Over three weeks after President-elect Joe Biden was declared the election winner, President Trump still refuses to concede. Along with other Republicans, Trump has filed dozens of lawsuits contesting the results despite a lack of any evidence of fraud. The majority of cases have already been dismissed, but Trump remains hopeful. As per usual, he has taken to Twitter to spread his daily dose of disinformation, tweeting baseless claims of election scams, many of which have been flagged by the platform as false. However, recent polls indicate that most Republicans fervently believe the election was unfair, adding to the preexisting tensions along party lines. No matter what the president says, the truth is impertinent to his supporters. As Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration approaches, Trump’s continual output of lies and hatred only makes a peaceful transition of power harder. Could someone take Twitter away from him, please?
