Politico reporter Anna Palmer on Monday told CNN that the president is still in denial about having lost the election to President-elect Joe Biden and compared his actions to those of a toddler.
"The president seems to still be kind of holding a temper tantrum, frankly," she said. "Last night at 11:55, he tweeted in all caps, "I WON THE ELECTION!" If that's not what losing sounds like, I don't know what it is."
She then said even Republicans were getting fed up with the president's antics.
"Every single other person, Republicans alike for the most part, are really shaking their heads at him," she said. "To your point, this isn't even just, 'Oh, he's having a temper tantrum, we'll just let him do this for the next several days until the transfer of power happens.' There's real implications here when it comes to the U.S. security, when it comes to how foreign governments are looking at this, but also just even the transition of power and making sure that President-elect Joe Biden can get the preparation he needs."
She added that, "right now, that's not happening."
