Probable Scenario for the Upcoming Presidential Elections.

I'm afraid that we are heading into a probable constitutional crisis if Joe Biden defeats Donald Trump in the upcoming Presidential elections, on November 2020. I believe that Trump would declare the elections null and void because he will assert that he was cheated out of his second term. He will state, in no uncertain terms, that he will not leave the White House come January 2021.

President Trump exhibits the traits of a Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD.”) In his mind, the only reason he would have lost his bid for re-election is because the Democrats would have committed fraud. Therefore, he would use the White House as his bunker. In my opinion, President Trump would call on his supporters to come and help him in his hour of need.

Hundreds if not thousands of his supporters would descend on Washington DC, fully armed, to defend their President. In addition, as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Trump would issue an order to have the US Armed Forces to come in his defense by surrounding the White House with all available weapons not only to protect him but also his supporters.

President Trump will have no qualms in using his "personal" Attorney General, William (Dr. Faustus) Barr, to launch investigations of alleged widespread fraud to justify his claims that the elections were stolen from him.  

The White House is a fortress. President Truman rebuilt everything except for the façade. It is built like a high rise building with a steel frame and bullet proof windows. A tank or artillery round or rounds cannot penetrate the walls or windows.

In addition to the famous situation room, there is an underground bunker that is atomic bomb proof with food and water to last for over a year for him, his cabinet, and staff. This is where Vice-President Cheney and the White House Staff spent their day during the 9-11 terrorist attack. The commercial airliner that was brought down in Pennsylvania, by the passengers, was destined for the White House. If he hunkers down there, it is almost impossible to bring him out. In addition, he can communicate with the outside world, specially his followers.

Will the Chief-of-Staff of the armed forces obey Trump’s orders? I really do not know. We would be trans-versing a new territory. Come January 20th, when Joe Biden would be our new President, would he give the order to physically remove Trump from the White House and arrest Trump’s armed followers that are surrounding the White House? If so, who will carry out such an order and how? How will the Secret Service act or react? Will Donald Trump tell his followers to take up arms to defend his Presidency unleashing a massive revolt or civil war? I have no doubt that Donald Trump would do that! I hate to be an alarmist, but I see no other outcome from a person with such a severe NPD. We are facing the biggest threat to our democracy in the history of our country!

Only time will tell. The only thing I pray for is for me to be utterly wrong with my prediction!
