And then we accept the results.” Trump, meanwhile, stuck to his unfounded account of having won the presidential election. “The election was lost by the Democrats. They cheated,” said Trump via audio switch at a meeting of Republican senators in the US state of Pennsylvania. “We have to turn the election.”
