FAQ #1: Are you saying Hilary should be President? Won't stopping Trump and Pence from taking office just give us Hillary?

World Can't Wait | December 29, 2016

The election of Donald Trump was not the will of the people.  This election was illegitimate and his ascension to power would be even more illegitimate and so must not be allowed. No!

We aren't saying Hilary should be president. In fact, World Can’t Wait was at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) calling the whole election between a fascist (Trump) and a war criminal (Clinton) illegitimate.

There are many ways the rulers of this empire may choose to resolve Trump being unseated from office by mass opposition. While people have risen up and unseated leaders before, what is being demanded of us is unprecedented in this country. Both how the empire and the people will resolve this is as yet undetermined.  

Our focus must be to stop the Trump/Pence regime before it comes into office. Failing to act to stop Trump/Pence before they get into office out of fear of getting Hilary undercuts the real damage a fascist regime does and does very quickly. The people of the world, including our brothers and sisters in this country who are in the crosshairs of the Trump administration (and the fascist movement that has been unleashed), deserve nothing less than uncompromising resistance that does not stop until the fascists are stopped.

All of that said, massive resistance of millions and millions in the streets rejecting this presidency and acting with determination and daring would dramatically transform the whole political landscape, including the people themselves and what the people see as possible and desirable.



World Can't Wait mobilizes people living in the United States to stand up and stop war on the world, repression and torture carried out by the US government. We take action, regardless of which political party holds power, to expose the crimes of our government, from war crimes to systematic mass incarceration, and to put humanity and the planet first.
