day after Biden:

    The White House on Tuesday declined to defend Dr. Seuss after President Joe Biden left the children's author out of a proclamation celebrating Read Across America Day. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the day is 'a chance to celebrate diverse authors whose work and lived experience reflect the diversity of our country.' Her comments come after Biden omitted Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day, which is held annually on the children's author's birthday on March 2.  But now six of his children's books will no longer be published because of racist and insensitive imagery, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the company that preserves and protects the author's legacy, announced Tuesday.  Biden broke presidential tradition when he left out any mention of Dr. Seuss during his proclamation. Both former presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump have recognized Dr. Seuss' contributions several times in their proclamations each year.  Psaki said the Education Department wrote...
    JOE Biden has skipped a tradition and not mentioned Dr Seuss in his Read Across America Day proclamation after "racism" claims. This comes after Loudoun County Public School District in Virginia removed Dr Seuss from its Read Across America Day celebration, claiming that the legendary author's books had racial "undertones." 5Biden did not mention Dr Seuss in his Read Across America declarationCredit: Splash News 5There have been recent claims that Dr Seuss's books have racial 'undertones'Credit: Getty - Contributor Read Across America Day is held on March 2, which is also Seuss's birthday, and is meant to encourage children to get into reading. In Biden's proclamation declaring Tuesday Read Across America Day, he made no mention of Seuss - even though his predecessors Donald Trump and Barack Obama both mentioned the author in their own declarations. The White House hasn't commented specifically on why the president chose not to mention...
    The press pool covering Vice President Harris was sent home on Wednesday morning after an unidentified reporter tested positive for COVID-19. The reporter was tested, as most people entering the White House are, at a site off of Lafayette Square, according to McClatchy White House correspondent Michael Wilner, who was serving as the print representative in the pool. Typically, Wilner said, reporters who are scheduled to be in the White House on a given day are tested before entering, and upon receiving a negative result, are given wristbands allowing them to come and go throughout the day. Each day’s print representative is responsible for writing public notes about the day's events.

    President Joe Biden will unveil his immigration plan on Thursday, a proposal that offers one of the fastest pathways to citizenship of any measure in recent years.  However, the plan doesn't contain any details on enhanced border security, which past measures have included as a way to win Republican votes. Congressional Democrats will release the legislation Thursday on Capitol Hill. And, although their party controls Congress, with a 50-50 tie in the Senate it will be a tough slog for Biden's plan, which will provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. President Joe Biden will unveil his immigration plan on Thursday, a proposal that offers one of the fastest pathways to citizenship of any measure in recent years At his town hall meeting with CNN on Tuesday, Biden made a gaffe when he said most of those on his fast-track to citizenship are...
    National Review The Dishonesty of Biden’s COVID Messaging After a campaign in which Joe Biden expressed supreme confidence that he could bring an end to, or at least substantially curb the damage wrought by, the coronavirus pandemic, his administration’s handling of the pandemic has left much to be desired. Rewind back to last fall. Biden was giving speeches about how while he trusted vaccines in general, he didn’t trust Donald Trump, and was thus skeptical of the coronavirus vaccines in particular. Biden’s running mate, then-senator Kamala Harris, said that she’d be hesitant to take a vaccine that came out during Trump’s term. When pressed about whether she would do so if Dr. Anthony Fauci and other reputable health authorities endorsed it, she doubled down: “They’ll be muzzled; they’ll be suppressed.” By December, it was clear that the vaccines were in fact on the brink of FDA approval, and that by...
    President Joe Biden on Monday wrapped up his visit to Camp David with wife Jill and other family members, after spending the weekend celebrating Valentine's Day and playing Mario Kart. The president and first lady hopped a short, 28-minute flight from Hagerstown, Maryland, to Joint Base Andrews after spending the long holiday weekend at the presidential retreat in the hills of Catoctin Mountain Park, in Frederick County, Maryland.  President Joe Biden decked out in presidential gear - Air Force One aviator jacket with his name on it and a Camp David cap Biden was decked out in presidential gear for the trip, wearing a brown aviator jacket with the Air Force One Seal on one side and a name plate reading 'Joe Biden Commander in Chief' on the other.  He also wore a hat given to him by his grandchildren. The front side of the brown baseball cap says 'Presidential...
    Joe Biden has called Jill the 'love of his life' in a soppy Valentine's Day tweet after spending Presidents' Day weekend playing Mario Kart with his grandchildren at Camp David. The 78-year-old posted a picture of himself with his arms around his wife at last month's inauguration, writing: 'The love of my life and the life of my love. Happy Valentine's Day, Jilly.' The couple, who have been married for 44 years, spent the holiday weekend at the president's country retreat in Maryland, to 'just hang out with the family and do what we always do,' Biden told reporters. His granddaughter Naomi, one of Hunter's children, posted several pictures on social media, including Biden wearing a new baseball cap and playing Mario Kart. 'We bought him some swag since it's Presidents' Day weekend and he's "literally" President,' the 26-year-old law graduate wrote on Twitter.   She also posted a clip to...
    A South Dakota hotel owner told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday that she prays everything will be OK following President Biden’s move to halt the Keystone XL oil pipeline project.  Stroppel Hotel owner Laurie Cox says she opened her hotel in Midland, S.D., recently to cater to oil and gas workers there, but following President Biden’s move, she worries about her business. Cox told host Steve Doocy that she had a "real deep, dark feeling" on Inauguration Day. Doocy noted that earlier in the day her hotel, which he pointed out has been around since the 1930s, was sold out and filled with people from all over the country who were staying there because they were working on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Cox said when she saw President Biden start to sign some executive orders, "I was like, ‘Oh, please, please don't let it be the Keystone.’" She noted...
    HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A federal judge on Tuesday, Jan. 26, barred the U.S. government from enforcing a 100-day deportation moratorium that is a key immigration priority of President Joe Biden. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary restraining order sought by Texas, which sued on Friday, Jan. 22, against a Department of Homeland Security memo that instructed immigration agencies to pause most deportations. Tipton said the Biden administration had failed “to provide any concrete, reasonable justification for a 100-day pause on deportations.” Tipton’s order is an early blow to the Biden administration, which has proposed far-reaching changes sought by immigration advocates, including a plan to legalize an estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. Biden promised during his campaign to pause most deportations for 100 days. The order represents a victory for Texas’ Republican leaders, who often sued to stop programs enacted by Biden’s Democratic predecessor, President...
    Former New York Times freelance editor Lauren Wolfe shot back at the paper's claim that she was not dismissed solely because of a pro-Joe Biden tweet last week, saying the Times was smearing her reputation. Wolfe, who came under fire for saying she had "chills" over Biden's plane landing the day before his inauguration, told the Washington Post that the tweet was the only reason she was dismissed. "Every day, I was scared I was going to do something wrong. So, whatever they’re implying, it’s a shot at my reputation, which I’ve worked very carefully to build," she told the Post's Erik Wemple.

    President Biden says he’s "quite confident" that in roughly three weeks the nation will "be vaccinating people at the range of a 1 million a day or in excess of that." The president, taking questions from reporters on Monday after an executive order signing, raised the bar on his pledge from the presidential campaign trail of achieving 100 million COVID-19 vaccinations in his first 100 days as president. Biden said he was hopeful "1.5 million a day, rather than 1 million a day" could be achieved in a couple of weeks. BIDEN'S 'NOTHING WE CAN DO' CORONAVIRUS COMMENTS STIR CONTROVERSY The president, speaking at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House, noted that "we’ve gotten commitments from some of the producers that they will in fact produce more vaccine in a relatively short period time and then continue that down the road." President Joe Biden answers...
    JOE Biden reportedly issued an order to "immediately release all" undocumented migrants in Texas custody, according to an email obtained by Fox News. The memo, from the Department of Homeland Security to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), was sent out after the new president signed an executive order on his first day in office calling for a 100-day pause in deportations, according to the outlet. 6Joe Biden signed several executive orders during his first few days as US PresidentCredit: Reuters 6The claims that Biden ordered all undocumented migrants in Texas to be released, were made on Tucker Carlson tonightCredit: Fox News "Tucker Carlson Tonight" has since obtained an internal email sent Thursday to ICE officers in Texas that shows how the order was enacted, according to reports.

    At the time of Joe Biden’s inauguration, return to John Fitzgerald Kennedy; the 35th President of the United States who was sworn in just 60 years ago. A political model for some, historians nevertheless strive to qualify the “Kennedy myth”. As Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States on Wednesday, one can’t help but compare them. Sixty years separate the nomination of Joe Biden from that of John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK). Both Democrats, both Catholics, both of Irish descent. The second will push the first to enter politics, the rest is written. But unlike Biden, Kennedy was not predestined for a career in politics. He who was moving towards journalism had to review his plans in the face of family ambitions.
    EXCLUSIVE – On Joe Biden's first day in office, the Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping directive calling for a 100-day pause in deportations.  "Tucker Carlson Tonight" has since obtained an internal email sent Thursday to ICE officers in Texas that shows how the order was enacted.  "As of midnight tonight, stop all removals," the email reads. "This includes Mexican bus runs, charter flights and commercial removals (until further notice) ... all cases are to be considered [no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future]." The email goes on to say: "Release them all, immediately. No sponsor available is not acceptable any longer." TUCKER CARLSON: BIDEN CANCELS KEYSTONE PIPELINE, OPENS THE BORDER AND SHOWS WHO HE REALLY IS The official who sent the email noted that he was just "the messenger" explaining the directive. In other words, It wasn't his idea. It was Joe Biden's. Now, this email was news to us. The memorandum...

    The New York Times canceled an editor’s contract after she accused the Trump administration of “pettiness” on Inauguration Day and tweeted about having “chills” when President Joe Biden’s plane landed, according to journalist Yashar Ali. The editor, Lauren Wolfe, allegedly tweeted and then deleted a tweet accusing former President Donald Trump’s administration of “not sending a military plane to bring” Biden to Washington, D.C. The tweet was deleted after Wolfe learned that Biden decided to take his own plane, according to Ali. Wolfe appeared to delete her Twitter account after backlash on social media. These comments mostly “came from conservatives,” Ali wrote. (RELATED: Editor Who Worked On Tom Cotton’s NYT ‘Send In The Troops’ Op-Ed Reportedly Resigns From Paper) 2.

    Chelsea Clinton has been ridiculed on Twitter after she revealed a highly observant comment made by her four-year-old son about Joe Biden's inauguration.  Clinton, the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton, said she told her son Aidan that 'it's the 21st day of the 21st year in the 21st century'.  Her son then quipped: 'Yeah, but it's cooler it's Joe Biden's first full day in the White House'.

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki started off her first full day by ducking the growing questions about the Biden’s administration’s vaccine rollout goal, and whether it is ambitious enough to address the Covid-19 pandemic. Near the end of Psaki’s Thursday press conference, Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller revisited a question that he had put to the president himself barely an hour earlier in the Oval Office. Noting that Biden’s goal of averaging one million Covid-19 daily doses for the first 100 days would essentially be self-fulfilling based on the current rate of vaccine administration, Miller pressed: “Shouldn’t we set the bar higher? That’s basically where the U.S. is right now.” To which Biden brushed off the reporter’s skepticism, in an exasperated reply: “When I announced it you all said it’s not possible,” he said. “Come on, give me a break, man. It’s a good start, 100 million.” As of Thursday morning,...

    WASHINGTON (CBS/AP) — Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States on Wednesday, declaring that “democracy has prevailed.” He swore the oath of office to take the helm of a deeply divided nation and inheriting a confluence of crises arguably greater than any faced by his predecessors. “We must end this uncivil war that pits red vs. blue, urban vs. rural, and conservative vs. liberal,” President Biden said during his inaugural address. Biden’s inauguration came at a time of national tumult and uncertainty, a ceremony of resilience as the hallowed American democratic rite unfurled at a U.S. Capitol battered by an insurrectionist siege just two weeks ago. “We must reject the culture in which facts themselves are manipulated and even manufactured,” Biden said. “My fellow Americans, we have to be different than this, America has to be better than this, and I believe America is so much better...
    The field of flags on the National Mall in preparation for the pandemic-era inauguration. Take a deep breath: It is the last full day of Donald Trump’s time in office. Trump’s entire official schedule for the day is, as it has been for weeks, “President Trump will work from early in the morning until late in the evening. He will make many calls and have many meetings.” But on this day, Trump is reportedly planning up to 100 pardons and commutations while he still can—though at least as of now, he’s seen as unlikely to try to pardon himself or his adult offspring. Trump also recorded a farewell video on Monday, so we have that to look forward to. Will it be attempting-to-seem-presidential Trump or aggrieved Trump or an unholy blend of the two? But the transition to better things continues, with President-elect Joe Biden arriving in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, where he’ll spend Tuesday night...

    Several accounts from the Biden camp will then take over those usernames. Twitter will convert @Transition46 to @WhiteHouse, @PresElectBiden to @POTUS and so on. One username that won’t make the transition is @SecondLady. Instead, Harris’ husband, Douglas Emhoff, will use an account called @SecondGentleman. Twitter will archive @SecondLady as @SecondLady45, and the current handle won’t be in use for the time being. Unlike the 2017 transition, the new versions of those institutional handles won’t automatically hang on to their existing followers. If you follow any of those accounts, or the Biden camp ones that will be converted, you’ll see alerts and prompts about the switch, along with the option to follow the new versions.  Live streams of the inauguration ceremony will be available through Twitter’s US Elections Hub, as well as the @JCCIC and @BidenInaugural accounts. The hub will include lists, moments and recommendations of accounts to follow.
    Donald Trump will not fly to Scotland to play golf ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration - after Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon vowed to ban him from entering the country due to Covid rules.  There has been mounting speculation that the US president would visit his Turnberry golf resort in South Ayrshire to avoid seeing Mr Biden being sworn into office on January 20. Prestwick Airport - which is situated near to the golf course - was told to expect the arrival of a US military Boeing 757 on January 19. But it has now been revealed that Mr Trump will not be in Scotland at all.  It came after Ms Sturgeon stressed that non-essential travel in or out of Scotland is illegal under the country's strict coronavirus lockdown, adding: 'Coming to play golf is not what I would consider to be an essential purpose.'  Donald Trump (pictured playing golf in his Turnberry...
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced Thursday she will file articles of impeachment against President-elect Joe Biden one day after he is inaugurated. Greene said she is taking the action because of alleged business dealings Biden and his son Hunter Biden have had with the Chinese Communist Party and in the Ukraine. “We have to make sure that our leaders are held accountable, we cannot have a president of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments …  Chinese energy companies, Ukrainian energy companies,” she told Newsmax TV. “So on January 21, I will be filing articles of impeachment on Joe Biden.” Greene’s announcement came just hours after the House of Representatives impeached President Donald Trump for a second time, citing the attack on the U.S. Capitol. “On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of...

    President-elect Joe Biden hasn't been deterred from being sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol after last week's attack on Congress by Trump supporters. "I'm not afraid of taking the oath outside," Biden told reporters Monday in Delaware after receiving his second coronavirus vaccine. The incoming president confirmed his team had been briefed on security measures being taken for his inauguration on Jan. 20. His platform ceremony will take place exactly two weeks after Trump backers stormed the symbol of American democracy. Five people were killed in the chaos. During his brief remarks, Biden repeated it was "critically important" that there be "a real, serious focus" on bringing those involved to justice. He described them as "engaging in sedition," which endangered people's lives and destroyed public property. But he also referenced concerns that impeaching Trump would derail his efforts to broker another COVID-19 aid deal. He said...

Calling into a members-only breakfast on Thursday morning, the president apologized for missing the meeting, but insisted he wanted to speak. At one point, someone in the room reportedly yelled “we love you” as the president spoke. At no point, according to the Post’s report, did Trump mention the events of Wednesday, when a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in an effort to disrupt the congressional certification of the Electoral College vote.

    CNN’s Kaitlin Collins reported a new statement from President Donald Trump just minutes after President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory was certified by Congress — and presided over by Trump’s vice president, Mike Pence. In the statement, Trump once again reiterated his disbelief in the reality of Biden’s resounding, and now official, win in the 2020 election and falsely claimed evidence supports his many election fraud conspiracy theories. But he also came as close to a concession as he has offered so far, saying: “There will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I’ve always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. And while this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to make America great again.” At no point previously, has Trump so directly and firmly acknowledged that his administration will come to an end on Inauguration Day,...
    The process began at 1 p.m., when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell convened a joint session of the House and Senate to certify the states Electoral College results and affirm Joe Bidens status as victor of the Nov. 3 vote. In recent years when these have occurred, the process took all of 20 to 40 minutes.  But this time around, it took xx hours to get to the result: Biden 306, Trump 232. The differences were twofold: For one, lawmakers had to allow for challenges to some states electoral tallies. Urged on by President Donald Trumps weeklong effort to discredit the election as a result of massive election fraud, many Republican senators and congressmen were disputing Bidens win in multiple battleground states. Each time an objection had the support of at least one senator and one representative, the two chambers had to break into separate sessions for two hours of...
    Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Wednesday night that she was extending the district's public emergency declaration for 15 days — a span that will end the day after President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. "Today, First Amendment protests turned violent," Bowser said in a statement. "Many persons came to the District armed and for the purpose of engaging in violence and destruction and have engaged in violence and destruction. They have fired chemical irritants, bricks, bottles, and guns. They have breached the security of the Capitol and their destructive and riotous behavior has the potential to spread beyond the Capitol. Their motivation is ongoing."

    President Donald Trump lashed out at President-elect Joe Biden, raged about the election and demanded $2,000 stimulus checks ahead of his sixth day on the golf course Wednesday. The president started out his morning at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., with a series of furious tweets repeating his false claim he won the election and mocking Barack Obama for coming second to himself in Gallup's poll of the most admired man of the year. Trump has spent six out of seven days at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach since he arrived in Florida last week to spend the holidays at the Winter White House with his family. The president started his morning tweet storm with a dig at his predecessor, referring to Gallup's most admired man of 2020 survey, which Trump won with 18 per cent.

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will formally choose its new chair the day after President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated.

RNC CHAIR MCDANIEL ALL BUT CERTAIN TO WIN ANOTHER TERM STEERING THE NATIONAL PARTY At the top of the agenda at the confab will be electing the national party’s new leadership. Outgoing DNC Chair Tom Perez long ago said he would not bid to serve another four-year term. While DNC committee members will vote for the chair, the real decision maker in the process is Biden, who now as president-elect is leader of the Democratic Party. "It’s ultimately President Biden’s choice," longtime New Hampshire Democratic Party chair and former DNC vice chair Ray Buckley told Fox News. Biden – at least publicly – has...
    DONALD Trump is supposedly tired of his job after losing to Joe Biden in the election.

    The Pentagon is postponing one day of meetings with the Biden transition team until after the holidays, in order to focus on Operation Warp Speed and other priorities, according to senior defense officials. Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller released a statement Friday morning noting the postponement was “mutually-agreed upon”: Our key focus in the next two weeks is supporting essential requests for information on OWS and COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] information to guarantee a flawless transition.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany suggested that, despite the Electoral College confirming President-elect Joe Biden on Monday, there could be a “continuation of power” of a second term for the Trump administration. The comment came in the first press briefing in roughly two weeks, and the first since President Donald Trump officially lost the Electoral College vote. Trump and his senior advisors have refused to concede that the election has, in fact, been lost. McEnany referred all questions about further legal recourse to the Trump campaign and often claimed that she had not yet spoken to the president about the topic of his baseless allegations. In a question focused on Biden’s cabinet pics, an unidentified reporter noted that President Trump had the benefit of the U.S. Senate starting hearings and starting the process before he was inaugurated in January 2017. “Does the president oppose the Senate taking up...
    By LLAZAR SEMINI, Associated Press TIRANA, Albania (AP) — Albanian demonstrators on Sunday kept up their daily protests over the fatal shooting of a man by police enforcing a coronavirus curfew. The rally started peacefully from the capital Tirana’s Skanderbeg Square to the main government building of Prime Minister Edi Rama, with protesters chanting “No justice, no calmness!” and “Justice for Klodian!” Demonstrators asked for the resignation of the police chief and the release of those who have been arrested in days of clashes with police. Later some hurled stones at the Tirana police station, where police responded with tear gas and water cannons. Smaller protests were held in other cities. Albanians have defied a coronavirus ban on public gatherings and have clashed with police in recent days after Klodian Rasha was killed in Tirana amid a curfew early Tuesday. Police say he ignored officers’ calls to stop and ran...
    President Donald Trump has lashed out after the Supreme Court refused to hear the lawsuit spearheaded by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that sought to invalidate the election results in four other states. The Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear the lawsuit to overturn Joe Biden's election victory, ending an attempt to argue legal issues that were rejected by state and federal judges before the nation´s highest court.   Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said they would have heard the case but that they would have refused to overturn the election result. The other seven justices declined to hear the case, ending the legal bid. 'This is a great and disgraceful miscarriage of justice.

    Donald Trump is continuing to rage against the outcome of the presidential election, claiming his competitor Joe Biden received a suspicious 'dump of votes' in Wisconsin after polling booths had closed.  The Commander-in-chief is contesting the outcome in crucial swing state, which went to Biden by a slender 0.62 percent margin (20, 565 votes).  'Look at this in Wisconsin! A day AFTER the election, Biden receives a dump of 143,379 votes at 3:42AM, when they learned he was losing badly. This is unbelievable!' Trump raged in a tweet posted Wednesday evening.  The President then attached a graph which showed the huge bounce in Biden votes coming in early on the morning of Wednesday, November 4.  While Trump did not cite the original source of his graph, various news outlet confirm that Biden did amass a huge number of votes to his tally at that time - but not because of...

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images President Donald Trump, amidst yet another baseless claim about an election so rigged it was supposedly stolen from him, tried to clean up an earlier tweet of his Sunday morning saying, of Joe Biden, “He won.” “He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!” Trump tweeted. The “he won” part dominated social media this morning, given how Trump had yet to formally concede that he lost the election: "He won" — President Trump acknowledged Joe Bidens election win for the first time on Sunday, but continued to falsely insist the former vice presidents victory was the result of a "rigged" election. https://t.co/1cC8xiJXzQ — The New York...
    Reuters November 13, 2020 0 Comments With cities and states across the United States reimposing restrictions to tame alarming surges in coronavirus infections and hospitalizations, a senior adviser to President-elect Joe Biden said on Friday there were no plans for nationwide lockdowns next year. Chicago this week urged residents to stay at home and shun visitors for the next 30 days, which includes the Thanksgiving holiday in late November. New Yorkers will find restaurants closing at 10 p.m. beginning on Friday, and classroom instruction in schools may soon shut down again entirely. Detroit’s public school district suspended in-person learning starting on Friday, telling students to expect to attend online classes at home until at least Jan. 11. Some version of this patchwork of localized measures is likely to stay in place after Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Thursday issued a stay-at-home 'advisory' and put a 10-person limit on social gatherings in the city amid a spike in COVID-19 cases. Lightfoot implored Chicagoans to 'cancel the normal Thanksgiving plans', and warned 1,000 more people in the city could die of the virus by the end of the year if action is not taken.  On Saturday she was seen among the crowds celebrating Joe Biden's election win. She used a bullhorn to address the dozens of people surrounding her, sharing the footage to her Twitter page.  A month ago, Chicago was reporting 500 daily cases on average. Now, the city is averaging roughly 1,900 daily cases.

    President Donald Trump tweeted out a video Wednesday of a woman in California questioning workers emptying a mail-in ballot box, as she inquired why the deep blue state 'already called' the winner there if they are still collecting ballots. 'You are looking at BALLOTS! Is this what our Country has come to?' Trump posted to his Twitter. In the video posted along with the tweet, a woman is filming two men emptying a full mail-in ballot box and asking them questions. 'Are those ballots,' the woman asked, to which one of the men replied, 'Yeah.' 'I thought they collected them all, I just want to document,' she said in explaining why she was filing and asking them questions. Trump and his aides and allies have encouraged his supporters to document and provide proof of potential voter fraud and irregularities – especially in terms of mail-in ballots.

    Pennsylvania’s top election official said that around 10,000 ballots were received between Election Day and Nov. 6 – a total too small to alter President-elect Joe Biden’s margin of victory in the swing state, according to a report.

    WASHINGTON — The White House called it a day at 3.59 p.m. on Saturday after President Trump spent the morning playing golf and refusing to concede the White House to President-elect Joe Biden. Trump’s re-election campaign hammered Biden for calling early-morning lids during the 2020 presidential race, suggesting that the former veep wasn’t up for the task of running the country. But with the nation waiting to hear from their president, the White House called a travel/photo lid of its own just before 4 p.m. “Calling a lid” is when a campaign or candidate indicates to the press that they will not be holding any more events for the day. Trump spent the first day of his lame duck presidency in the links of his Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Va., where he was presumably confronted with the news of his loss. He was photographed looking stone-faced upon...
    CBS News' projection that Joe Biden has won the presidency comes 48 years to the day after he first won election to the Senate on November 7, 1972. Biden was just 29 years old when he won his seat in Delaware, and would serve for 36 years. Just over a month after his 1972 victory, Biden's wife and infant daughter were tragically killed in a car crash that also hospitalized his two sons, Beau and Hunter.  In this January 5, 1973 file photo, 4-year-old Beau Biden, foreground, plays near his father, Joe Biden, as he's sworn in as U.S. senator from Delaware in a Wilmington hospital.

"In President-elect Joe Biden, Americans elected a leader ready on Day One to finally begin to crush the coronavirus so we can safely reopen our economy and schools," the speaker said. "In President-elect Biden, the American people delivered a mandate for lower health costs, a mandate for creating bigger paychecks by rebuilding America's infrastructure, and a mandate for cleaner government that works for the public interest, not the special interests." “And in President-elect Biden, they have elected a unifier who values faith, family and community, and who will work tirelessly to heal our nation,” she continued. Pelosi’s statement follows her announcement that she will run again for the House speakership, despite losing ground in the House but maintaining the Democrats’ majority. As of 2...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has ordered county elections officials in Pennsylvania to keep separate mail-in ballots that arrived after Election Day. The state’s top elections official already had ordered those ballots be kept apart. The order came Friday night in response to a plea from the state Republican Party as Democrat Joe Biden inched ahead of President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania in the presidential race. Alito, acting on his own, said he was motivated in part by the Republicans’ assertion that they can’t be sure elections officials are complying with guidance issued by Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat. The justice handles emergency appeals from Pennsylvania. He ordered a response from the state by Saturday afternoon and said he has referred the matter to the full court for further action. The order is related to an ongoing Republican appeal to the Supreme Court to...
    The U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, November 5, 2020.Erin Scott | Reuters The Republican Party of Pennsylvania on Friday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt an ongoing count of mail-in ballots received in that state after Election Day, a move that came hours after Democratic nominee Joe Biden overtook President Donald Trump in the vote tally there. The party is asking the Supreme Court to order the Pennsylvania secretary of state to log and segregate those ballots, but to take no other action on them, including counting them. The GOP is seeking to overturn an extension of the Election Day deadline for the receipt of mail-in ballots that was granted by the Pennsylania Supreme Court. This is breaking news.

    As his re-election prospects seem to be slipping away, reports are emerging about how President Donald Trump responded to what seems to be a pending loss.  The New York Times is reporting that it was the decision Tuesday night by his beloved Fox News network to project former Vice President Joe Biden as the winner in Arizona that set off a sense of despondency inside the White House.  President Donald Trump speaks in the White House briefing room Thursday.

    By JONATHAN LEMIRE, ZEKE MILLER and WILL WEISSERT WASHINGTON (AP) — Election officials in key battlegrounds pressed forward Thursday with presidential vote counting as Democrat Joe Biden urged patience and President Donald Trump pursued legal options, insisting the processing of ballots should be stopped. The president spent Thursday at the White House, working the phones and escalating efforts to sow doubt about the outcome of the race. In a series of tweets, he pushed baseless allegations of electoral misconduct and said the ongoing vote count of ballots submitted before and on Election Day should cease. Trump followed up with an all-caps official campaign statement. “IF YOU COUNT THE LEGAL VOTES, I EASILY WIN THE ELECTION! IF YOU COUNT THE ILLEGAL AND LATE VOTES, THEY CAN STEAL THE ELECTION FROM US!” he contended. Biden, meanwhile, sought to project the appearance of a president, attending a COVID-19 briefing on Thursday. He offered...
    Election Day may be over, but the election remains far from it. As of today, Democratic nominee Joe Biden seems to be in good shape to secure a pathway to the White House. According to the Associated Press, the former vice president has 264 electoral votes, meaning he needs six more to reach the 270 needed to win. President Trump has 214 despite prematurely claiming several battleground states that have not finalized their vote totals. With legal fights already shaping up to take place, elections officials scrambling to finish the job in several states, and pollsters fumbling their predictions for several congressional races, Washington may look a lot different than expected in the coming year. The Washington Examiner's Susan Ferrechio, chief congressional correspondent, and David Drucker, senior political correspondent, teamed up with George Washington University on Thursday to discuss the road ahead after the 2020 election. The two were joined...
    The past 24 hours has been dominated by a lot of wild speculation over the results of the 2020 election thus far, including fury from Team Trump at Fox News for its Decision Desk calling Arizona for Joe Biden. People on the president’s team have openly blasted Fox, called on them to retract the claim, and insist that the president still has a fighting chance. For the second day in a row, Fox News brought Arnon Mishkin — head of its Decision Desk — on air to defend the Arizona call. Asked by Bret Baier if they would rescind the call, Mishkin said they are definitely not. He said while additional votes are being counted, “we do not believe that this will change the tenor or the texture of the race, and we strongly believe that our call will stand, and that’s why we’re not pulling back the call.” Mishkin...
    Getty Trump As the presidential election results remained unclear with the states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania being closely watched, President Donald Trump took to Twitter with a spelling-error laden tweet. “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Poles are closed!” Trump wrote just before 1 a.m. on November 4. He meant “polls.” Trump then deleted the tweet with the spelling error, and tweeted it with the correct spelling. ‌ Twitter put this disclaimer on Trump’s tweet: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.” For his part, Joe Biden wrote, “Keep the faith, guys. We’re gonna win this.” Here’s what you need to know:Trump’s Tweets Came as Dispute Raged Over...

    Hillary Clinton resurfaced some of her own tweets this Election Day – messages she originally shared the morning after her 2016 presidential loss to Donald Trump. In one, the former secretary of state and failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee wrote, “Do not lose heart… (Vote.)” The new caption came on a smiling photo of herself that she tweeted on Nov. 9, 2016, after losing to President Trump, then the Republican candidate for president. “Scripture tells us: Let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season, we shall reap, if we do not lose heart,” she wrote in 2016.

    It would appears Scott Atlas’ regret for doing an interview with RT did not dissuade Rudy Giuliani from giving his own interview to the Russian state-owned propaganda outlet — on Election Day, no less. The personal lawyer to President Donald Trump used the interview to blast; the media — which he called “an arm of the Democratic Party” — “maniacally anti-Trump” censorship by tech companies, and his claims pertaining to Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Giuliani believes that, should Biden win the presidency, the Democratic Party will immediately work to force him out of office. “The Democrat Party has plans for Joe Biden. There is no question,” he said. Giuliani’s interview comes days after Dr. Atlas, one of the most influential people Trump’s White House coronavirus task force, used an interview with RT to blast lockdown policies as an “epic failure of public policy.” He also advanced other...
    Reuters November 3, 2020 0 Comments Americans headed to the polls on Tuesday to choose either incumbent Donald Trump or challenger Joe Biden as their next president, after a tumultuous four years under the businessman-turned-politician that have left the country as deeply divided as at any time in recent history. Biden, the Democratic former vice president and a career politician, has had a strong and consistent lead in national polls. But the Republican Trump is close in enough swing states to possibly piece together the 270 state-by-state Electoral College votes needed to hold on to the presidency, which he won in a surprise 2016 election result despite losing the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million ballots. However, it may be days before the result is known, especially if legal challenges focused on postal ballots are accepted in the event of a tight race. There is...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — President Donald Trump and his reelection campaign are signaling they will pursue an aggressive legal strategy to try to prevent Pennsylvania from counting mailed ballots that are received in the three days after the election. The matter could find its way to the Supreme Court, especially if those ballots could tip the outcome in the battleground state. The three-day extension was ordered by Pennsylvania’s top court. The Supreme Court refused to block it, but several conservative justices have indicated they could revisit the issue after the election. Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat, already has told local elections officials to keep the late-arriving ballots separate, but also to count them. She acknowledged that a post-election court fight could change that. Trump’s threat of legal action comes as he has been delivering a chaotic closing message during the waning days of the campaign as he lags behind Democratic rival Joe...
    PHILADEPHIA (CBS/AP) — President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden have one last chance to make their case to voters in critical battleground states on Monday, the final full day of a campaign that has laid bare their dramatically different visions for tackling the nation’s pressing problems and for the office of the presidency itself. The candidates are seeking to lead a nation at a crossroads, gripped by a historic pandemic that is raging anew in nearly every corner of the country and a reckoning over race. More than 93 million people have already voted and it could take longer than usual for elections officials to process the historic surge in early and mail-in ballots. Both campaigns insist they have a pathway to victory, though Biden’s options for picking up the required 270 Electoral College votes are more plentiful. Trump is banking on a surge of enthusiasm from his...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday responded to an Axios report that suggested Donald Trump is planning to declare premature victory on Election Night if he secures an early lead, The Hill reported. “My response is the president is not going to steal this election,” Biden told a reporter in Philadelphia when pressed on the issue. The Axios report claimed that Trump has been telling advisers of his alleged plan behind closed doors. Notably, he would purportedly do so even if the Electoral College numbers are still waiting on significant numbers of uncounted votes. Trump denied the claims in the report shortly after. However, he still expressed concern with the collection of ballots after Election Day. “I think it’s a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election. I think it’s a terrible thing when states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time...
    DONALD Trump may continue campaigning AFTER Election Day if the contest against Joe Biden remains undecided.

    Trump adviser Jason Miller suggested the administration might start a legal battle against including ballots counted after Election Day to prevent an attempt by Democrats to "steal back" the election. During an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Miller said that even Democrats anticipate Trump will be ahead on election night before a "blue shift" turns the tide in favor of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. "If you speak with many smart Democrats, they believe President Trump will be ahead on election night, probably getting 280 electoral, something in that range. And then they'll try to steal it back after the election," Miller said on Sunday. "We believe we'll be over 290 electoral votes on election night. So no matter what they try to do, no matter what kind of high jinks or nonsense they try to pull off, we'll still have enough electoral votes to get President Trump...
    HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — No matter who seems to be on top on election night, one group of people will undoubtedly be winners: lawyers. As both President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden spend the final days of the campaign touring Pennsylvania, attorneys for both parties and campaigns have begun setting up camp in anticipation of a long, drawn-out battle over the counting of ballots. Those preparing to assist in the filing of briefs and lawsuits have already begun making comparisons to Florida in 2000, when the legal teams for George W. Bush and Al Gore spent weeks working to swing the state and its winning share of Electoral College votes to their respective candidate. “I can tell you I’ve heard many advertisements from organizations that I would perceive to be not Pennsylvania organizations, heard ads from the radio. Litigation is possible. That’s certainly true,” said election lawyer...
