Focus: Politics – Trump and Vaccines

Donald Trump is not opposed to vaccines against Covid 19. He even insisted his administration to achieve them in record time, but that truth does not deny another: almost all “deniers” are Trumpists. Why are they opposed to people getting vaccinated? It is an unfathomable mystery. Is it because there is an anti-scientific attitude in Trumpism? It is probable. Almost all Trumpistas deny climate change (and almost all Trumpistas who admit it say that nothing that is done can prevent it). Maybe because there is a wrong concept of individualism? Well yes: I have no idea how you come to the conclusion that owning an AK 47 makes bipeds closer to individualism, but most Trumpists invoke the Second Amendment.

I believe in the freedom for all adults to make their cape into a robe, but as long as they do not compromise other human beings in their decision. Same-sex marriage, or the right to use one’s own body – pregnancies, abortions, prostitution, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and other stupid things – seems admissible to me, but not getting vaccinated can be lethal, among other things. others, for older adults. Society, through the State, has every right to make the vaccination compulsory. In the same way that practically no one in their right mind objects to putting limits on the speed at which cars move on the roads, it should be inescapable to be inoculated against Covid 19.

CNN commissioned a poll of Trump’s leadership of Republicans and found that a majority prefer him as a candidate in 2022. 51% want him on the ballot versus 49% who want a less vulnerable face. I suspect that the communication company would have preferred another less positive response for the former president, but the fact that he publishes his finding says a lot about his commitment to the truth. (Incidentally, since in US journalism it is important to disclose all the information, I work for CNN in Spanish).

I don’t think Donald Trump is the Republican candidate. He will be 78 or 79 when it comes time to rule. How old is Joe Biden today. At 75 years old, as Mexicans say, the “old man” is given. Three years ago, from that moment, everything happened to me. Not in vain, the Catholic bishops resign their positions at the age of 75 by means of a letter addressed to the Holy Father. And the cardinals stop electing the pope at 80. I do not believe that in 2022 Biden will be the candidate of the Democrats either. It will encourage a new candidate for the primaries to come forward. Maybe it’s Kamala Harris. Maybe someone different, like Senator Amy Klobuchar. Or maybe it’s Gavin Newsom, Governor of California and Commander of the National Guard, who just won a recall referendum against stale Trumpism. Almost double the Republican vote. California is not only the most populous state in the nation, the country is becoming more and more like that state.

After the next elections to elect the entire Chamber and a third of the Senate, the great and true dispute will begin. By that date, the accusation against Trump for tax evasion will be ready and – what is more serious – for trying to carry out a coup on January 6, 2021, as stated by Gina Haspel, Director of the CIA at that time. turbulent, as if the United States were a banana republic. Fortunately, Mike Pence, the vice president, former governor of Indiana, refused the barbarity that Donald Trump irresponsibly asked of him, and that would have precipitated the country into a civil war. Pence certified what had happened: there was no fraud. Joe Biden won the electoral vote (306 by 232). In addition, he gained a seven million vote advantage in the race. As a journalist, I have met countless people who, due to laziness, have not exercised their right to vote, but I have never come across one of those millions of foreigners who vote for the Democrats without having the right to do so, as Trump and Trump often accuse. the trumpistas. I insist on the word: never.
