Trump regrets committing to a peaceful transfer of power and will not resign: report. Trump's recent behavior 'would meet criteria for an involuntary mental health hold': mental health expert

   
One day after President Donald Trump released a video committing to a peaceful transfer of power, he was banned from Twitter—his strongest form of communication with his base. As expected, the new directive did not go over well with Trump and now, according to The New York Times, he regrets committing to a peaceful transition.

Amid calls for Trump's resignation or impeachment, the isolated lame-duck president is reportedly seething behind closed doors at the White House and has made it clear that he will not resign.

The publication reports:

At the White House, Mr. Trump struck a defiant tone, insisting that he would remain a potent force in American politics even as aides and allies abandoned him and his post-presidential prospects turned increasingly bleak. Behind closed doors, he made clear that he would not resign and expressed regret about releasing a video on Thursday committing to a peaceful transition of power and condemning the violence at the Capitol that he had egged on a day before.

The latest report comes shortly after Trump's commitment to a peaceful transfer of power. In a perplexing video message, the president offered a tone completely different from his typical attacking rhetoric. While he did not make any apologies for his involvement in the siege on the U.S. Capitol, he called for calm as he finally admitted that a new administration would be taking over on Jan. 20.

"Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem," Trump said in the video. He also claimed: "the demonstrators who infiltrated the capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy."

He added, "To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will pay."

As Inauguration Day nears, lawmakers are on edge as they are concerned about more potential damage an unpredictable Trump could cause in his final days at the White House.

Trump Pressured Another GA Elections Official in Second Phone Call: WaPo

 Getty News
Details of a new phone call between President Trump and a Georgia elections investigator have surfaced in which Trump told the official that they would become a “national hero” if they found evidence of election fraud. The official, who works as the investigations chief in the Georgia secretary of state’s office, was looking into allegations of ballot fraud in the Atlanta suburbs. State officials ultimately concluded there was no widespread fraud. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told the Post that the call was inappropriate. “I don’t believe that an elected official should be involved in that process,” he said.

News of the call comes a week after the bombshell release of a late December phone call between Trump and Raffensperger, in which Trump demanded Raffensperger “find” new votes. Legal experts say both calls could potentially amount to a crime of obstruction of justice.

Amazing how these social platforms have just now figured out....that they are "allowing too many posts that encourage violence and crimes"
 

This social platform hasn't done anything, just Apple & Google. You can still browse to the site (if you wanted to).

When he's talking about tempering the sword, I can't help but think to watching Forged in Fire. Anytime a forger does a second or third quench, the judges cringe because they know it makes the metal more brittle, not stronger. In the same way, I'm not sure America can survive continued strife of this nature. Jan 20th is a big day, and first and foremost there needs to be a National Guard presence to keep those who would violently object at bay. But more than that I think people need to stand up and say enough is enough. This is done and if you want to undo it, you will have your chance in 4 years.

I hope nothing happens in 10 days, but I do fear there will be more violence.

Why is the focus only on the senators? What about the 100+ members of congress?

Trump has to be one of the most disgusting human's in the world, people thought he would change when he became President and he did for the worse, he thinks he can do anything he wants he thinks he is invincible he needs to be impeached and he needs to pay for the rest of his miserable life

Holy ****, I had no clue about this qanon bollocks about mass arrests and public executions... this guy explains it and puts things in a terrifying perspective- this could have been a MUCH darker day.

 

 

Its pretty debatable as to whether the worst is over. These nut groups have been growing underground for decades, nurtured by coded messages from politicians and tolerated by police.  They will probably go mostly underground again, surfacing at times and places where they can influence events and gather acolytes.

Very bad smell, here....

There is plenty of blame to go around,  but there are some 2000 cops in DC who could have been mustered instead of the couple dozen that were present.

Until they find someone else to pander to them.  A Ted Cruz type or something.  Trump's real lasting legacy, will be his bringing these "nut groups" out of the shadows, and into the mainstream of the GOP.
