Donald Trump is photographed for the first time in Washington after the election defeat by Joe Biden. Wife Melania Trump, however, has not been seen for three days.
Donald Trump, 74, lost the US election. He must vacate his seat in the White House on January 20, 2021 – when his political opponent Joe Biden, 77, will take office as the 46th President of the United States. The bad news that the news broadcaster CNN announces at 11:24 a.m. local time, Trump learns in sports. The “Trump National Golf Club” is 40 kilometers from the Oval Office.
First recordings of Donald Trump after the election defeat at the White House
In casual clothes and with a baseball cap on his head (labeled: “Make America Great Again”) Trump returns to the White House at 3:13 pm. His expression: petrified. No victory gesture, no protest, not a word. Just a wave for the reporters. It seems as if reality is slowly arriving at the still-President: He has lost.
He doesn’t want to admit that in public. Joe Biden “wrongly declared himself the winner” and the race for the White House is “far from over”. He will “not rest until the American people get the honest count they deserve,” Trump said in a statement shortly after the CNN forecast. He is silent on Twitter. Where in the four days since the people voted, threats, aggressiveness and tirades of anger rained down on the public, suddenly there is silence for hours. Fashion looks: Jill Biden’s style
The president is unreasonable
As soon as he arrives at the White House, Donald Trump goes back into attack mode. “I won the election and received 71,000,000 legal votes. BAD THINGS HAPPENED THAT OUR OBSERVERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE”, he breaks his six-hour, digital silence at 4:53 pm German time. Attack is the best defense, they say. In the end, it probably won’t help Trump. The legal steps he wants to take on Monday promise little prospect of a change in the election results.
Where’s Melania Trump?
First Lady Melania Trump, 50, has not been seen since Trump gave a controversial speech (“We are going to the Supreme Court. We want all voting to end”) on the early morning of November 4th. Where it is – unclear. It stands to reason, however, that she stands out in the White House. Melania made her last sign of life the day before Biden’s victory: In a tweet she advertised her “Be Best” initiative to support children.
