Quote:
The president of the United States has just now again baselessly asserted on Twitter that “Tens of thousands of votes were illegally received after 8 P.M. on Tuesday, Election Day, totally and easily changing the results in Pennsylvania and certain other razor thin states.”

It is boring writing it, you may be bored reading it, but I cannot stress enough that this is simply not true.

Mail-in and absentee votes that arrive after the end of polling on election day have been valid, legal and counted in various states for decades.

It certainly feels like it.

To clarify, President Trump’s press conference will NOT be held at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia.
It will be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping— no relation with the hotel.

JOE BIDEN DEFEATS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

The Associated Press declares Joe Biden the winner of a grueling campaign for the American presidency. He will lead a polarized nation through a historic collision of health, economic and social crises.

I await Donald Trump's next outburst with trepidation and interest.

A bottle of Sauvignon Blanc is waiting in the fridge.

I will definitely be enjoying a glass tonight.

Not least because dealing with Biden over Brexit deals and Irish border issues will be a far tougher prospect for Johnson than he was facing with Trump and may even force him to consider changing course.
