Trump cites Biden victory on Twitter, still presses false rigging claims

Clash erupts between extremists in Washington

All three tweets were flagged by Twitter for false information, with the tag saying, "This claim about election fraud is disputed".

"I think that as a country, we need to stand up and unite and stand together for truth and for our freedom", said a Trump supporter.

Trump's campaign has tried to mount legal challenges across the country, but numerous lawsuits have been thrown out and none has included any evidence that the outcome might be reversed.

This is the same margin Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by in 2016 and at the time, Trump called it a landslide victory.

Many of those challenges have been tossed out by judges, some within hours of their filing.

A week after his Democratic rival clinched the election, Trump's lawsuits have made little headway in the courts while Biden has received congratulatory calls from world leaders and forged ahead with work on forming his Cabinet.

'It is very important that Joe Biden have access to the intelligence briefings to make sure that he is prepared, ' Hutchinson said.

"It probably sets him up for a strong run in 2024".

Mr Biden's pick for White House chief of staff, Mr Ron Klain, has said that a rapid transition is necessary to ensure the government is prepared to roll out a potential Covid-19 vaccine early next year.

Democrats say this could have a damaging impact both on national security and on the grave and mounting challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden further solidified his victory on Friday as results from Edison Research showed him winning Georgia, giving him a final tally of 306 Electoral College votes, far more than the 270 needed to be elected president and above Trump's 232. The American people did that, he told NBC. Now, Trump is refusing to concede his loss as he believes he was wronged by the democratic process.

There has been no widespread fraud in the 2020 election. "Donald Trump lost what, by any evidence we have so far, was a free and fair election". Speaking on NBC'S Meet the Press, Klain said it is critical for the agency to formally acknowledge Biden as the victor to ensure that the President-elect receives intelligence briefings describing national security threats before taking office and to facilitate coordination with the White House coronavirus task force.

But a number of people had already screenshotted and edited the president's admission, joking that it's the closest thing we'll get to a Trump concession. I think that's a start of an acknowledgement.

"I will not go - this administration will not be going to a lockdown".

More than 10,000 Trump supporters rallied in Washington on Saturday to back his claims of fraud - massing in Washington's Freedom Plaza before marching to the Supreme Court in a raucous atmosphere.

After dark, groups of Trump supporters and counter-protesters clashed on the streets, scuffling and throwing punches.

City police said they'd made at least 20 arrests - three of which involved assaults - but a total count wasn't expected until Sunday morning.
