On November 3, 2020, the 59th United States presidential election was held. To be exact, the election that day was not election to elect a president, but election that elect electoral college to elect the president.


When the electoral college is confirmed, real presidential election will be held On December 14, 2020. Next year, January 6, 2021, the final election results of the electoral college will be released. And, on January 20, 2021, the 46th President of the United States will be inaugurated Formally.


Now, you may have a question. How is the United States election system structured? Looking at the sentence above, system looks very complicated. According to the federal law enacted in 1792, United States elections are held every four years.


Election date is set on the first Tuesday of November. The United States is not a direct election like South Korea but adopting an indirect election system.


In South Korea, the people have suffrage and elect the president in person. On the other hand, In the United States, electoral college by state vote instead of all the people. This electoral college is elected by the voters.


In short, Voters elect the electoral college who have president voting rights, and electoral college elect president. The presidential candidate wins the election by securing a majority of the 538 electoral college. So that, the important thing of United States election is not securing voters but securing many electoral colleges.


Because of this system, in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton has more total votes than Donald Trump, but she is lost because electoral college’s vote is lack. The ‘winner takes all’ system is applied to the election of the electoral college.


It is the system a candidate who gets even one more vote takes all the votes from that state. The complicated system persists because of the constitution. The constitution is difficult to change, and the advantages of this system certainly exist.


Now, look at the current president. The current president of the United States is Donald Trump. Donald Trump is the 45th president of United States and a member of the Republican Party.


At the time of the election Unites States press said Hillary Clinton would be elected by 90%. Donald Trump denied it and he was eventually elected. Donald Trump was criticized to people because he repeated bad words and actions during his tenure.


He did not hesitate to speak demeaning other countries. As a result, the relationship between the United States and other countries get worse. He showed rough words and actions not only the country but also specific people or problems.


If you search the Internet right now, there will be a lot of controversy and criticism about Donald Trump.


He did not properly cope with COVID-19, in which the hottest topic in 2020. The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency said, “U.S is necessary to take action with a sense of crisis about COVID-19.”


But Donald Trump ignored the advice. As a result, the United States ranks first to COVID-19 confirmed person and dead all over the world. Even, Donald Trump posted a twit that I infected with COVID-19 in early October.


The President must develop the country and protect it from danger. But he was not responsible for his position, he also infected with COVID-19. These images are not suitable as president.


Because of a lot of bad things during Donald Trump's tenure, People paid attention to the United States presidential election. In the last presidential election, the Republican Party was dominant, but the Democratic party dominate this time.


President candidates are: Democratic party president and vice president candidates are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, The Republican party president and vice president candidates are Donald Trump and Mike Pence, The Libertarian party president and vice president candidates are Jo Jorgensen and Spike Cohen, The Green Party president and vice president candidates are Howard Hawkins and Angela Walker. There are many other candidates, but they are almost impossible.


Among them, the Democratic party and Republican party are nip and tuck. Other parties rarely had votes and did not get electoral college’s votes.


Joe Biden, a member of the Democratic Party, is the 47th Vice President. Prior to vice president, he was a member of the United States Senate. Joe Biden and Donald Trump have completely contradictory view of the Korea-US relationship.


Joe Biden said in official presidential debate “Xi Jinping is a Thug. You see what is happening right now in Hong Kong. China would have to play by the rules internationally as well."


Also, Joe Biden described Jong-un Kim with the word ‘Thug’ like Xi Jinping. And, as a prerequisite for meeting with Jong-un Kim, he demanded denuclearization Of the Korean Peninsula.


He added “If North Korea does not accept this request, the United States will clearly control North Korea.” Despite North Korea is continuing nuclear test, Donald Trump said “We not no war. We have good relationship.”


In the voting results confirmed on November 29, 2020, Joe Biden got 306 electoral college votes, Donald Trump got 232 electoral college votes.


Joe Biden and Donald Trump, Vote rate is 51.1% vs 47.2%. Joe Biden's election was almost confirmed. Donald Trump protested the counting process in some states, after he saw these result. And he Filed a lawsuit.


Donald Trump did not have adequate grounds. In the end, he failed to file a lawsuit. Even at the recount, Joe Biden was still dominant.


Many people including electoral college already consider Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 United States presidential election. Only one, Except Donald Trump.


On N
ovember 11, 2020, Donald Trump twit again, He said People will not accept this Rigged Election!” He continues to deny the result.


Unless there is a huge twist, we will see a new government lead by Joe Biden in January. Almost people want new United States government to make good relationship with other countries.


The new United States government will properly think about the right path. For everyone's happiness.
