He will have spent more time golfing than at the White House at the end of the presidential election. Donald Trump visited his club in Sterling (Virginia), near Washington, for the second day in a row on Sunday after the announcement of his loss to Joe Biden in the US presidential election.
A fierce golfer, the Republican president was already on the greens the day before, when the American media announced that Joe Biden’s lead could no longer be caught and that the Democratic candidate thus became the president-elect of the United States in the outcome of the November 3 election.
In private, according to CNN, the president’s wife, Melania Trump, is among those around him trying to convince him to accept defeat. Sayings that contrast with the last tweet of the First Lady affirming that “the American people deserve fair elections. Every legal – and not illegal – vote must be taken into account. We must protect our democracy with the utmost transparency. “
Donald Trump, for his part, has still not recognized his defeat and says, without concrete evidence to support it, that the election is tainted with irregularities. “We think these people are thieves. The great machines of the city are corrupt. This election was stolen, ”he insisted on Twitter this Sunday.
Donald Trump cries out “fraud”
“Britain’s top pollster wrote this morning […] that it was impossible for Biden to do better than Obama in some of these states (the states where he lost, editor’s note), ”continues the occupant of the White House.
“We see many affidavits claiming that there was vote fraud. We have, in this country, a past of election problems, ”assures Donald Trump in another tweet. Most of his messages on Twitter have also been reported as “disputed” by the social network.
Long before Joe Biden’s victory, Donald Trump had already denounced – without being able to prove it – massive fraud in this election, in particular through postal votes, the share of which was considerable for this election of 2020 – and which have often benefited his rival Joe Biden.
Crowds in joy in the street
On the journey from the White House to Sterling, Donald Trump could see Americans waving hostile signs as his procession passed.
The day before, cheerful crowds had taken to the streets of major American cities to celebrate his defeat. On social networks, many images showed masked citizens dancing for the victory of Joe Biden, from New York to Los Angeles, via Atlanta or Chicago.
Joe Biden, for his part, went to church Sunday morning in his town of Wilmington (Delaware). A practicing Catholic, he regularly attends mass.
