EXPRESS – 01/08/2020: After ordering the attack on Iran, Donald Trump gained even more popularity across the States. The election year is upon us, and this is precisely what he needed, and probably wanted. So, what are Mr. Trump’s chances of winning now?
As you probably heard or read, Donald Trump ordered the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. This action made Iran and the rest of the Middle East uneasy of the future that will come. We are upon another war conflict in this territory. When the news of Soleimani’s demise became public, the phrase World War 3 started to trend on Twitter. Iran was fast to promise revenge, while most of the world’s leaders called for both sides to remain calm and seek a peaceful solution.
During Soleimani’s funeral, the now head of the Revolutionary Guard, Hossein Salami, promised a ‘hard and definite revenge. Soleimani was one of Iran’s most powerful man, second only to Ayatullah Ali Khamenei.
Donald Trump is, on the other hand, without a doubt, one of the world’s most powerful men. As such, he was not hesitant to threaten Iran via Twitter on numerous occasions, even after Baghdad Airport attacks.
While the world is looking to deescalate USA/Iran issue that started with Soleimani kill, Trump is also taking care of the upcoming elections. Thanks to decisive action, in what’s perceived as a war against terrorism, attack on Iran contributed to Trump’s popularity. He’s now ahead of his competitors ahead of 2020 general elections.
The odds of Donald Trump winning the next presidential elections improved, according to Oddschecker. Since the start of the Iran conflict, 65% of betters put their money on Trump to win in 2020. They not only believe that Donald Trump is going to be the Republican candidate but that he will defeat the democrat candidate for another four years at the Oval office.
At the moment, the odds are on Joe Biden to be his adversary in 2020. Who do you believe will be the head of America in the coming years?
