Trump to speak on all days of the RNC
Tunisia–A Tunisian judge has now released an international warrant against former president Moncef Marzouki from Paris under the pretext of being accused of “plotting against the external security of the state.” This event took place 76, days after the former leader urged France not to support the dictatorial regime of President Saied in Tunisia. Marzouki had accused the president of carrying out a coup. In response, Saied has accused the former leader of plotting against the state.
Mr. Marzouki was a Tunisian leader from 2011 to 2014. Marzouki openly declared to the press in October in Paris where he now resides that Saied was responsible for plotting against the revolution and the abolishment of the constitution.
He also said he was not concerned by any decision issued by these illegitimate authorities. Saied has brushed aside most of the constitution to seize near total power, which Mr. Marzouki and other critics have called a coup.
Additionally, in a Facebook post, he slammed the nascent and was open in saying on public television that he was not surprised by the arrest warrant and called it a threatening message to all Tunisians. In October, the current President ordered the Justice Ministry to open an inquiry into Mr. Marzouki, 76 days after the former leader urged France not to support his dictatorial regime. This was followed by the humiliating act of revoking the senior politician’s diplomatic passport as well.
Earlier on July 25th, Mr. Saied sacked the government, suspended the legislature and seized control of the judiciary, later moving to rule by decree in the North African nation. In a statement issued, the president accused traitors that seek refuge overseas of threatening Tunisia’s sovereignty. ‘He is the greatest enemy of Tunisia’, Mr. Saied said.
The event will focus on the highlights of Trump’s term pre-pandemic and promises for the next term. The convention will carry a “hopeful message” of law and order, gun rights, tax cuts and reinstating the “forgotten” people of America. They are likely to steer clear of the virus and Trump’s handling of it. With 175,000 citizens dead because of the pandemic, the country is faring very poorly compared to other developed countries and the blame for this has squarely been laid at Trump’s feet.
The Republicans desperately need to make this election a choice and not a referendum on Trump. He will need to go hard and strong after independent voters who seem to have abandoned him since the last elections. And as much as he would like to avoid it, he needs to give credible solutions to improving race relations and recovering from the coronavirus crisis. Trump’s second term depends on him being able to provide a clear rationale for his reelection; unlike the first time, the country is in no mood for brash rhetoric.
