John Fetterman, Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor, spoke to Business Insider about President Donald Trump, voter fraud, criminal justice reform, and his state's East vs. West rivalry. In 2024, however, he fully expects Donald Trump to be a candidate for US president. And I think that's one of the main missing links and criminal justice conversation in America today. If Donald Trump tweeted one plus one equals three, they would put a thing saying "this is in dispute." Like, if that doesn't help my Philadelphia cred, oh my god, I don't know what I got for you.

Trump’s team was dealt another blow with the completion on Sunday of recounts in Wisconsin’s two largest counties that confirmed Biden won the hotly contested state by more than 20,000 votes. Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis said the recounts “revealed serious issues regarding the legality of ballots cast,” without elaborating or providing evidence. The words of President Trump are not quite as significant.”Trump used his Fox News interview to repeat unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud. “The problem is it’s hard to get it to the Supreme Court,” Trump said. Biden won the presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 required - to Trump’s 232.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Sunday questioned whether the Supreme Court would ever hear a case airing his unproven allegations of widespread election fraud as senior U.S. Republicans said a transition to a Joe Biden presidency looked inevitable. “The problem is it’s hard to get it to the Supreme Court,” Trump said, without clarifying whether he thought the court would decline to hear an appeal or whether his campaign may not even make one. “On to SCOTUS!” Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis wrote on Twitter after the ruling, suggesting a plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Later, however, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani reportedly told One America News Network that the legal team was still weighing which case might be appropriate to pursue at the top court. Biden won the presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 required - to Trump’s 232.

All participants in Wednesday's meeting took COVID-19 tests, but the positive results were not announced until they were in the West Wing of the White House, the person said. Trump told Mastriano that White House medical personnel would take care of him, his son and his son's friend, who were also there for the Oval Office meeting and tested positive. Dozens of White House staffers and others close to the president have also tested positive, including the first lady and two of the president's sons. Trump even participated, calling from the White House while one of his lawyers held a phone up to a microphone. The person with knowledge of the White House visit said several people rode in a large van from Gettysburg, where the policy committee met in a hotel, to the White House.

(Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden plans to nominate Center for American Progress Chief Executive Neera Tanden as director of the Office of Management and Budget and economist Cecilia Rouse as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, the Wall Street Journal reported here on Sunday. Economists Jared Bernstein and Heather Boushey will be nominated to serve as members of the Council of Economic Advisers, the report added. Rouse, a labor economist at Princeton University, whose research has focused on the economics of education, previously served as a member of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers. The chief executive and co-founder of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, a progressive economic think tank, Boushey has been working with the Biden team as an unofficial economic adviser. Biden’s economic agenda is likely to focus on getting the country past the coronavirus crisis, both as a health and economic issue.

REUTERS/Hannah McKay/File Photo(Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Sunday that it might be difficult to get his election fraud allegations heard before the U.S. Supreme Court, expressing doubt about his legal strategy as his hopes of overturning the Nov. 3 election dwindle. “The problem is it’s hard to get it to the Supreme Court,” Trump said in a telephone interview with Fox News. Trump said he would still continue to fight the results of election, which was won by Democratic President-elect Joe Biden. “My mind will not change in six months,” Trump told Fox News.

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.

Trump also said the FBI and DOJ were "missing in action," bemoaning that the agencies weren't doing enough to prove his unsubstantiated claims. "This is total fraud, and how the FBI and Department of Justice — I don't know maybe they're involved. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the election, nor is there evidence of an effort to rig the election against the president. Instead, his legal team has filed a number of smaller suits, which don't allege fraud, in a number of states. In the Sunday interview — his first TV interview since losing the election — Trump refused to say when he'd give up the legal challenges and accept the election results.

The 2020 election shattered voter turnout records, with massive numbers of Americans voting for both Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Trump helped to both turn out rural voters for the GOP and suburban voters for Democrats. Contrary to popular consensus before 2020, a turnout surge did not accrue overwhelmingly to Democrats. But Republicans also enjoyed major gains in turnout in rural areas, which helped to keep Trump competitive even as Democrats swung suburbs. That strategy worked in 2020, but if Trump is not on the ballot again, Democrats cannot assume that their gains will be repeated.

Under his plan, the Census Bureau would report two sets of figures to the White House — one including everyone counted and another allowing him to leave out undocumented immigrants. The states would lose an equal number of Electoral College votes, which are based on the size of their House delegations. When Congress adopted the current federal law governing the census, it considered excluding non-citizens but rejected the idea, he added. But the Justice Department said federal law gives the president authority to direct how the census is conducted. For now, the states are assuming that the census figures will be ready in time to meet the deadline and Trump will make the calculations.

The 1991 gubernatorial election in Louisiana may have been the last decisive win for progressives in the South, and Southern progressives should emulate Edwin Edwards' campaign. On Election Night, the white male Democrat looked at the returns and felt supremely confident in his victory. But despite polls showing that the race would be tight and have a record-shattering turnout, the racist Republican lost decisively. This wasn't the 2020 presidential election, but rather the 1991 Louisiana gubernatorial contest between now-former Governor Edwin Edwards and ex-KKK leader David Duke. The progressives need bold, charismatic populists in the South like Edwards to reinforce its relationships with working people.

Brian Kemp, a statement that could potentially create major discord only weeks before two critical US Senate runoff elections in the state. In a call-in interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, Trump harshly criticized both Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger for utilizing Dominion voting machines in the state. Trump, still smarting from President-elect Joe Biden winning Georgia in the November election, has repeatedly blamed the state's usage of Dominion Voting Systems machines for his defeat. Kemp, formerly Georgia's Secretary of State, narrowly defeated former Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams in the 2018 gubernatorial election. Under Georgia state law, a Senate candidate must receive at least 50% of the vote to win an election.

From improving the relationship between the Treasury and the Fed to adjusting critical relief programs, here's how Yellen is poised to steer the Biden administration's economic policy.

President Donald Trump suggested on Fox Business that several world leaders have supported his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud. Numerous world leaders have congratulated and recognized Joe Biden as the president-elect, almost immediately after the race was called for him. Immediately after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential race, several world leaders either made contact with or congratulated him on his victory. In an interview given just a few days ago, Putin called Biden a "candidate" despite clear election results indicating he's the winner. That lack of confidence appears to have permeated his relations with world leaders, who acknowledged Biden as the victor much earlier than Trump.

President Donald Trump and top aides were convinced on election night that as in 2016, Trump would upset the odds and clinch victory, reported The Washington Post. Since losing the election more than two weeks ago, Trump has made baseless claims of election fraud and refused to concede defeat. President Donald Trump was convinced he would win on election night, and exploded with anger when Fox News projected that the Democrats had flipped Arizona, The Washington Post reported. According to a behind-the-scenes look in the Post at Trump's unprecedented bid to overturn the election result, Trump decided to claim the election was stolen from him by fraud on election night. In the weeks since election night, Trump has continued to make baseless claims that the election was stolen from him due to widespread ballot fraud.

WASHINGTON — White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said she hopes to brief President-elect Joe Biden's administration on America's response to the Covid-19 pandemic on Monday. Birx, referencing statewide data, also raised concerns about a potential uptick in coronavirus cases across the United States due to the Thanksgiving holiday. At more than 13 million coronavirus cases, the U.S. is facing the most severe outbreak in terms of total numbers. The agreement, which is part of Operation Warp Speed, allows the U.S. to acquire an additional 500 million vaccine doses.

Dane County finished its recount on Sunday, according to the county clerk, a few days after Milwaukee County finished its. Each recount produced little change in the final breakdown of the more than 800,000 ballots cast in the state. In the end, Biden’s lead over Trump in Wisconsin grew by 87 votes.

Throughout November, the developed world has celebrated milestones in the race for a COVID-19 vaccine. But lower-income countries may have to wait for years before they can vaccinate the majority of their population. Every American could have access to a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of April. While childhood vaccinations are becoming increasingly common in low-income income countries, people of all age groups, especially the elderly, will need the COVID-19 vaccine. Cause for optimismDespite the hurdles that lower-income countries face, mass global vaccination is still a possibility.

AMMAN (Reuters) - Jordan’s King Abdullah on Sunday met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and both leaders set high hopes that U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will revive peace talks over a two-state solution to the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict, officials said. FILE PHOTO: Jordan's King Abdullah II speaks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during the group photo with Arab leaders, ahead of the 30th Arab Summit in Tunis, Tunisia March 31, 2019. “His Majesty stressed Jordan stood with all its resources alongside Palestinians in achieving their legitimate rights to set up an independent state,” the monarch was quoted as saying in the statement. Trump’s peace plan was also seen as posing an existentialist threat to Jordan with the demise of a Palestinian state through the annexation of large parts of the West Bank pushing the kingdom to become an alternative state for Palestinians. In another joint communique with Abbas, both leaders said Israel “attempts to impose new realities” by annexing and accelerating settlement building in occupied Palestinian territory.

Milwaukee County, the state's other big and overwhelmingly liberal county targeted in a recount that Trump paid $3 million for, reported its results Friday, a 132-vote gain for Biden. “As we have said, the recount only served to reaffirm Joe Biden’s victory in Wisconsin," Danielle Melfi, who led Biden's campaign in Wisconsin, said in a statement to The Associated Press. With no precedent for overturning a result as large as Biden's, Trump was widely expected to head to court once the recount was finished. His campaign challenged thousands of absentee ballots during the recount, and even before it was complete, Trump tweeted that he would sue. Election officials in the two counties counted those ballots during the recount, but marked them as exhibits at the request of the Trump campaign.

The startling aspect about the Dolchstosslegende is this: It did not grow weaker after 1918 but stronger. According to the Pew Research Center, 89 percent of Trump supporters believe that a Joe Biden presidency would do “lasting harm to the U.S.,” while 90 percent of Biden supporters think the reverse. Since the election, millions of Trump supporters have installed the alternative social media app Parler. It took another war and decades of reappraisal for the Dolchstosslegende to be exposed as a disastrous, fatal fallacy.

Rabois believes that the Bay Area is losing its concentration of tech talent, perhaps permanently. Rabois was referring to the tremendous concentration of founder and engineering talent in the Bay Area, which has made Silicon Valley the undisputed center of the tech universe for decades.

That self-image as a "contrarian" is also key to his success as an investor, Rabois says. Now read:Is Silicon Valley finally dead?

Trump said he had asked his lawyers to file "one nice, big, beautiful lawsuit" encompassing his claims of voter fraud, but said his legal team told him he didn't have the standing to do so. "I said to the lawyers, I would like to file one nice, big, beautiful lawsuit," he continued. The president repeated himself, telling the Fox Business host that he had asked his lawyers to "put everything into one simple suit." But his lawyers told him he didn't have the legal ground to file such a suit, Trump said Sunday. The president's interview Sunday is the latest instance of his sharing unsubstantiated claims about voter fraud — claims which aren't backed up in the Trump campaign's various lawsuits.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran will give a “calculated and decisive” response to the killing of its top nuclear scientist, said a top adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, while a hardline newspaper suggested Tehran’s revenge should include striking the Israeli city of Haifa. Fakhrizadeh, long suspected by Western and Israeli government of masterminding a secret nuclear weapons program, was ambushed on a highway near Tehran on Friday and gunned down in his car. Iran’s clerical and military rulers have blamed the Islamic Republic’s longtime enemy, Israel, for the killing. Iran has in the past accused Israel of killing several Iranian nuclear scientists since 2010. Iran has always denied pursuing nuclear weapons.

But Uber drivers in Kenya are not alone in their experiences. Some Uber drivers have adapted their vehicles for alternative uses, saying they earn more selling fruit and vegetables than driving with the app. At the outset, Uber drivers were making 60 shillings per kilometer — about 97 cents a mile. Onduru, the Uber spokesperson, said that "in order to partner with Uber, drivers are asked to review and agree to Uber's terms and conditions."
