With all these not-so-encouraging reports coming from the defeated President’s desk, you might ask or be wondering, what will happen if Donald Trump refuses to concede defeat and vacate the American Oval office?
Well, this is not the first time that an incident of this nature is occurring in America. In the year 1960, there were pockets of electoral misconduct in the presidential elections which was contested between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. The election saw the success of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon conceding to defeat. Similar thing happened during the time of Al Gore and George W. Bush in the year 2000. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
With December 8th being the deadline for resolving all electoral disputes, recounts and court issues, the recent happening calls for worry for America and Americans.
If these issues continue linger after the above date, the whole process might become relatively complicated.
In that case, the United States congress would be saddled with the responsibility of determining the winner. The American house of representative will have to decide who to take up the President position while the house of Senate will decide who to seat as Vice President of the Country. They would need a majority vote of 26 and 51 votes respectively. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
If after the above, the Vice President was elected into office but the President was not elected because he could not attain the supposed 26 majority votes, then the VP would be take charge but if the above majority votes could not be attained in the house of representative and the Senate for both posts, then the Speaker of the House of Representatives will seat as Acting President till the issues are resolved. The sitting Speaker of the American House is Nancy Pelosi. View pictures in App save up to 80% data. [Nancy Pelosi]
