Moghalu said that no one knows who will win between former President Donald Trump and Biden.

He explained that anyone writing off Biden because he is old and fumbled on the first debate is jumping on a bandwagon, saying it says nothing about the real outcome of the election.

In a post on his X handle on Thursday, Moghalu noted that Trump has been convicted on 34 felony counts but it doesn’t rule out his chances of beating Biden.

He said: “The brouhaha over whether @JoeBiden should step down is much ado about not much. The US presidential election campaigns have not begun seriously.

“Elites do not speak for ordinary Americans. We don’t know who will win between Donald Trump and Biden, but anyone writing off Biden because he is old (with many concrete governance achievements, but also supportive of some deeply controversial social policies) and fumbled on the first debate is jumping on a bandwagon that says nothing about the real outcome of the election.

“At the same time, that Trump has been convicted on 34 felony counts doesn’t rule out his chances of beating Biden.

“Odd though it may seem, today’s America is one where right-wing populism has gone mainstream. There are some valid reasons for this. Let’s just watch this race.”
