President Donald Trump is all but one-hundred-percent certain to lose re-election. Election experts say it's likely, when all is said and done, that not only will Joe Biden be declared President-elect, but he will have won in a massive 306-232 Electoral College victory.
Biden now leads in states worth 306 electoral votes. Here's how the map will probably finish https://t.co/jsriBmroWb— Nate Cohn (@Nate Cohn)1604671719.0
Trump has said he will not concede.
But he doesn't have to.
Contrary to what Trump believes, he is not the federal government. He is not even the executive branch, and not even the White House.
The U.S. government is an entity unto itself. And it is still functioning.
Which means that those responsible for the safety and security of the federal government are doing their jobs to protect it, and its leaders.
CNN reports the airspace over Joe Biden's home has now been restricted.
"New restricted 'national defense airspace' has been put in place over Democratic nominee Joe Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware," according to CNN.
"The FAA says airspace has also been temporarily restricted over the nearby Chase Center, where the stage is set for a possible Biden victory speech – should he ultimately win the presidential election."
That's not the only move the federal government has taken.
"More US Secret Service agents have also been sent to Wilmington, Delaware, in anticipation of a potential Joe Biden presidential win," CNN adds. "The extra Secret Service agents were sent to Delaware on Thursday, two sources said, with one law enforcement source telling CNN, 'This was anticipated.'"

Trump HAS to know that the protected airspace over Biden's house means he is president-elect. And so does the GOP. #Election2020— Victoria Brownworth🎄🕎☮ (@Victoria Brownworth🎄🕎☮)1604674999.0
