Trump predicted everything... He wants to uncover the fraud and manipulation in the voting, mail ballot. He stand with American people against the hijacking of election as some third world countries do. This is a shame for America.

If Biden is innocent then why he is afraid of the investigation? Why he is afraid of investigation? Let allow an international team to look into this election fraud.... This is the way it happened in many countries.

Other wise USA is no more a democracy ..

trump will never ever concede, it is his MO. His guiding principle. Cheat. Steal. Break laws! No problem. The article states that if Moscow Mitch, who might be tired of Trumpy, and he tells his GOP to “stand down” (womp womp) then they will but MITCH has never done the right thing ever. So, civil war we come!

The article ends with this: "I think the best case scenario is eventually the lawsuits go away, Trump never concedes, but Biden is inaugurated on Jan. 20," he said. "And then Trump spends the next few years trying to take down America through the media conglomerate he's going to create. That's not a great scenario either. So either way, we're in for rough seas. And we're not even talking about the pandemic, or climate change, or racism!"

I disagree, he will be in jail!

Democrats are mean to Japan. Trump was unpredictable but he had human touch. Trump was a prodigious president who woke up Americans and the world about the danger of China for the first time. Hegemony struggle will continue between U.S. and China. As he said if U.S. does not change China, China will change America.

Bidens police reform plan actually does make sense, but that should of been done years ago. Agreed, Trumps rhetoric and poor leadership on police brutality did not help things, but the lefts reaction of "defund the police" anarchy and violence, was bizarre. Still processing that.

The Dem mayors governors and Congressmen/women response.was the usual....nothing.

what is needed is the sunshine vaccine and people to return to work

Clouds like trillion dollar climate change jobs based on fairy dust technology are not.

The Dems should of fronted Buttigieg instead of Biden, come with fresh plans to counter the lefts insane budget dreams, as he did during the debates.

Conservative posters, HOW LONG are you going to recycle this nonsense. BIDEN WON.

New York Times already had a banner headline and article about the certification process. Republicans were even allowed to see the count, so WHAT are you whining about. Besides trying to mess it up (police caught one person with fake ballots in a Hummer), and others trying stupid stuff, this election was clean! Trump is so far behind that it is ridiculous to think a second count will change things, but go ahead! You pay for it!

Not to worry. I'm sure Suga will have learnt from his bum chum predecessor that it's best to brown nose the US president and then everything will be rosy for Japan.

Biden wouldn’t last 5 minutes if you put ho. In a room with Xi or Putin. At least Trump had the guts to stand up to globalism. Trump woke a lot of people up and they won’t be sleeping any longer

The challenging part for Japan will be getting phone calls from Biden claiming he is President when he actually is not.

that will be confusing on both sides.

it must be so painful Blacklabel to not understand math and how state after state have already certified the count anf found NO fraud other than rumors and of (hahaha) one postal clerk claiming he say fake ballots and after collecting 130,000 dollars from conservative suckers, he RECANTED! Geez, THAT is what I call a good and profitable and fun con job! But frankly there is always parler.com for you people, the place where it is ok to say the ni—word. Hahah

Biden is seen as preferring a more multilateral approach to trade.

And the award for euphemism goes to ...

Perhaps a second silicone valley will emerge under a Biden presidency. That will be his best commitment to growing the domestic economy.

Japan has the right and should not only look at the US,we live in a time where the USA aren’t the only super power anymore,at least not like during the cold war era and the first 10 years post cold war.

Japan for it’s own benefits must tie it’s economical interest with other countries and form new alliances.

Japan has always found dealing with the outside world challenging, other than on a mercantile level.

Wrong. America's "Pivot to Asia" was implemented under the Obama administration. US defense of the Senkakus was declared under the Obama administration. A sitting Japanese PM visited Pearl Harbor and a sitting US President visited Hiroshima - under the Obama administration. So Democrats are hardly "mean" to Japan.

Waking the US up to the Chinese threat was one of the few, if not only, things that Trump did right during his 4 years. But now that the US (and the world) is awake there will be no change under Biden administration in our position towards China.

International observers observed the election and their conclusion was that it was a free and fair election with no fraud. Biden has no issue of investigation of the election because it was clean. Why does Trump insist on lying about it and why do Trump supporters who know he lies about everything, believe him on this?

Reality will bite Trump soon enough, and he will realize he can not steal this election no matter how many lies he spouts or law suits he brings. The will of the majority has gained Biden the majority of electoral college votes so Biden won. Nothing worse than a sore loser. But Trump wants to destroy American institutions on the way out the door much like Hitler preferred Germany burn if they couldn't win the war for him.

Such a disgusting person. Worst President EVER! No honor, no morals, no intelligence, no honesty, no thank you.

Are you saying the courts are not clean? Sounds like a conspiracy theory to me.

It's about the greed here.. Japan and China will cozy up and stroke nationalistic egos but, there won't be any love. No love for long time.

Greed, greed, greed, feed, feed, feed.

Under a the globalist rule that Biden represent, resistance to the CCP would end and stupid ideas like the TPP would be revived. Bad all around for Japan.

Trump should allow for the counting to be finished, the results shown to the public, and if legit, with charm and charisma, hand the torch to Biden. It would squash all the hate. Then return to civi life and twitter check the epic buffoonery about to come.

Did i miss something? How does not having an issue with investigation suggest the courts are not clean?

Only a Trump fanboy/girl could find a conspiracy theory in a straight forward statement. The courts are clean as was the election. What is not clean is the environment or Trumps presidency. Major conspiracy theories abound in all Trumps actions. Now he tries to steal the election from the people. America has got to stop Trump trying to steal the election.

News flash. All of Trump's court cases have been swiftly thrown out.Wow. In any case, it's so good that America isn't like Russia. Otherwise, the shenanigans that Trump and his minions are pulling would actually work in trying to steal the election to make him dictator for life.

Fortunately, Americans have voted fairly and officials in every state has done an excellent job of making sure every vote counts.

The unfortunate thing, is that Trump continues to try to destroy the fabric of American's sacred electoral process by making false and baseless accusations that millions of officials, vote counters, politicians, media, and many more millions of voters who took to the streets to celebrate, are all in some kind of mass conspiracy.

Does he care that people are catching the corona virus? No. Will he care even if he's somehow elected again? No. All he wants to do is to go back to watching TV, tweeting and playing golf.

What's even more disturbing is that so many of his followers would rather choose a president that tweets, over one that actually tries to do something about the pandemic. Wow!

Whatever any of you numbnuts think, opinionate, or profess, Biden is not the President of the United States, and Trump is the President of the United States. Irregardless of what happens next, America has slipped a couple of rungs down the ladder of civilization and is an embarrassment for us all.

While we wait to find out who the next President will be, enjoy getting red in the face about the kabuki.

The US Government and military were fully aware of the threat China represents. The problem was big business pretty much prevented the US Government from publicly calling them an enemy. Any time you tried you were shouted down by the corporations doing business there. That btw still remains a problem. Disengaging fully from China will do a lot of harm to some of the US biggest companies, like Boeing, GM and Caterpillar just to name a few companies that count China as their largest single market. Caterpillar also sells an awful lot of their equipment to Chinese funded projects in Africa and Asia.  Corporations don't care about nations, only their shareholders and their own incomes. The pivot to the Pacific and lots of new weapons now coming on line were initiated during the Obama administration. There was definitely awareness. Don't fool yourself otherwise.

That is the problem. It is a simpletons answer to the world. Study some economics and you will discover it is also a fools errand. Brazil and India tried autarky in the 1960s through the 1980s. It failed miserably. Adam Smith and David Ricardo warned us it would fail.

Study some classical economics and learn. Then you won't make such uninformed statements. Tariffs and subsidies always in every case raise prices and reduce output. They represent a deadweight loss the economy. Always, in every case.

Nothing is wrong with America First - for Americans. For the rest of us, it just means we need to switch to America Last.

What's so hard to understand about America First.

One thing would be the definition of "America". Its companies, its religions, its rich, its poor? It's a diverse nation, which is not a bad thing. But I think we all have our opinions on which of those diverse groups should come first.

President Trump was very clear and straightforward about that.

Oh yeah, without allies the US is vulnerable to its enemies, and that affects your freedoms and your standard of living and maybe even whether you get to live a full life. Part of the reason we have forces abroad on our allies land is a belief it is better to fight our enemies over there than in our own cities.

I don't know? Plenty of drug cartels and street gangs are run from prisons. It could be his new "reality" show. Instead of "The Apprentice" it would be "The Inmate".
