October 17, 2020.- Media mogul Rupert Murdoch believes that the US president will lose the elections due to his mismanagement in the face of COVID-19.
As reported on Thursday by the US newspaper The Daily Beast, the founder of the media empire News Corp said that Donald Trump would see his re-election frustrated, in particular, with a wide margin over the Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden.
Murdoch insisted that the inability of the White House tenant to manage the new coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, will end up taking its toll in the November 3 elections. “After all, it seems like people are ready for ‘Sleepy’ Joe,” he stressed.
Poll gives Biden 17 points ahead of Trump in election
Sources confirm that, despite the fact that Trump regularly uses the local channel Fox News to launch slogans and criticisms, in recent weeks, he has been dissatisfied with the polls of said chain, as they put him at a disadvantage in some key states.
At this juncture, the Republican Party has sounded the alarms among its supporters, as national polls position Biden, with a significant advantage over Trump.
Even US political scientists fear that the president may openly question the legitimacy of the election results or refuse to hand over office to his Democratic rival.
According to a report published in June by the American daily Politico, some people close to Trump have testified that he had acknowledged the rapid loss of support from his people.
