Donald Trump, at least publicly, continues to deny the fact on Twitter, claiming that those who lost to Biden “will win” despite the official change.
His social media account was flooded overnight with allegations of US election conspiracies and complaints of coronaviruses and the political left. He also announced that he had pardoned his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who had lied to the FBI during a Russian investigation.
Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi called the amnesty a “misuse of power.”
Meanwhile, Joe Biden, using a live-broadcast Thanksgiving address to demand unity, told Americans: “We need to remember that we are not fighting each other, we are fighting the virus, not each other. “
Trump’s ‘zombie’ election strategy
Republicans allied with Donald Trump are allowing the false claims of his zombie campaign to continue because they are afraid to remove their political base, experts say.
Despite dozens of legal and procedural setbacks, Mr. Trump’s team continues to file new challenges that have no prospect of success and fresh, unfounded claims of fraud.
The president’s character claims are affecting the country with suspicion, although the winner was clear and no evidence of public voter fraud has been found.
“Zombies are dead people who walk alive – that’s the case,” said Forita Tolson, a professor at the University of Southern Thorne California Gold School of Law. “In the case of litigation that could change the election, all of these cases are actually dead men.”
Thomas Mann, a senior resident scholar at the Institute of Government Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, adds: “This is truly a form of civilized coup.
“It could end soon if the Republican Party acknowledges what is happening. But they face a connection to the Trump base.”

The Trump administration has called for the expulsion of immigrant children
The U.S. government on Wednesday appealed a judge’s order barring immigrant children from crossing the border, which is part of a policy to deny asylum to children during the coronavirus epidemic.
Judge Emmet Sullivan issued a preliminary injunction on November 18 seeking a ban on the deportation of unaccounted children by immigration lawyers under public health laws.
The Justice Department filed a notice of appeal Wednesday night in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. It also asked Judge Sullivan to stay the pending appeal, which he had previously denied.
Since March, border agents have referred 200,000 migrant adults and children to the cause of the epidemic and the need to stop the spread of the virus, although Kovid-19 is spreading widely in border communities and across the country.
Judge Sullivan’s order only included children who crossed the border without parents, not adults or parents and children. At least 8,800 unaccompanied children have been deported without seeking asylum or the opportunity to speak to a lawyer. Most people get sick within hours or days. However, the Trump administration detained hundreds of children in hotels near the US-Mexico border for days or weeks at a time until another judge stopped the practice.
Joe Biden has said that when he takes office in January, he will reverse many of Donald Trump’s immigration programs. Mr Biden did not say whether he would stop the deportation.
