US President Donald Trump still refuses to acknowledge his loss in the presidential election. He did say on the American holiday Thanksgiving that he will hand over power to election winner Joe Biden in an orderly manner.
“If it turns out that my opponent has garnered the most electoral votes, I will leave the White House,” Trump said.
Whether Trump will be present at the inauguration of his successor Joe Biden on January 20 next year, he left in the middle. “I know the answer, but I’m not going to tell you yet,” said the outgoing president.
Trump once again sneered at Fox News, media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s right-wing television channel that has supported him through thick and thin for years. “The ratings have taken a plunge and will continue to fall,” Trump said.
The official results are then forwarded to the newly formed Congress. The Senate and the House of Representatives will meet for the first time in new composition in a joint session on January 6.
President Trump would plan to start a digital media channel now that Fox News is less on his side than before, sources said earlier this month.
