The victory of the Democratic Party in the US was not accidental, it was even announced earlier by CNN against the Republican Party in which Trump was elected president in 2016-2020. The reasons for Trump's defeat are numerous, despite Trump trying to stabilize the US economy and finances even by not waging any war during his 4 years of presidency, for which he deserves a Nobel Prize for avoiding world wars, but His slogan "Make America Great Again" was not a demagogic slogan but a slogan that showed the true state of the US at home and abroad. The country with the highest GDP in the world with $ 20.54 trillion compared to China, which in 2018 had $ 13.61 trillion and with a GDP per capita of $ 62,794.59, while China had in 2018 GDP per capita $ 9,770.85, has a budget deficit that exceeds the volume of the economy by 102% of GDP according to the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) for the fiscal year (A Closer Look at the Record $ 3.1 Trillion Deficit in FY 2020 | Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (crfb.org) ). The US of 2016 was with high unemployment with a health where you paid for your hair and only the insured while the uninsured found it difficult to be treated because the insurance did not cover the uninsured especially immigration. The US in 2016 had the largest immigration and Trump decided to build the wall with Mexico, precisely to avoid illegal immigration. Arguments that the US is an immigrant state Trump responded then that through today's immigration more enters drugs, prostitution (trafficking in women), violence, American taxpayers are paying dearly for this immigration. In addition to major domestic problems, in foreign policy Trump identified China as the main economic enemy - China and he did not consider Russia dangerous, but with Russia could be reached various agreements on armaments, but also to keep Russia "zap". Trump, like his predecessor Obama, continued with economic and financial sanctions. One success for Trump was the reduction of US troops in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, the agreement with dictator Kim on the nuclear arsenal, and the maintenance of control over China, which failed, and the control of Iran over its nuclear arsenal. Trump's biggest problems came from domestic politics, political rivals, and the powerful military lobby. who because Trump did not open wars, approached the Democratic Party. This was accompanied by the new "Fake News" war, a complicated war between sophisticated lies, half-truths, conflicts and personal clashes between Trump and Hillary Clinton, whom he called "crooked women", with Obama, with Senator John Mcain, even with billionaire Sorros, Twitter, and CNN who supported the American Democratic Party. Despite some reforms such as reducing unemployment, increasing the value of labor / h in dollars, health system adjustments, Trump was severely damaged by print media, tv media and powerful links Twitter, Facebook and his own staff, who in some cases he worked them "under the rug". Trump identified that the main economic enemy is China and that the US had major financial and economic problems, that immigrants are destroying the US, that democracy is distorted because of fake news, that the economy is down to earth because of the wars it opens, and so on. Trump did not open any war and this angered the politico-military lobby. The latter is the main cause. The November 3 election certainly showed a different reality from what the outside world always saw, but that inside the US was known: vote rigging, which may not have been as big as Trump identified, but it was a problem and it seems the US will have a lot of problems in the future already an element was identified that distorted the vote of American voters. One of Trump's failures remained racism, a phenomenon that Trump underestimated, but over which the American Democratic Party succeeded in reaching out to colored voters around it and even in states that traditionally voted for Republicans. The victory of the American Democratic Party, led by Biden, was a victory, which should be taken as such and in which the US accepts the winner regardless of the means by which it won the "war". Election contestation has been a rare problem in the US, which was resolved quickly as in the case of Bush-Al Gore, but this time the election contestation took an unprecedented and open form, namely that vote manipulation, sale and purchase of votes this time were more visible, but Trump having no political experience to manage such a phenomenon since before the election, managed to get rid of the solution of this problem as complex as it is dangerous to be noticed especially for the USA which is known as the champion of democracy. But Americans are also vulnerable to the phenomenon of vote manipulation, especially when there are powerful clans and individuals and great interests in this phenomenon. So Trump was not a "race" politician, but a billionaire businessman who entered politics because he saw that the US economy was suffering from stiff competition, especially from China and other growing economies such as India, Brazil, Turkey. and its own US satellites if we can call it the EU. Practically the US competed profitably through high-tech hi-tech and arms sales, which it sold to both allies and adversaries. Profit is important for business and the military lobby. Trump did not win because he was not a mischievous politician, but he was a trader. However, small Albania does not care who gets on and who gets off the chair of the US president. Albania is interested in the US, which has strongly helped the Albanian factor and it does not matter if it would be Trump again who is being insulted today, or Biden 78 years old, who has an extraordinary political experience because he has been elected senator 6 times and has been Vice President under President Obama from 2009 to 2016. The fact that the 73-year-old Trump, despite his opposition, which ended in a "pseudo coup seas" on January 6, acknowledged that Biden is the rightful President for The next 4 years and showed that the legal system in the US is independent and strong,
Certainly these elections showed that in the US the older generation of politicians are still active, but that the US needs the younger and more unpopular politicians with prejudices on both domestic and foreign affairs, but that policies must continue. of Woodrow Wilson, who received the Peace Prize in 1919, for the defense of small nations and that he was against war.
