President Trump thanked the troops in a Thanksgiving press conference-but after a reporter asked him whether he had big plans for his last Thanksgiving in the White House, the president spent the remaining time rehashing his claim that the election was a "massive fraud", insisting that he won "by a tremendous amount", and criticizing President-elect Joe Biden.
On Thursday, the president tweeted "HAPPY THANKSGIVING!" in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision late on Wednesday to block NY state from imposing attendance limits at religious services.
The reporter also tweeted a photo of the United States president, with the caption: "Don't let Joe Biden take credit for the vaccines, @realDonaldTrump says".
President Donald Trump snapped at a White House reporter on Thursday and called him a "lightweight" after the reporter asked whether Trump would concede to President-elect Joe Biden. After a hand recount of a close vote, Georgia declared Biden the victor there November 19 by a margin of 12,284 votes.
Trump, who took questions from reporters for the first time since the election, unleashed another round of complaints about the vote and theatrical warnings that "a lot of things" would happen before the Electoral College meets December 14 that could possibly change results. The network, which has faced criticism from Trump both during the campaign and after the election, said he is expected to discuss the results of the election, Covid-19 vaccine developments and his decision to pardon Michael Flynn in the first one-on-one interview with him since Election Day.
"It's gonna be a very hard thing to concede", he said.
He also declined to say whether he would attend Biden's inauguration, which is due to take place on January 20.
Trump still claims he won the election. In closing, the court seemed to find it necessary to spell out some legal basics for the president's team."Voters, not lawyers, choose the President". Instead, they vote for 538 officials, who are allocated to American states based on their population size. He made our country more divisive than it ever was.
What's the latest from Biden?Trump raged, as critics humiliated him with memes and skits mocking him, including his sitting on a child-sized desk for Thursday's event to convey Thanksgiving message to USA troops.
"This year, our turkey will be smaller and the clatter of cooking a little quieter, "Mr Biden and his wife Jill said in an op-ed published by CNN. Yet, we know it's the price of protecting each other and one we don't pay alone". "I think it's a possibility. they're trying to, look, between you people".
