Newly elected Republicans of the House were brought to the White House, but Trump did not come out of the residence to greet them.
The Politico Playbook reported:
LAST NIGHT MCCARTHY staff brought the newly elected Republicans to the White House. Masks were mandatory – even MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE wore them most of the time. Utah’s GOP candidate BURGESS OWENS had called his race in his favor during the White House tour.
Interesting to note: President DONALD TRUMP did not come to meet the group. He sent his good wishes.
With the exception of a coronavirus response update filled with lies, Donald Trump has locked himself in and sulked in the living area of the White House. The only time he’s gone out is charging taxpayers with money to visit one of his clubs and play golf.
It’s like Trump is so broken with the idea of losing the election that he can’t be with people who won their elections because it only reinforces what a loser he is.
This kind of classless behavior is to be expected from Trump. He didn’t work in the Oval Office. There was no reason for him not to come down and greet the newly elected Republicans of the House except for the president to sulk.
Donald Trump did not react to defeat like a tyrant. Instead, he locked himself in his bedroom and tried to furiously tweet his humiliation. The president so many once feared shows that he really is nothing more than a spoiled child.
