Donald Trump has vowed to continue his battle to overturn the apparent win-win election result for Joe Biden, after a series of false theories about fraud during his first TV interview since the November 3 vote.
The president returned to the White House on Sunday after spending the weekend at Camp David, speaking to Fox News on the phone and pledging to allocate “125 percent” of his energy to finding a path to winning another four years. “My mind will not change in six months,” he said.
Overnight, Mr. Biden appointed an all-female team to manage the administration’s upcoming communications process, while also receiving treatment for a hairline fracture in his foot after an ankle sprain while playing with his dogs.
Trump meeting ‘ended abruptly due to COVID-19 case’
Trump had another problem with the Corona virus, according to a report by the Associated Press, citing a source as saying that the president had a meeting with the Pennsylvania state senator who suddenly left the West Wing meeting after being informed of his illness. .
Doug Mastriano, a Republican senator, was told that White House medical personnel would take care of him and his son and his son’s friend, who were also there for the Oval Office meeting and tested positive for the virus. The meeting continued after he left.
Trump himself contracted the virus during the election campaign in October, and his son, Don Junior, was confirmed two weeks ago.
Positive coronavirus cases are on the rise across the United States, and Dr. Anthony Fauci said the country could see a “further spike” in the coming weeks.
Every person in close proximity to the president should get a rapid coronavirus test.
All participants at Wednesday’s meeting took Covid tests, but positive results were not announced until they arrived at the West Wing of the White House.

Trump wishes Biden all the best after an ankle injury
Trump wished Biden a speedy recovery on Sunday after the president-elect fractured a hairline in his foot while playing with one of his dogs.
His personal doctor said Biden will likely have to wear protective shoes for several weeks.
The 78-year-old Democrat wrapped his ankle on Saturday and one day later visited an orthopedist for an X-ray and a CT scan.
Doctors initially thought the former vice president had only sprained his ankle, but they ordered additional scanning for the injury.

‘No way we’ve lost’
After a fierce defense of his right to stay in the White House in January via Fox News, Trump showed no signs of backing down late Sunday evening, tweeting: “I led this great mission, and am I the only one who lost?” No, it doesn’t work that way. It was a massive fraud, rigorous election! ”
The president’s last tweet before bed came simply: “We have not lost this election in any way!”

‘Massive fraud, the FBI is missing in action’

The president claimed that there was “massive fraud” and promised that he would not be convinced otherwise, even after the Electoral College issues its ruling next month.
The president also said that the FBI was “missing in action” when it came to its unproven allegations of election fraud.
