On November 24, elected president Joe Biden tweeted “the election is over.” Since then, he hasn’t mentioned Donald Trump directly.
Biden shared the message of Thanksgiving on his Twitter account, promising to fight the COVID epidemic, and promising his incoming administration would “build back better,” but their absence makes direct references to the outgoing president.
Biden last named Trump in a tweet seven days ago when he criticized the outgoing president for not allowing the election despite the defeat in the election, several states have verified their achievements and the start of the transition process.
The same cannot be said of Trump’s Twitter activity, as Bident has been mentioned at least 15 times since Nov. 24 on the president’s account, directly by name, or through posts from other users that have been retweeted to 88.8 million followers.
Ever since he lost his Democratic opponent, Trump has continued to dispute the results of the 2020 election, claiming without evidence that the voting process was fraudulent or that the machines used to count the votes were manipulated in some way.
His campaign has launched a number of legal attempts to change the outcome of the referendum, a tactic that has so far proved ineffective. On Monday, the state of Arizona last verified its achievements, further shaping Biden’s victory.
With his tweets referring to Biden, Trump was largely fixed on how many votes his rival could attract. CBS News reported that Biden exceeded 80 million votes, the highest turnout in U.S. history, thanks to a record turnout.
Trump wrote on Nov. 27: “Biden can only enter the White House as president if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not obtained fraudulently or illegally.” On the same day, he claimed that the states won by Biden were politically corrupt.
While there were no direct references to President Trump last week, Biden made indirect nods about how his administration differed from what America has experienced over the past four years.
“It’s time to get rid of hard rhetoric, lower the temperature, and listen to each other again. To move forward, we need to stop treating our opponents as enemies. We’re not enemies. We’re Americans,” Biden tweeted on Nov. 29. .
Trump was not mentioned by name in Biden’s November 25 Thanksgiving speech either, although Biden promised that “the grim season of division” would end.
According to a transcript of Trump’s speech, during a teleconference at a Thanksgiving with members of the Army, where he was interrogated by reporters, the president once again lasered Biden to collect more than 80 million votes.
“If we look at the numbers, the numbers are fake. The numbers are corrupt. It was a fake election – 100 percent – and people know it,” Trump said falsely.
