Trump’s Allies Abandon Him As His Failed Legal ‘Strategy’ Documents Biden’s Obvious Victory
November 19, 2020
Trump’s legal “strategy” has been a complete failure and has only further documented President-elect Biden’s obvious victory. Business leaders and his own chief of staff have accepted reality, but that hasn’t stopped Trump from lying about his election defeat.
Trump’s own chief of staff admitted Trump’s term was coming to an end.
CNN’s Kevin Liptak: “Mark Meadows attended GOP lunch at the Capitol today and offered what senators are describing as a good-bye message. Cornyn tells reporters Meadows talked about ‘basically just there are about 45 days left of the president’s term.’”
Business leaders have abandoned Trump and are calling on him to not delay President-elect Biden’s transition a moment longer.
U.S. Chamber of Commerce CEO: President Trump “should not delay the transition a moment longer.”
National Association of Manufacturers leadership: “Further, we call on the Trump administration to work cooperatively with President-elect Biden and his team.”
JPMorgan Chase chairman and CEO: “We need a peaceful transition. We had an election. We have a new president. You should support that whether you like it or not because it’s based on a system of faith and trust.”
The Business Roundtable: “Business Roundtable congratulates President-elect Biden on his election as 46th President of the United States.”
Trump’s legal “strategy” has been a failure and is only documenting Biden’s obvious victory in the election, which wasn’t even close.
Axios: “President Trump’s frantic post-election challenges are having the opposite effect of what he intended: He’s documenting his demise through a series of court fights and recounts showing Joe Biden’s victory to be all the more obvious and unassailable.”
Associated Press: “President-elect Joe Biden’s winning tally is approaching a record 80 million votes as Democratic bastions continue to count ballots and the 2020 election cracks turnout records.”
Trump continues to lie about the election, but he can’t change reality.
The Detroit News: “Despite what he says in tweets, President Trump lost Michigan”
NBC News: “Fact check: Trump’s bogus claim of more votes in Detroit than people”
PolitiFact: “A multitude of evidence supports the statement released by Krebs’ former agency that the election was not rigged. Trump’s claim is not grounded in evidence. We rate it Pants on Fire!”
Washington Post Fact Checker: “Trump is in overdrive, tweeting one absurd falsehood after another to delegitimize the election he lost.”
