Will He Go?:
Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020
Comedian Bill Maher, on his show Real Time with Bill Maher has raised concerns about whether or not Trump will leave office if he looses the election on Nov. 3, 2020 and he has asked the question of many of the political guests on the show - "what will you do if Trump won't leave if he loses reelection?" Most guests dismiss the question and go on to something else but this is a serious question for a man who received Russian help winning his first term, falsely claimed that 3 million illegal alien fraudulent votes accounted for his loss of the popular vote, was impeached for trying to pressure the Ukraine into investigating his opponent for reelection in 2020, has solicited help for winning his second term from various foreign governments, cries voter fraud and fake news whenever things do not go his way and has lied to the public over 20,000 times since taking office. This raises the question "Will he Go." Law professor and author Lawrence Douglas tackles this issue head on in Will He Go?: Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020. Douglas clearly lays out how our system works and detail the importance of acceptance of democratic norms. He discusses how Trump's current barrage of lies is setting us up for for an election nightmare and puts his finger on several soft spots in our electoral system. Douglas dissects Trump, his behavior and personality and details why the confluence of Trump and his rejection of democratic norms presents a dire threat and presents three scenarios - all highly probably - where Trump's intransigence and his refusal to accept defeat threaten our democracy. This book is well written and is a fast easy read. It is also one of the most important books you will read between now the the November 3, 2020 election.
