Donald Trump and Mike Pence have made their first public appearance since their defeat at the presidential elections and it seems as though Trump, in particular, is a little out of character.
Keep scrolling for the video...
Donald Trump has recently made his first public appearance since his defeat at the elections.Along with Mike Pence and First Lady Melania, the president attended a Veteran's Day event at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
But this time, he's much quieter than we expected.In fact, he was so quiet, that he didn't even give a speech at the event, which is totally unlike him.
And people had some pretty strong opinions as to why this might be the case...
Of course, it is most likely going to be because he's still reeling from the embarrassment of his election loss...Because as you will all be aware by now, the president suffered a colossal loss to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, for this year's presidential elections.
Of course, Trump has been doing everything in his power to challenge the result...
via: GettyAnd recent tweets have shown that he has resorted to downright denying the election and its results.
Although polls across the country closed on Tuesday, November 3rd...
via: GettyIt took days for a result to be announced. As the days trickled by, each State gradually announced their winning candidate and, throughout those tense couple of days, the numbers remained painfully close between President Trump and former vice president, Joe Biden.
Trump was clearly feeling the heat...
via: GettyAnd, as the counts went underway, he tried to temporarily stop vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, States where Joe Biden was projected to win.
But regardless of the president's many accusations and threats, the results were in after 4 long days of ballot counting.
via: GettyThe Associated Press called the race for Biden when Pennsylvania's twenty electoral votes put him over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the Electoral College.
Shortly after his victory, Biden Tweeted this:
America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I p… https://t.co/iUORklENs0— Joe Biden (@Joe Biden)1604767962.0
Democrats all over the country quickly rejoiced at the news of Biden's historic win...
We just learned that Joe Biden has been elected 46th President of the United States, New York can’t stop cheering.… https://t.co/8mPwgcn0tx— Quentin A. Alexandre (@Quentin A. Alexandre)1604767345.0
However, there's someone who certainly hasn't in the mood for celebrating...
via: GettyAnd that's President Trump, of course.
Trump's reaction to Biden's win has been nothing short of outrageous.
via: GettyThough the president is a historically sore loser - he's very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life - and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.
His first response to Biden's win was to release a lengthy and damning statement...In which he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. As per Sky News, the statement read: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media."
The statement then went on to explain how legal proceedings will begin immediately.It continued: “Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. “The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. “It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room - and then fight in court to block their access. “So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands."
And the frenzied Twitter rants were quick to follow.In his rage, Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one to have won.
He tried to take some small victory from the situation...And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes. Whatever helps you sleep at night, Don.
However, more damning accusations were quick to follow...Trump seems set on the idea that Biden and his team rigged the entire election to play out in their favor, and made strong hints that something happened in the counting rooms that had "never happened before."
Did someone say sore loser?
Trump's flexibility has never been his forte. 🤔 #TrumpSoreLoser #TrumpMeltdown https://t.co/jGtBgLKYv5— Laure Om (@Laure Om)1604933547.0
But recently, we saw him in a slightly different light...After his appearance at a Veteran's Day event yesterday in Virginia, we were quite shocked to find out that Trump did not give a speech to the veterans and soldiers in attendance.
He, along with Mike Pence and the first lady, paid their respects at Arlington National Cemetery...And usually, the president would be very eager, if not desperate, to get a few words in, but this time, he stayed quiet and kept himself to himself.
On the other hand, Biden attended a separate event at Korean War Memorial Park in Philadelphia.
This Veterans Day, I feel the full weight of the honor and the responsibility that has been entrusted to me by the… https://t.co/VjsNzut0R3— Joe Biden (@Joe Biden)1605130200.0
