Itâs a question that has seemingly provoked increasing concern among some Americans in recent weeks amid reports that President Donald Trump was preparing a massive legal response to combat the potential results of the 2020 national election: what happens if he refuses to leave the White House?

President Donald Trump went to Omaha, Nebraska Tuesday night hoping to boost his chances of winning the area's competitive electoral college vote. But he left a logistical mess in his wake at Eppley Airfield as scores of people were left trying to get back to their vehicles via buses from the large-scale event in the midst of a raging pandemic. Trump's rallies during the pandemic have already worried health experts because, even when they're outdoors, the large events feature little in the way of social distancing and lax mask-wearing from the audience.

“Some undecideds turn out to be people who’ve long felt alienated from the two big political parties.”
“They’re not following the 24-hour news cycle. The election and politics are just not a high priority.”
