The emblematic medium published a video that quickly went viral and ends with the current US president saying goodbye.
The current president of the United States, Donald Trump, continues to deny the defeat against Joe Biden and insists with legal actions to try to stay in the White House. However, there are more and more voices supporting the triumph of Biden and his vice, Kamala Harris.
In addition to messages of support and congratulations to Biden from many of the most important world leaders, the US media marked his position. Perhaps the most shocking message was that of The New York Times, who published a video loaded with irony in which asks you to accept defeat.
“Time to be a good loser, Donald Trump “, is the title with which the NY Times spread the video, which in a few minutes went viral on social networks.
In the video they show images of celebrations after victories and disappointments after defeats, at sporting events or elections. And it also emphasizes the position of other candidates who lost elections and recognized and congratulated their rival.
The closing of the video is forceful. A voiceover tells Trump that “It’s time to be a good loser”, while Trump walks and greets, like someone saying goodbye.
As the hours passed, thousands of Americans took to the streets to celebrate Biden’s victory, very close to many others who support a Trump who does not know defeat and feed the idea of an alleged fraud.
The still president, who used social networks to question the count of votes made by mail in different states and demanded that the count be interrupted, published after Argentine noon that he won “the election, by a long shot.”
These elections “are far from over,” Trump said in a message published by his campaign. He added that “it is the legal votes that decide the president, not the media,” and announced on Monday the start of a legal offensive to guarantee “that the true winner” takes office.
