I am sure that many of you have heard the name of Edmund Davis. I had not heard of him until I read it somewhere last week. He was the Governor of Texas who lost the election in 1873. He refused to accept the result, and he barricaded himself in the State Capital, where he and his allies accessed entry each day by ladders. I had thought that that was the way Donald Trump was going to deal with Joe Biden.
“I feel like I can breath again”. It was a term often heard after it became clear Joe Biden had won the 2020 US Presidential Election. Yet if Irish people felt they could ‘breath’ as the votes pointed to a Trump defeat, what was going through the minds of Americans living in Galway?
Well, here we are again, with regard to the US Presidential race.
The elected members of Mayo County Council have congratulated US President-elect Joe Biden on his victory in last week's US Presidential election.
I am sure you are all square-eyed, as I am, from looking at TV for the last five or six days. Can you believe it? The American election was last Tuesday, and I am writing this column on the Tuesday of the following week, and still President Trump is shouting that the vote was stolen from him and that he is the true President.
The President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, was among the first to congratulate American President-elect Joe Biden on his success.
The collective sighs of relief and whoops of joy were audible throughout the free-thinking world. Democrat Joe Biden eclipsed incumbent Donald Trump at the polls to become the 46th president of the United States, and also the 23rd to have Irish roots.
I expect that many people were able to look at the debate between Senator Kamala Harris for the Democratic Party and Mike Pence, the vice-president, for the Republican Party. It was on TV the morning after the debate, when RTÉ ran it for an hour and a half.
Trouble, turmoil, toil – I make no excuse for using alliteration to describe all the week’s events since we last spoke together.
The campaign between Joe Biden and Donald Trump gets into full swing this week. By the time this column is printed, there will have been the first debate, which is on Tuesday night or should I say Wednesday morning at 2am, between the two candidates: Biden for the Democrats and Trump for the Republican Party. I would love to see the debate as it happens, but I know I would fall asleep.
