Trump attacks McConnell for giving up a losing battlePosted by Josh Taylor / December 16, 2020
The electoral college decided in favor of Joe Biden, the final step in an unusually long and contentious election cycle. As a result, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has finally congratulated Joe Biden for winning the 2020 election and advised Republicans to accept his victory. Now, Donald Trump is attacking McConnell for refusing to continue the absurd charade that Trump somehow won the presidential election.
Joe Biden now has enough electoral college votes to secure the White House.The election is finally over, after a seemingly endless series of delay tactics by the Trump campaign. The General Services Administration has finally sent the Biden team the message that Trump will begin the transition process.
Joe Biden’s lead over Donald Trump has surpassed six million votes, with the final ballots still coming in. Biden has already won the popular vote by ten million more votes than any other president in American history.
There has been speculation that, this whole time, Donald Trump was “very aware” that he lost the election, but he allegedly put up a fight as a “performance”. Some 80% of Trump’s supporters think that Biden’s win was illegitimate. This has terribly implications for our nation. If we lose faith in our system, our system collapses. Now that Trump has no real chance, let’s see how he and his followers deal.
About a week ago, Trump began to openly admit that Biden won the election, in his own, petty way. He couldn’t do it immediately or risk losing face with his supporters. Around the same time, the Trump campaign has dropped its ridiculous lawsuit demanding a ballot recount in Arizona, after they realized that the margin of victory could not be overcome.
We wonder how much money Trump made from his “election fraud defense fund,” which he used to fundraise for his own legal fees pay off campaign debts.
