    No, he'll take the vaccines, but certainly question any "logistics" anybody in the Trump administration has developed. He'd be nuts not to, since ALL vaccinations will be taking place post inauguration...

    If he's able to salvage anything from that and make it work, so much the better....

    Obviously, there's no current major economic recovery, so stopping it can't be an issue.

    The only gift I want from Trump is his on-time departure...

    No.

    Not at all.

    If fewer people had died than expected, Trump would have had his second term.

    But that's not what happened.

    Instead of being a crisis in which the President appeared to be a true leader, COVID became a national tragedy.

    Instead of being a leader, Trump lied to the people, did everything he could to minimize the threat and threw the advice of the scientists into the garbage.

    That's one of the reasons he got punished by voters.

    You forgot to add that the sky will fall. Like it was about to fall in the first Obama term and then the second Obama term. Weird, last I checked the sky was still up there.

    Trump did virtually nothing and nothing good for the country so I do not want to hear and fairly tails aboit Trump's " accomplishments". Hell Trump even tried to take credit for the Veterans Choice program implemented under Obama. I gave him credit for the Space Force creation. He started a tariff war that amounts to a tax on US consumers. You know all of the other bad stuff, right!

    looks like fraud in Florida found... ok, maybe not officially fraud, but unethical as can be

    https://www.cnn.com/videos/business/2020/11/23/florida-dark-money-mystery-griffin-pkg-ac360-vpx.cnn

    "The campaign of a spoiler candidate appeared to help a Republican win a Florida Senate seat by 32 votes. Although the ghost candidate was billed as a liberal, a group of Republicans was supporting him behind the scenes. Drew Griffin reports."

    course Trump tried to do something similar for the Presidency too, so nothing new for Republicans to try and cheat

    I think it should be illegal what they are doing

    Massive Republican CHEATING.

    (Most likely financed by Dark Money (with Trump's Blessing)).

    Why does the GOP Always Feel the need to CHEAT To Win in Florida?:smh:

    What failures? With 3 COVID vaccines on the way, and 2 more currently still in their last stages of development, it looks like Trump will be passing Biden the only successful Pandemic Playbook in U.S. history. Obama seemed to have lost his after he used up all of the resources to fight off the Ebola Hoax of 2014.

    True but I think most Republicans will avoid turning directly against him immediately. They still need his base to get elected.
    The longer he floats the ideas of running in 2024 the more it will hurt other candidates.

    What fake information BS are you spewing now? Hillary congratulated Trump on his win and conceded the day after the election!

    We have more dead per capita than any other developed nation and most underdeveloped nations as well. If you stacked all of the dead bodies resulting from trump's lies, it would be a stack of coffins almost 100 miles high.

    And you call that a success? Trump is the greatest mass murderer in US history. And he admitted it on tape. The US is the Covid shthole of the world and it is ALL trump's doing.

    He has likely killed more Americans than Hitler did.

    ROFL ...
    Now you seriously want to say that the vaccines are Donald Trump's personal success ???
    Have you forgotten how reluctantly he freed up funds for it and only did it when his denial of the pandemic no longer worked? Seriously now?

    And question ... how many Ebola deaths were there under Obama in the US, eh? None!
    But Donald Dumbass accused Obama of playing golf at the time instead of devoting himself to the problem as US President. Again, total ignorance and dementia among the Trumponians when it comes to playing golf from Trump during Corona!

    How can anyone be as hypocritical as Trump's supporters are ...

    Ebola hoax?! Are you for real?
    https://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/history/2014-2016-outbreak/index.html

    I guess you think Corona isn't real either. Or that men didn't walk on the Moon.

    Get your *ss on a rocket and see the evidence.

    Or go an visit the graves of people killed by a disease that typically starts with a fever, sore throat, muscular pain, and headaches, followed by vomiting, diarrhoea and rash usually along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys, combined with internal and external bleeding....

    That's Ebola, for your information. I will spare you the symptoms of Corona. Unless you want to know how it feels not being able to breath.

    I hope you will never catch either.

    Or that others will catch your disease of utter ignorance.

    He may still be. He's not conceded or even stopped his lawsuits

    He has conceded, as evidenced by his tweet yesterday. Probably not written by him because where, EVER, have you heard Trump utter the phrase; In the best interest of our country?

    I'm still stunned a tweet from Trump contains a line like that.

    It's almost, well... normal!

    Cool. The GSA lady was getting threatened and harassed, so they let Biden have a stapler and folding chair to put in his pretend office.

    He’s preparing for moving into the WH in January. Get ready for it.

    POTUS is often called the most powerful man in the world. It is the biggest job. In my company, when we know someone is leaving we try to have a transition. New person in place several weeks or even a couple of months before the departing person actually leaves. It’s important for the smooth running of the company. If that is the case for roles several levels below the CEO of a medium sized company, it is definitely the case for POTUS.

    I am aware that the anti-Trump movement within the GOP will not fall into place immediately.

    But it will.

    And if Trump wants to run again in 2024, there will be strong conservative opposition against him.

    Agreed. But he will maintain enough support from his cult-like base to damage the prospects of anyone who runs against him.
