Business Insider recently spoke to the senior members of five college Republican groups across the country for their reaction. 'Pleasantly surprised' by the electionThe college Republicans we spoke to largely believe their cohort will follow the trend of previous generations, and grow more politically conservative with age.

There is growing speculation that President Donald Trump could decide to issue himself a presidential pardon before leaving office in January, as a way to shield himself from future prosecution. In time-honored style, President Donald Trump spent Thanksgiving Eve taking part in the annual presidential turkey pardoning ceremony in the White House Rose Garden. On Wednesday, the president retweeted a post from GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz, which said: "President Trump should pardon Flynn, the Thanksgiving turkey, and everyone from himself, to his admin, to Joe Exotic if he has to." But the presidential pardoning power only applies to federal crimes, so would not apply to any of the nine lawsuits currently being pursued. Ultimately, the fact that a self-pardon is an option being seriously discussed highlights the legal problems that Trump could face when he leaves office.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsWASHINGTON (Reuters) - More prominent Republicans on Monday joined the call for President Donald Trump to end efforts to overturn his election defeat and allow President-elect Joe Biden to begin the formal transition to a new administration. Twenty days after Election Day, most members of Trump’s party still refused on Monday to refer to Biden as president-elect, or to question Trump’s insistence - without evidence - that he had only lost on Nov. 3 because of fraud. Republican Senator Rob Portman - co-chairman of Trump’s campaign in Ohio who rarely breaks with party leaders - said there was no evidence of widespread election fraud and called for the transition to begin. “It is now time to expeditiously resolve any outstanding questions and move forward,” Portman wrote in a Cincinnati Enquirer opinion column on Monday.

Trump did not deliver a message for the event, and there did not appear to be any American presence in the session. Trump participated briefly in the opening ceremonies of the virtual summit hosted by Saudi Arabia with the rest of the G-20 leaders. The president later went to his golf course, Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, where he's spent the last several weekends since the election. It was not clear for most of the week if Trump would even attend the final G-20 summit before he leaves office. More than 57 million people have been infected and more than 1.3 million have died of the virus worldwide during the pandemic as global leaders struggle to produce a coordinated response.

The campaign and Trump supporters have filed a flurry of lawsuits in multiple states challenging the Nov. 3 election but have yet to overturn any votes. Pennsylvania has been a fixture of those efforts and any hope of reversing the election hangs on outcome in the state. On Monday, three lawyers representing the Trump campaign asked to withdraw from the case, saying the campaign had consented but offering little explanation. Biden clinched the election with his victory in Pennsylvania, putting him over the 270 electoral votes needed to win. In the Pennsylvania case, the Trump campaign alleges Democratic-leaning counties unlawfully identified mail-in ballots before Election Day that had defects so that voters could fix, or “cure,” them.

"The simple fact is this election is far from over," Trump said in a statement released just minutes after NBC projected that Biden had become president-elect.
