In a recent tweet, President Donald Trump shared his opinion stating that President-elect Joe Biden is not in charge, a statement which raised many eyebrows. Despite the confusion it caused, former Trump attorney Sidney Powell provided clarity, claiming that before the election, Trump was not in charge either.
The president claimed that Biden was not in control, although the nation would soon be under his rule. The President-elect argued back, affirming that he is in control of the transition of power and the current goals he has. After the subsequent controversy that arose, Powell offered her perspective via social media.
Powell defended Trump’s statement by claiming that while some of the outcomes have been very near misses for him, the president was never in control of his own campaign. Powell alleged that this was due to the bad advice of former campaign staffers, which she blames for Trump’s loss.
Powell refers to Trump’s campaign as a great “ship with no leader”, and expresses her belief that Trump’s policies and proposals to the citizens of the United States were misunderstood by many and overlooked.
Some supporters have interpreted this statement from Powell to mean that an election without a consistent leader couldn’t win the day. It appears that while Trump is no longer the leader of the United States, his support base remains loyal and loyalists interpret Powell’s words as opinions strongly supporting Trump’s point of view.
Despite the flurry of social media activity centered around Trump, Powell, and their allegations, one thing remains clear: the transfer of power from one leadership to another will be inevitable and President-Elect Joe Biden is indeed in charge.
