President Donald Trump refused to concede after losing the 2020 presidential race on Saturday.
As he was returning to the White House from a day at his Virginia golf course, he had drive to drive by the jubilations on the streets of DC as Americans celebrated President-elect Joe Biden.
Once he was back in the White House, he tweeted lies in all capital letters — falsely claiming he won the election.
Someone is watching coverage of Biden's win, which had not been called yet when he left the White House several hours ago. https://t.co/GvVVPemesv

And after hours of consulting with his top advisors, the President opts to go with the “Giant baby strategy.” https://t.co/wd3arqLyp2

This is pathetic. But also dangerous. I trust federal officials, from the Cabinet down, understand they should not obey unlawful orders. And I trust various Republican eminences will speak up–at long last–to limit the damage Trump can still do to our institutions and country. https://t.co/VxKbs7s89M

Trump baffled by vaccine hold-up because he has the ’emotional make-up of a small child’: CNN
Reporting on a planned White House task force meeting on Tuesday where FDA head Steven Hahn is expected to provide an update on the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, CNN's John Harwood said officials in the government are having to fend off a pestering Donald Trump.
According to CNN's Jim Sciutto, Trump is "upset" that the vaccine hasn't been released to the public yet because he doesn't understand the complexity of the massive public health project and why the FDA hasn't approved the vaccine's release.
"This is not the first time we've been concerned about the president interfering, perhaps with an eye towards politics, to the scientific questions about vaccine approval. What do we know?" Sciutto asked.
Republicans are giving Trump ‘two more weeks’ to see the ‘writing on the wall’ before intervening: CNN’s Raju
Top Republican officials are remaining silent as President Donald Trump continues peddling false conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, but a new report from CNN's Manu Raju suggests their patience does have its limits.
During an interview with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Raju said that Republicans know they're going to have to acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden won the election at some point, although they're trying to string it out for as long as they can to avoid angering the president.
"Republican senators tell me they believe this will all sort itself out on December 14th," he explained. "I have it at two more weeks, hoping it gets resolved by the time that the state electors are chosen, and at that time they hope the president sees the writing on the wall and they do not have to get involved."
Here’s how Biden plans to roll back Trump’s executive orders in his first 100 days
On Tuesday, CNN reported that President-elect Joe Biden is already mapping out his agenda for the first 100 days — including a series of actions rolling back outgoing President Donald Trump's executive orders on a wide spectrum of issues.
"Trump officials have gutted or hamstrung agencies whose charters clash with the President's long-running efforts to crush what his former chief strategist derisively labeled 'the administrative state,'" reported Gregory Krieg, MJ Lee, and Sarah Mucha. "That means an early effort, Biden indicated in his NBC News interview, to rebuild the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA, he said, has been 'eviscerated' by Trump."
