Trump returns to White House amid jeers and taunting songs
Trump has defiantly refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden
After losing his reelection bid, President Donald Trump returned to Washington, D.C. where jubilant citizens were celebrating his defeat.
On Saturday afternoon, the president’s motorcade returned from his golf club in Virginia, traveling along roads that had been cleared of other cars and people. But as he drew closer to the White House, Trump was greeted with boos and raised middle fingers. The crowd chanted, “Loser, loser, loser,” and they sprinkled in a mixture of profanities as the president’s motorcade rolled past.
After losing his bid for a second term, Trump has defiantly refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden, and is threatening court action to challenge his Democratic opponent’s win. Trump is the first president to lose reelection since George H.W. Bush lost to Bill Clinton in 1992.
Twitter users wasted no time in reacting to Trump’s unusual homecoming.
Twitter user Andy J.S. Decepida wrote: “LOL, so many birds were flipped at “The Beast” as it wended its way through Biden celebrators! Trump’s return to White House from golf course was delayed as celebrators were cleared from the packed streets.” In the photo beneath the caption, a celebrant holds a sign that reads: “We Grabbed Him By The Ballot.”
Morgan J. Freeman (not the actor) wrote on his Twitter account: “PHOTO OF THE YEAR: Donald J. Trump watches the celebration of his election loss as he returns to the White House after playing golf at his country club.” He added the hashtag #YOUREFIRED.
