Trump CONCEDES presidential election

Description:

President Trump concedes the 2020 presidential election.


Stephen Fowler, a political reporter for Georgia Public Broadcasting, joined "Red and Blue" to break down the latest on President Trump's push to his loss in Georgia's presidential election overturned.
#US President Donald #Trump's campaign and his allies have suffered a string of judicial defeats in their bid to prevent states from certifying President-Elect Joe #Biden as the winner of the Nov. 3 presidential election. FRANCE 24's International Affairs Commentator Douglas Herbert explains.
President Trump pressured Georgia's Republican secretary of state to "find" enough votes to overturn Joe Biden's win in the state's presidential election, repeatedly citing disproven claims of fraud, according to a recording of the conversation. (Jan. 4)
Set a reminder to watch live on January 6 at 12:30 p.m. ET: CBSN will have live coverage as Congress meets to count the Electoral College votes in the November 3 presidential election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. The event has in the past been perfunctory, but this year, Republican lawmakers in both the House and the Senate have said they plan to challenge Mr. Biden's victory.

While the objections will not change the outcome of the election, they will prolong the process to affirm the results. Mr. Biden won 306 Electoral College votes, while President Trump won 232.
