According to a survey from Seven Letter Insight, two-thirds of Republican voters want to see President Donald Trump run again in 2024. By then, the embattled president, who is certain to face legal challenges as soon as his term ends on January 20 and whose political future is in doubt, would be 78.
More than 100 business leaders, including George H. Walker, the chief executive of the money manager Neuberger, and Jon Gray, president of the private-equity firm Blackstone, have co-signed a letter urging General Services Administration (GSA) chief Emily Murphy to authorize the presidential transition. They expressed their concern that President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede and acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden’s victory poses a great risk to the country.
More than 40 officials, including former Cabinet secretaries and civic leaders, have participated in a $2 million ad by the bipartisan National Council on Election Integrity calling for President Donald Trump and his allies to accept the results of the 2020 general election and cooperate with the Biden-Harris transition.

President Donald Trump attacked the state of Michigan for the second day in a row, claiming, without any evidence, that voter fraud in the city of Detroit is “rampant.”
“Voter Fraud in Detroit is rampant, and has been for many years!” the president wrote earlier this morning. His tweet was almost immediately flagged under Twitter’s civic integrity policy, which forbids users on the platform from disseminating falsehoods about elections.
Claims that the 2020 general election was fraudulent are unsubstantiated and United States security officials have rejected President Donald Trump’s assertion that the election was rigged.
But that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to claim “there was no way” Democrats could have won the election without rigging it altogether. But lose Trump did: President-elect Joe Biden received 306 electoral votes while the sitting president received 232, becoming the first one-term Republican in the executive office since George H.W. Bush.
During the 2020 election, voters in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania voted for Joe Biden. This wasn’t too big a surprise as those states had traditionally voted blue.
The GOP, though, was dismayed by the fact that Democrats were able to flip Arizona and Georgia. Georgia, a long-time stronghold for Republicans, was particularly galling.
Donald Trump can’t handle the reality that he lost the 2020 election. Now that most of the votes have been counted and Trump trails by more than 5 million votes, he needs to engage in conspiracy theorizing and outright lying.
Slowly but surely, more and more Republican lawmakers have been willing to discuss the reality that Joe Biden won the presidential election. This was obvious today in the senate when a number of GOP senators congratulated Kamala Harris when she returned to the floor.
President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden but has thus far refused to concede the presidential race and ordered White House officials not to participate in the transition.

There are people on Fox News that are seen as hyper-partisan. Among them, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro, Laura Ingraham. Then there are the more straight news reporters like Chris Wallace, Martha McCallum and Bret Baier.
Donald Trump has yet to come to grips with the fact that he has lost the 2020 election. Both his family and others close to him in the White House have encouraged Trump to fight and try to get the election results changed.
President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox News earlier this morning, saying its “daytime ratings have completely collapsed” since they called the election for President-elect Joe Biden.
“Weekend daytime even WORSE,” the president continued. “Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what them successful, what got them there.”
Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany falsely claimed that it would be “constitutionally accurate” for Republican legislatures to appoint electors who would certify the results of the 2020 general election for President Donald Trump despite his loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
President Donald Trump spent his morning continuing to push a false election fraud narrative, insisting that he still has time to “win” certain states despite electoral math not being in his favor. It’s been several days since the election was called for President-elect Joe Biden.
Donald Trump and some in his orbit still have not given up on winning the White House. In order to do so he would have to have the results reversed in at least one state.
