2020 ELECTION/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Former president Donald Trump’s communications director recounted popping into the Oval Office roughly a week after the 2020 election to find a morose Trump watching TV: ‘Can you believe I lost to this f—ing guy?’ Trump lamented, referring to then-President-elect Joe Biden.

A young aide to Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows recalled Meadows telling her, ‘A lot of times he’ll tell me that he lost but he wants to keep fighting it.’”
