Election 2020: All 50 states and DC have certified their results, with the Electoral College voting Monday

All 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia have officially certified their presidential election results, with the final state, West Virginia, certifying its results on Wednesday.

On Monday next week, the Electoral College will convene in Washington, DC to cast their votes for president, declaring an official winner of the contentious one-of-a-kind 2020 election. After which, the electors’ votes will later be transmitted to officials and tallied in a joint session of Congress on January 6.

Coupled with that, President-elect Joe Biden also has enough electoral votes to successfully secure his victory, with the Associated Press giving him 306 Electoral College votes to President Donald Trump’s 232. Some faithless electors, however, could theoretically shake that up, but experts say it’s unlikely. The 2016 election saw an unusually high number of electors break ranks with their state delegations and casting their votes for individuals who were never candidates, but ultimately these electors had no impact on changing who won that election.

Additionally, the General Services Administration (GSA) officially started the presidential transition a few days before Thanksgiving and, starting in November, Biden’s transition team has been announcing the president-elect’s cabinet and administration appointments each week.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump refuses to concede the election as his team and supporters continue to launch lawsuits in multiple swing states, alleging widespread election fraud. Of the dozens of lawsuit that have been launched since November 3, none have been successful in changing the election results in any state.

In recent days, some more lawsuits seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 election have been filed. In fact, 17 states have joined Texas to have the results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin investigated.

The president’s support among Republican politicians in his post-election legal fights has been gradually waning as the lawsuits keep falling flat and as the states pushed forward in certifying their results.

Reports have been circulating that Trump might run for president again in 2024 and that Trump is allegedly planning not to attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony on January 20 and will instead host a political rally in Florida, possibly announcing a 2024 bid that day. This would make him the first president since 1869 to skip his successor’s inauguration and the fourth president in U.S. history to do so.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
