A few hours passed before the airtime, when I saw the presidential tweet with the verb with the eye.
Joe Biden “won,” Donald Trump said.
Of course, the president said he “won because the election was rigged.” And there was a blow to the “fake and silent media.”
But Trump is a major online envoy. After a long week of insisting that he had not lost the election, which the media and even some Republicans say he had lost, he needed to know the meaning of putting the word “won” next to his opponent’s name. I immediately decided to do this tweet and the digital explosion it caused, leading to Media Buzz.
Every major news organization publishes a story on Sunday morning. Media liberals have flocked to Twitter to say Trump was reluctant to back down. He was not, of course ̵
Maybe Trump has underestimated how many dogs will hear the whistle. He soon posted a semi-corrective second tweet about Biden: “He only won in the eyes of the FALSE MEDIA. I do not admit ANYTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a FILGED CHOICE! “

When I asked senior campaign adviser Jason Miller about the first tweet, he said the president was talking about “the media thinking they’re acting like Joe Biden has already won,” when the states didn’t validate the votes.
I would just point out that the media is behaving as if Trump has already won the election after he was projected to be the winner in 2016, long before the necessary state certificates, and his team had no problem with that. Obviously not official. Until yesterday morning, the president returned to “I won the election!”
In my opinion, Trump remains in love with the story of the stolen election to lay the groundwork for his post-presidency, whether as a Republican king, the leader of a network to compete with Fox News, or simply as a comprehensive cultural force.
Andy McCarthy, a Trump supporter who often defends him in the National Review, admires it, saying the president’s legal efforts have a “fatal problem”: in every state on the battlefield, “there is always a mismatch between alleged wrongdoing and protection can give …
“I’m not happy about that – I wanted Trump to beat Biden. However, I do not legally see how Trump’s campaign will change the result in one country, much less in three countries. “
There were other hints of real politics, in addition to former officials such as John Kelly and John Bolton, who hit their former boss to block the transition. White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said yesterday: “Look, if the Biden-Harris ticket is the winner and, you know, obviously things look like this now, we’re going to have a very professional transition from the National Security Council. . “
The most pressing problem is the growing coronavirus, with America affected by a million news cases in six days and hospitalizations in record numbers. Still, Biden’s team, including former Ebola king Ron Klein, the incoming chief of staff, has no access to Anthony Fauci and federal health agencies, although they will have to find ways to distribute at least two promising health vaccines made by Pfizer and Modern. .
This fuels the already fierce media criticism of Trump’s insistence on contesting the race.
“Since the Biden election was called,” the Washington Post said, “Trump has spent the last two weekends playing golf on his private course in Virginia. And he almost gave up trying to control the deadly coronavirus pandemic that killed more than 245,000 Americans and made millions more sick of his watch. Although he is on the verge of losing more than a quarter of a million Americans before leaving the White House, the president has not attended a coronavirus task force meeting for many months. “

The news in the New York Times reads: “President Trump’s refusal to recognize the election has entered a more dangerous phase as it provokes resistance and unrest among his supporters and spreads lies aimed at undermining the integrity of the American voting system.”
As for the aforementioned president, he returned to Twitter yesterday, saying that the “Radical Left Democrats” were working with the “Fake News Media” to try to “STOLE this election.” But he found time for a post in Covid-19:
“Unfortunately, European countries are recovering from the Chinese virus. Fake news doesn’t like to report it! “
The world is getting dirty, especially America, so it would make sense for Trump’s and Biden’s teams to work together, regardless of who the current president thinks has actually “won.”
