An American expert believes that the chances of trump's re-election grow
The chances of US President Donald trump to get re-elected for a second term in November of this year increased due to sweeping the country protests and riots, says assistant Professor, Department of political science and African American studies, Purdue University Nadia brown.
For more than a week in the US, the ongoing mass protests and riots, which began after the death of the African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis at the hands of police. Trump advocates for strong action to restore order and urged state governors to use the military to agree that not all of them.
"I think he has a good chance to win. If you'd asked me about it before the death of George Floyd, I'd give him less likely given how he reacted to (pandemic) COVID-19," said brown in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Now, she said, against the backdrop of unrest in a growing number of those who share the approach of trump, while previously they "were not delighted with him". The same, I'm sure brown is promoted and attacks on the "left" wing of the Democratic party.
In her opinion, the problem of racism and police violence will be in the upcoming elections one of the fundamental.
Brown recalled that "mathematically" the presidential candidate of the Democrats, which should be Joe Biden, can't win elections without the support of voters-African Americans. "Biden needs to speak out and strongly condemn these unlawful killings (African-Americans by police – ed.)", - the expert believes.
In addition, she said, Biden should emphasize your relationship with Barack Obama, and to nominate for Vice-President of the African-American.
Speaking about the reasons of such mass protests, the expert noted that in recent months the African-American community is experiencing serious economic problems that caused the pandemic coronavirus, and in the end, "the poor have become poorer". But the crux of the conflict lie the problems the colored people of the United States, is a "systematic inequality" and lack of "fairness and transparency" in relation to it by the authorities.
"African Americans want equal participation in American society... All they want to be treated with the same (as with white). We still believe in the democratic values that founded this country," said brown, who is herself African-American community.
However, she said that racism was initially present during the formation of the United States, bearing in mind that African-Americans were slaves and had no political rights.
"I think that we will see more violent clashes with law enforcement and the national guard before the situation will improve," says brown.
The colored population of the United States, which is no more than 20% of the population that traditionally supports Democrats. However, there are those who vote Republican and trump. That is why a big scandal in may caused a careless statement Biden to address African Americans that "if you don't vote for me, you are black." For it he had to apologize later.
Characteristically, on Tuesday against the backdrop of unrest Advisor to the President of the United States, Kellyann Conway acknowledged that there is "institutional racism" and lack of equality of all people.
