Re: Amer­i­can pol­i­tics slips off the rails, Rex Mur­phy, Sept. 29

Rex Mur­phy’s side note on whether U. S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will con­cede if he loses the elec­tion and his al­le­ga­tion of Demo­cratic pro­jec­tion on the is­sue in­di­cates he needs to be re­minded of a few things. Firstly, Trump started his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer ques­tion­ing the le­git­i­macy of an elected of­fice-holder. Se­condly, Hil­lary Clin­ton con­ceded the day after the elec­tion in 2016 de­spite a pop­u­lar vote vic­tory and very nar­row mar­gins in three key states. There­after Trump was the undis­puted pres­i­dent- elect and he was in­au­gu­rated on sched­ule. That’s the stan­dard Trump should be held to. He and the Repub­li­cans may then make Joe Bi­den’s life as dif­fi­cult as they like (and they un­doubt­edly will). Thirdly, as far as con­cerns about whether he will leave be­ing fan­tas­ti­cal, Rex needs to lis­ten to what Trump says.
