With the Presidential elections coming up in the United States, campaigns have already begun. Donald Trump winning the last elections was not good news for many Americans. So, they want to bring a change this time. The Republicans have formed an anti-Trump group coming up with strategies and ideas to dissolve the Trump government. The Lincoln project is one such project they have been rooting on. They have launched the campaign where they criticize the current President bitterly to expose him.
In May, a video titled ‘Mourning in America’ went viral on social media gaining millions of views. The one-minute video criticized the Trump government relating to the high number of deaths due to COVID-19 and the increasing unemployment rates as businesses shut down. The title of the video was a slogan from the former Republican President Ronald Reagan ‘Mourning in America’ during his campaign in the 1984 elections.
What is the video about?
On 26th August, 2020 they updated the video adding a question. They asked that if America continues to go under this path of poverty, unemployment, and death, will there even be an America in 4 years. Replying to the video, Trump said that they are personally attacking the founders. They were calling the project ‘A Disgrace to Honest Abe’. A group of high-profile republicans want to topple the Trump administration. Previously, they were considered as an insider novelty.
But, now as social media has taken over, they have become an online sensation. George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson are the founders of the campaign. They launched themselves with the help of the New York Times. The project began on 17th December, 2019 to stop the increase of Trump followers who support him causing damage to the country and the constitution. Supporting Joe Bidden in the democratic nominee, the project is working to win at swing state.
The group involves conservatives from the ‘Never Trump’ movement. The project became famous for its personal attacks on Donald Trump. They lashed on his activities during his tenure as the president. They have also marked his mental fitness and physical fitness. The group has even targeted his wife Melania Trump. Even the group received criticism for being aggressive in the videos.
But, they stated that this is the way to portray all the useless activities Trump has acted on during his tenure. They have raised $23 million till April and will be spending around $4 million on anti-Trump advertising activities. The group is making all these efforts to get them out of power in the upcoming elections. We will keep you updated regarding the US Presidential elections. Until then, stay tuned and stay safe.
