(Dan Tri) – The wave of ethnic protests spreading in the US is expected to have a major impact on the election next November and could be a deciding factor in President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

Violent racial protests spread to the White House.

US President Donald Trump’s administration is facing great pressure as ethnic protests spread after the death of black citizen George Floyd – who was pinned to death by police on May 25.

However, Straits Times news agency said that this wave of anger is unlikely to cause Mr. Trump to lose many votes in the election next November.

In a widely shared article on June 1, former US President Barack Obama commented: “If we want to bring about real change, the choice is not between protest and politics.

Black citizen George Floyd, 46 years old, in Minneapolis was held on his neck by police for nearly 9 minutes on May 25 despite pleading because he could not breathe.

Protesters called for reform of the justice system to address ethnic discrimination.

“I hear some saying that the current state of racism in our justice system shows that only protests and direct action can bring about change.”

The votes of minority communities can change the electoral landscape and Mr. Biden needs the support of black voters to be able to win votes in the upcoming race for the White House.

Theodore Johnson, senior expert at the Brennan Center for Justice, commented: “Democratic voters of color choose the candidate they think can defeat incumbent President Trump.

A study by Princeton University scientist Omar Wasow found that violent protests in 1968 following the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. appear to have caused between 1.5% and 7.9%

`Unknown` election

Widespread protests along with criticism of the slow response to Covid-19 may be a blow to President Trump’s administration, but the impact of these crises on the upcoming November election is still significant.

The damage caused by violent protests will more or less disrupt America’s plan to restore the economy affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

While Mr. Trump repeatedly called for tough measures against protesters such as deploying the military, Mr. Biden’s response was the opposite.
