PELOSI, SCHUMER RESPOND TO TRUMP’S REFUSAL TO LOSE: Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer speak to the press after Democrats have officially kept control of the House. As Pres. Trump continues to refuse to acknowledge his loss or participate in a peaceful transfer of power, Pelosi, Schumer, and other top Democrats are calling on their Republican colleagues in Congress to condemn the president’s words and actions. On the Senate floor earlier this week, Schumer said ‘Republican leaders must unequivocally condemn the president’s rhetoric and work to ensure the peaceful transfer of power,’ and added that Trump’s baseless election fraud claims were ‘extremely dangerous, [and] extremely poisonous to our democracy.’ Pelosi has also said that Trump ‘is intent on using his final days in office to sow chaos in our American Democracy and around the world,’ particularly after the sudden firing of Defense Sec. Mark Esper.
