DONALD TRUMP is out of public view, exacting revenge on his political enemies, ranting about a stolen election and risking allies on Capitol Hill, who are starting to concede that he has lost.
— HE HAS HARDLY made a public appearance since losing the election. He has nothing on his public schedule today.
— HE CANCELED his Thanksgiving trip to Mar-a-Lago. CNN: “Trump remains bunkered in the White House as the world spins on”
— HE FIRED a DHS official who said the election was safe and secure. Story from Eric Geller … Chris Krebs’ tweet: “Honored to serve. We did it right. Defend Today, Secure Tomrorow [sic]. #Protect2020”
— HE HAS FIRED the Defense secretary, and sidelined the CIA director.
— HE AND HIS ADMINISTRATION are hardly engaged with Congress on the issues of the day — including new measures to fight the pandemic.
