As the 2020 Presidential election continues to unravel in the weeks following the historic day, the words of the outgoing president, Donald Trump, and the lawyer for his campaign, Sidney Powell, are causing a stir among the American populace. In recent days, President Trump has said that Joe Biden is not in charge of the United States, prompting a response from Powell, who said that President Trump was not in charge either. At a rally in Georgia earlier this week, the President declared, “Biden is not in charge, the radical left is in charge.” This declaration comes after Biden has been receiving his intelligence briefings since his win, indicating that he is actively preparing for his term as president. The remarks triggered Powell to respond, “The same could be said for President Donald Trump, who was never in charge of the election process or the election legally.” The statement from Powell came in response to a recent court filing by the Trump campaign which argued that Trump “never had full control over the elections.” In response to the recent back-and-forth between President Trump and Powell, many have expressed confusion over why the Trump campaign would make claims about the president’s lack of control over the election process. The confusion is heightened further after having seen a string of legal challenges made by the Trump campaign, many of which were based on alleged voter fraud, with claims that the election was “stolen.” The Trump campaign has argued that any discrepancies in the election were the fault of the state and local authorities, with the president and his team denying any involvement in the management of the election process. The disconnect between the Trump campaign’s claims and Powell’s more recent statement have caused many to question whether or not the Trump team’s accusations of voter fraud are just a case of sour grapes. As the dust continues to settle after a chaotic election season, it remains to be seen whether the Trump team’s claims of voter fraud will be given any more serious consideration.
