American University Professor Allan Lichtman has predicted that Joe Biden will defeat President Donald Trump of the United States of America in the coming presidential election.
Lichtman is famous for accurately predicting the winner of every presidential election since 1984.
He was one of the few forecasters who said Trump would be the next president. He also predicted that Trump would be impeached.
"The keys predict that Trump will lose the White House," Lichtman says in a New York Times video op-ed released Wednesday, August 5.
However, he said that there are extraordinary factors that could still alter the outcome.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that over 200 prospective immigrants from about 70 countries across the world have sued Donald Trump after the US president issued an executive order suspending immigration until 2021.
The immigrants, it was gathered, had won the United States government’s Diversity Visa lottery programme prior to Trump's executive order.
But with the US president suspending all migration into the country amid the emergence of the Covid-19 crisis, the American hopefuls' dream seems to have been dampened, prompting them to institute a lawsuit against America's number one citizen.
Trump had enacted the order in June 2020, saying it was geared towards protecting the American markets and jobs from thousands of immigrants.
This apparently prevented over 50,000 winners of the "Diversity Visa Giveaway" from completing the process of their immigrant visa application.
According to the Heraldmail, the federal lawsuit, which was filed in the district of Columbia, claims that the Trump administration has repeatedly attacked the Diversity Visa program created by Congress in 1990.
“The plaintiffs in the case followed the rules, and did everything they were supposed to do. They had planned to build a new life in the United States of America,” the lawyer Curtis Lee Morrison, based in Los Angeles said.
Legit.ng had also reported that thousands of foreign students studying various degree programmes may be forced out of the United States, marking Nigeria out as one of the counties that may be affected by the new policies set to be introduced by President Trump.
Facing the prospect of losing the 2020 presidential election, Trump, through the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), announced on Monday, July 6, that international students may risk deportation.
