US political problems go beyond Donald Trump, analyzes Oliver Stoenkel | the topic

Donald Trump has prospects of returning to power in 2025, despite a parliamentary investigation that could hold him responsible for the January 6, 2021 Capitol invasion.

In an effort to be re-elected, the former Republican president did not accept the results of the ballot, discrediting the electoral system and inciting an invasion of Washington. Last week, the testimony of the White House counsel Cassidy Hutchinson provided evidence that Trump was willing to lead the rebellion.

Now, Democratic successor Joe Biden has the worst approval from the administration – at home at 40% – and has experienced the highest inflation in the past 40 years.

In a highly polarized scenario, the US President finds it difficult to implement his proposals. This is what analyst Oliver Stinkel explains, stressing that political problems in the United States go beyond Donald Trump

“It is important to remember that even if Trump is indicted – which is possible in the coming months – he is a reflection of an American political shift. Even if he is not a candidate – it could be, say, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is also Trump,” Stoenkel said in Episode #741 of the topic podcast.

“This dynamic of not recognizing the legitimacy of the Biden administration, and deepening the polarization further, this tendency is here to stay until the political problems of the United States of America go beyond Donald Trump.”

In a conversation with Renata Lo Pretty, journalist and professor of international relations at FGV São Paulo highlighted the victory of Trump-backed candidates in the primaries that determine the candidates in the parliamentary elections in November.

Oliver Stuenkel also describes how the Supreme Court makes successive decisions that disrupt the current administration, and says that in this scenario the American far-right leader could perpetuate his influence in the country.

Oliver concludes, “The state of American democracy today is certainly worse than it was on January 6, 2021.”
