Looking at the figures, it seems very likely that Trump has won a second term.How that will affect the world remains to be seen.😱

Trump has been well and truly trumped! Oh I'd love to be a fly on the wall at the White House now!

Smileless2012 Sat 07-Nov-20 16:55:51

Me too; can you imagine the look on his face when he knew it was all over!!

Joe Biden is now President elect!

Summerlove Sat 07-Nov-20 17:20:59

I’m shocked
But so very happy

Great news isn’t it? I had expected Biden to win but didn’t realise it would be such a close shave.Off to have a wine to celebrate.😃

Trump lost

Lollin Sat 07-Nov-20 19:16:31

So happy! Straight away Biden talks of uniting and coming together as a nation.

(When did Trump ever say anything truly positive!)

Apparently he is off playing golf!

lemongrove Sat 07-Nov-20 19:23:59

Yes Blossoming we all know that.😃

Fingers crossed it is the first of many good developments.

I wonder what this is a euphemism for?

Whitewave I am not long back on GN this morning. I should have known you would check anything serious you posted, and the 360 was an impossible number. I'd read too many wild guesses on various US sites yesterday!

It is 306 and certainly not impossible. In fact it is looking likely at the moment.

I posted as a little bet. Wish I’d put money on it now😄

Only 0.2% ahead in Georgia, although that is over 7000 votes. Fingers crossed, although that is just a vanity concern really.

Would be great if he smashed the 300 electoral votes though.

Someone has had the sense to send Trump off to the golf course, where he might be distracted and stop shooting his mouth off. At least he'll be kept away from the TV cameras for a while. If Melania could swap his steroid tablets for sedatives while he is away, he might even come down off the ceiling eventually.

certainly don't think he is going to be in her bed soon- ah.

Divorce lawyers lining up.

MY deserves everything that vibes her way - she’s a corrupt racist who has always known exactly what game she is playing and who she has sold herself to the highest bidder. Stop infantalising her - she’s an absolute disgrace to womankind.

MY = MT obvs
Vibes = comes
Too much champagne

Stop infantalising her
I'm not.

As Diane Abbott said - ....... mums will go to the wall for their children.
I believe most mothers would.

But perhaps a few wouldn't, suziewoozie, perhaps some would sacrifice them first before sacrificing their beliefs.

I haven’t looked at the news since about seven pm . At that point, the huge crowds outside the White House were joyous, no guns, no shouting abuse. Let’s hope getting rid of the orange white supremicist means the US finds a moral compass

What?

Are you her mother now?

She’s fully complicit.nothing to do with her child.

I seE MT has crawled out front under her rock to back up and feed DT’s lies - I expect it’s a clause in the pre-nup. .
