Joe Biden Is Certified As The 46th President Of The United States

After a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, forcing lawmakers to evacuate and disrupting the proceedings, Congress rejected Republican challenges to Mr. Biden’s Electoral College victory. Congress confirmed President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory early Thursday morning, hours after a mob of loyalists urged on by President Trump stormed and occupied the Capitol, disrupting the final electoral count in a shocking display of violence that shook the core of American democracy. There was no parallel in modern American history, with insurgents acting in the president’s name vandalizing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, smashing windows, looting art and briefly taking control of the Senate chamber, where they took turns posing for photographs with fists up on the dais where ...

I Can’t Decertify Biden’s Win – US Vice President Mike Pence Tells Trump

US Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday January 5, reportedly told President Donald Trump that he does not have the authority to decertify President-elect Joe Biden's win when Congress meets to count electoral votes.   Pence finds himself in the most precarious position of his tenure as he prepares to preside over Wednesday’s congressional tally of Electoral College votes, bearing witness to the formalization of Trump’s election defeat.   At the end of the count, seated on the House of Representatives’ rostrum, Pence has the task of announcing who has won the majority of votes for both president and vice president.   Despite the pro forma nature of Pence’s role, he is under intense pressure from the president and legions of supporters to overturn Biden'...

Don’t Talk To Me That Way, I’m The US President – Trump To Reporter

US President Donald Trump snapped at a reporter on Thursday night, November 26, when asked to explain his electoral fraud allegations. Thursday was the first time Trump has taken questions from reporters since the election. Since US media outlets projected Biden as the winner earlier this month, Trump has refused to accept the results, instead pushing conspiracies that his second term is being stolen and launching a legal effort to overturn results. During the tense press exchange, Trump, for the first time stated he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, but still continued with his voter fraud allegations saying he's not prepared to concede. "Certainly I will, and you know that," Trump said when asked by a reporter about l...

I Will Give up Power If Electoral College Votes Biden In December – DonaId Trump

President Donald Trump gave defiant Thanksgiving remarks at the White House Thursday, insisting falsely that he beat Joe Biden and wavering on whether he would ever concede or attend Biden’s inauguration. It was the first time Trump responded to questions from reporters since the election. He said if the electoral college confirms Biden’s victory, “they’ve made a mistake,” but that he would give up power and leave the White House. “Certainly I will, and you know that,” Trump said in remarks after speaking via videoconference to U.S. troops to mark the Thanksgiving holiday. Trump twice declined to say he would formally concede though, adding that would be a very hard thing to do. He also continued to complain about what he called a fraud in the tabulation of votes from the N...

Trump Asked Aides Of Possibility Of Replacing Electoral College With Loyalists

President Donald Trump has been asking aides about a plan to remain in office by subverting the Electoral College, The New York Times reported Thursday. Under the scenario, GOP-controlled state legislatures would ignore the popular vote in swing states, appointing Trump loyalists to the Electoral College to secure the president a second term. Business Insider reported earlier Thursday that the plan was gaining currency among some Trump supporters — despite how unlikely it is to work. Experts say that the scenario, though technically possible, faces enormous legal and political obstacles. The sources who spoke to the Times stressed that though Trump asked about the plan, he did not seem to entertain it seriously. President Donald Trump asked top aides about a wild plan in...

Sen. Chuck Schumer Thank God for China Because Trump Can’t Tweet … Or Can He?

Chuck Schumer just took a jab at President Trump and the entire country of China ... but gave a fast food chain a ringing endorsement. We got the New York Senator at Capitol Hill Wednesday and asked about China's Twitter ban ... he says the policy's a good thing -- at least while the Prez is there. As for China as a whole ... Schumer's clearly not a fan. The joke's on Chuck, though ... because Trump's still tweeting away, reportedly with the help of special equipment that lets him bypass the country's Internet firewall. Right around the time we talked to Schumer, Trump posted a reminder of last year's election victory. Congratulations to all of the ”DEPLORABLES” and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory! pic.twitter.com/7ifv5gT7Ur ...

Clinton Wins Trump In Dixville Notch

Voters in a New Hampshire hamlet, Dixville Notch have kicked off voting in the US presidential election. Residents of the hamlet cast their votes at midnight. Out of the six votes cast, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump four votes to two, a result that may foreshadow voting trends hours later in the rest of polling stations across America. Libertarian Gary Johnson received one vote, and Mitt Romney received a surprise write-in ballot, USA Today reported. According to New Hampshire law, communities with fewer than 100 voters can open their polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered voters have cast their ballots. The best known of these three towns, Dixville Notch has been voting at midnight every election since 1960. Neil Tillotson, the former owner of the Balsa...
