  • Just as he did in that speech to his followers before they stormed the capital building yesterday in Washington on still no condemnation of the violence in that message, notably, yes, a typically bullish statement from the president, perhaps the closest that has come to conceding the election, pledging an orderly transition of power.

  • But there is, as you say, much that he is not talking about in that statement, specifically the events of the past 24.
