The past few months I've seen a lot of "the secret service would arrest Trump if he did anything to challenge Biden's position as the President-elect", and I can't see it as anything other than a tremendously stupid take. And I would love to eat shit on that.

But at the end of the day the President, and all former Presidents, hold a strong symbolic position in the US. Which is somewhat unique in a democracy. Arresting Trump is more like arresting the Queen than arresting a typical politician.

it's the secret services job to remove a non-sitting president who refuses to vacate the white house, like this is known

if it'd actually happen or not is another story, but i'd be hard pressed to believe that they haven't already planned out the scenario if trump did refuse to leave

Trump is saying hes going to flee the country when he loses. Sounds very cool and very legal.

Yeah last night he said if he loses hes going to leave the country.

And, again, hopefully hes stopped and arrested if he tries. Do you really want the president loading a bunch of state secrets and launch codes on to Air Force One and handing them to Putin?

The plan is "do nothing and hope somebody else solves the problem to avoid major backlash"

not really sure what backlash the secret service would face that would actually matter to them

It is worth noting that the secret service, the pentagon, and all of our intelligence agencies are no fans of Trump, so I'm certain if he does try this they will intervene.

I'm getting confused, people are talking about 2 opposite things. Not sure which this post and Joe_Biden's (amazing that was open as a user name till this month, lol) are talking about.
1) Trump refuses to vacate office
2) Trump flees to Russia just before his term ends to evade justice

I have no doubt they'll toss his ass out of the White House Jazzy Jeff style if 1) happens.
My concern is 2). Legally, I really don't think anyone has the power to stop the president from traveling where he wants to, and once he's there it'll be impossible to make him come back.

Look at it this way: He finally committed to peaceful transition of power.

Well, they've been successfully harming our country since Reagan appealed to them in the 1980's, so maybe they should be taken seriously.
For the danger they pose.


Sure they have.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/10/20/coronavirus-covid-live-updates-us/

The novel coronavirus has caused about 285,000 more deaths in the United States between Feb. 1 and Sept. 16 than in an average year, according to a Tuesday report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The health agency said that people ages 25 to 44 were particularly hit hard, with an excess death rate shooting up 26.5 percent over that in past years. Racial and ethnic minority groups, including Black Americans and Latinos, were found to be among the hardest hit.

Trump is right that the numbers of deaths for COVID are bogus.
...Just not in the direction he hoped.

EDIT: Gentle reminder that the time period in question ended Sept. 16, a month prior to now. So you should look at the supposed death toll as of that date for comparison, not the 221K we have currently, in mid-October.
