Opinion: Biden's mistake about Trump

November 21, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Frida Ghitis writes that President-elect Joe Biden is making a big mistake letting President Donald Trump continue to spread false and dangerous claims on the election results.

The President-elect is right in believing that Trump's efforts to overturn the people's will in the election will fail.

But Biden is incorrect if he thinks Trump's legal assault on his election and on American democracy is the principal problem the outgoing President poses.

The libel, the calumnies, the discrediting of Biden's legitimacy and of American democracy will persist, unless Biden tackles them head on now and prevents Trump from crippling his presidency before it begins.

A Reuters poll found 52% of Republicans said Trump won, compared to just 29% who said Biden did.

The head of OANN, one of Trump's favorite news and conspiracy organizations, tweeted, "Why is Biden still trying to act like he's going to be president when he knows the Dem cheating has been uncovered. "

Today, Biden holds the second biggest megaphone in the country (Trump, as President, still commands the most powerful one, and he knows well the power of constant repetition of lies).

Biden, with his calm demeanor, should reassure the American public that the election was clean, highlighting key facts that most people are not aware of, which show Trump is simply lying when he says, over and over again, that he won.

Trump is hurting America and its democracy -- and he is undercutting the Biden presidency.
