President Donald Trump on Sunday declined to give a date specifying when he'll drop the lawsuits alleging election fraud. For weeks, Trump has been trying to cast doubt on the election results, pushing nearly two dozen legal attacks and demanding vote recounts. There is no evidence that fraud occurred this election, and Trump has not yet won a single lawsuit. Despite the evidence, Trump on Sunday sidelined Bartiromo's questions and did not give any sort of end date for the election charges. The Biden transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.

President Donald Trump on Sunday called the 2020 presidential election results "the greatest fraud in the history of our country from an electoral standpoint." Trump again came back to his long-running bashing of the US media, tying it in with his widely debunked allegations of mass voter fraud in the presidential race. This is the greatest fraud in the history of our country from an electoral standpoint.

Biden Fractures Foot Playing With His Dog, Putting Him in a Boot

President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. twisted his ankle playing with one of his dogs over the holiday weekend, an injury that his doctor said on Sunday resulted in hairline fractures in his foot that would most likely require him to wear a walking boot for several weeks. Although initial X-rays showed no obvious fracture, a “follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden’s lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the midfoot,” Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the director of executive medicine at GW Medical Faculty Associates, said in a statement distributed by Mr. Biden’s office. Mr. Biden visited an orthopedic specialist in Newark, Del., on Sunday afternoon for just over two hours, leaving just before 6:30 p.m. and going to an imaging center for a short time for the additional CT. A Biden spokesman said the president-elect had scheduled the follow-up on Sunday to avoid disrupting his schedule on Monday. A van was maneuvered to block reporters and photographers from seeing Mr. Biden as he entered the doctor’s office. Mr. Biden, 78, is already operating on a crunched transition time frame, after the head of the General Services Administration did not formally acknowledge the presidential election results for weeks after Election Day, temporarily depriving Mr. Biden of access to federal resources and preventing his advisers from beginning coordination with Trump administration officials.

Sandys/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin wrote in a letter to Senate Banking Committee Republicans on Friday that he hopes they will continue to show trust in the Treasury and Federal Reserve to manage coronavirus relief programs. Mnuchin came under fire from President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team and Democrats in Congress over his decision to allow some Federal Reserve coronavirus lending programs to expire. “As a result of Congress’s swift legislative action and Treasury’s and the Federal Reserve’s work to implement these programs, we have been successful in restoring confidence in financial conditions,” Mnuchin said in the letter to Banking Committee Republicans. The two teams would “share information and facilitate an effective transition,” the spokesperson said.

In a Friday tweet filled with lies, President Trump implied he won't leave the White House and won't let President-elect Joe Biden "enter" unless Biden can prove his election win was not fraudulent. "Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous "80,000,000 votes" were not fraudulently or illegally obtained. Biden does not have to disprove mass fraud to become president, and there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in any of the cities listed in Trump's tweet. Trump himself does not have the authority to determine whether Biden "can enter" the White House.

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are optimistic the Biden administration will allow them to rebuild and move forward on dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC was sidelined by the Trump administration over their warnings on the severity of the outbreak. Trump and his close allies instead pushed misinformation about the novel coronavirus for months, and touted unproven medicines as cures. The CDC has been sidelined by President Donald Trump's administration during the COVID-19 pandemic, in part for their warnings about the outbreak in the US and their efforts to highlight the seriousness of the novel coronavirus. One CDC official told CNN they were excited the transition had finally begun.

Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, the subject of an ethics complaint we filed, along with former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub, last Wednesday with the Senate Ethics Committee. Senate ethics rules prohibit Senate employees from engaging in campaign activity, unless it is clear that they do so on their own time, outside of Senate space, and without using Senate resources.

Trump also shared a video in which Quaid used a creepy voice to recite one of the president's tweets attacking Fox News. Trump has filed numerous lawsuits in the wake of Biden's Nov. 7 win and made false accusations of voter fraud.

On Tuesday Greencore, the United Kingdom’s biggest sandwich maker, used a so-called “cash box” to raise 90 million pounds by issuing 18% of its share capital.

WASHINGTON—President-elect Joe Biden is moving quickly to take advantage of government resources for his transition to the White House after the Trump administration ended a 16-day stalemate and announced its intention to begin cooperating with his team. Transition officials began reaching out to agency officials on Monday night, immediately after the Trump administration said it would begin working with the president-elect’s team, a transition official said. The transition team had been preparing for the Trump administration to change course and end its two-week-plus policy of blocking government resources to Mr. Biden. Mr. Biden’s tech team migrated the president-elect’s transition website over to government servers shortly after the administration’s announcement Monday night. General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy said Monday that her agency would formally provide federal resources for Mr. Biden to begin a transfer of power.

And yet for weeks, Trump's team refused to allow Biden's transition team access to the plan. It's hard to overhype the dangers such stonewalling posed to an efficient vaccine distribution plan. Withholding the current distribution plan from the transition team risked the president-elect's team not being ready to effectively implement the plan. Biden needs to be read into the details of Trump's plan now, because the plan may need major alterations. But by refusing to immediately share details of the vaccine distribution plan with the incoming administration, lives may have already been lost.
