While President Donald Trump still hasn’t conceded — and may never concede — the 2020 presidential election, sources close to the president are already pondering his next moves after leaving the White House.

According to ABC News’ John Santucci, plans are already being dusted off for Trump to launch his own cable news network that will serve as a rival to Fox News.

“Anger at Fox/Murdoch family cannot be understated,” Santucci writes. “Should he lose, Trump wants to destroy Fox — aides believe they can steal hosts [Sean] Hannity and [Tucker] Carlson.”

Trump has regularly complained about Fox News’ coverage of the 2020 presidential race, and his campaign has been furious at the network for being the first to call the race in Arizona for Democratic rival Joe Biden.

Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch reportedly called Trump this week and told him that he had lost the 2020 election, which further increased the president’s rage at his one-time favorite cable news network.

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance.

Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
