Big Story

The Trump presidency ends in a whimper

TLDR: After a day of unprecedented chaos and violence, Trump has finally embraced the inevitable—with a concession speech that may be the most ‘normal’ of his presidency. More importantly, the yawning divide he created between Red and Blue America remains as vast as ever. 

Biden is finally in!
