Why 2020 was the 'precarity election'

Critics of Donald Trump -- of which there are many -- piled on the president on Sunday morning after he wrote that former Vice President Joe Biden "won" the election which is diametrically opposed to the White House talking points of the past week.

On Sunday, Trump wrote of Biden, "He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn't even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!"

That led Twitter trolls to accept that as Trump's concession -- ungracious as it was -- and something that was never expected.
