, also has their say this November.
