It has, indeed, been 18 days since the elections on November 3rd and it’s time — way past time, actually — for Donald Trump to acknowledge the results of the election and get on with the transition.
The fact that he won’t is not a surprise. But it’s still important for Americans — including those in faith communities — to speak up and say that the delay is self-serving and is harming the Country.
Many have been doing that, of course, but with each day that passes, the need to speak up and stay focused and engaged becomes even greater, even more urgent.
I know as I write this that the situation is not likely to be resolved quickly. There no reason to believe that it will.
But we must keep calling on this lawless President and his allies to do the right thing and help our Nation through this difficult transition.
A situation where our Nation’s Chief Executive refuses to help in this situation would be bad enough. But actively, intentionally trying to sabotage the process?
It’s just one more reason why this President’s legacy will be one of ineptitude, failure and shame.
