This American presidential election offers a suspense worthy of Hitchcock. We predicted it, we feared it… Here we are! While the votes of American voters are still being counted, candidate Trump declared himself the winner of the presidential election the day after November 3. And as promised, he is threatening to go to the Supreme Court to denounce electoral fraud if his victory is not recognized.
As the hours go by, Democratic candidate Joe Biden has more electors than his rival. But it’s a fact that the Democratic wave, as predicted by polls, has not happened. Trumptism is now deeply rooted in the American political landscape.
The whole country (and the world with it!) is in a state of unbearable expectation, uncertainty and, worse, the most extreme division that makes us fear the worst.
