A great disapointment.

Reader comment on item: Trump's Need to Concede

Submitted by Alex B (United States), Nov 11, 2020 at 11:05

Dr Pipes, I usually agree with your ideas but here you wrote things that are simply illogical. At this point of time the outcome of the elections is questionable, to put it mildly. Your argumentation is based on the assertion that Trump lost. But in light of all the mounting evidence to the contrary Trump's legal battle is way within legit. We must allow the the legal due process to come to its conclusion and then, only then, to examine Trump's behavior as well as the behavior of his opponents. My fear is that with all the cacophony of the MSM about how Trump "lost" and how stubborn he is etc the ppl on the left and on the fay left are not ready to accept any judgment which interferes their Trumpophobic approach. Articles like this one only amplify the danger of violent reactions.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Read my article again: "President Trump is absolutely entitled to pursue every legal avenue – including recounts and lawsuits – to assure his full rights."
