Trump Slams 'Rigged & Stolen' Election, COVID-19 Relief And More In Wild Boxing Day Rant
President Donald Trump unleashed a Twitter tirade on Saturday that got everything under control from the American electoral process to the Supreme Court to the Senate's $ 900 billion COVID-19 relief bill, which he has not yet signed.
In about an hour on Boxing Day morning, the president shot out six tweets, initially resorting to his unsubstantiated theories of electoral fraud and targeting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) And other Republicans for them did not support him.

Trump's claim that "Mitch & the Republicans are doing NOTHING" ignores the fact that McConnell and much of the rest of the GOP backed the president as he prosecuted stateside lawsuits to dismiss the November 3 election results.
After those lawsuits proved unsuccessful, many Republicans began to change their minds, but McConnell waited to publicly congratulate President-elect Joe Biden until December 15, the day after the electoral college declared Biden's victory and 42 days after of choice.
At the time, Trump hit McConnell on Twitter and wrote that the "Republican Party must finally learn to fight."
Trump also reached out to the Department of Justice and the FBI for failure to support his conspiracy theories about election fraud and took a moment to specifically call attorney John Durham.
Durham was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr in October as special advisor in the Justice Department investigation into Trump and Russia, led by the administration of former President Barack Obama.
The president repeatedly called for the so-called Durham Report to be published ahead of the November 3 election on the grounds that it would reveal attempts by the Obama administration to undermine it, and seething after it became known that the documents would not be published on his preferred schedule.
Trump sentenced the Supreme Court for rejecting its offer to invalidate votes in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin earlier this month, arguing that the court was "completely incompetent and weak".
The president then turned to Afghanistan, claiming that "a young soldier" had told him that "Afghanistan elections are far safer and much better than the US 2020 elections".
(A USA Today pillar of opinion released earlier this month compared Trump's post-election tactics with those of current Afghan director general Abdullah Abdullah, who alleged widespread fraud when he lost the presidency to Ashraf Ghani in 2014.)
Eventually, Trump turned to the COVID-19 bill, which he has not yet signed or vetoed. He claimed the robbery was because he "wanted to bring our great people $ 2,000 instead of the paltry $ 600 that is now on the bill."
Trump reiterated the arguments he made in a speech on Tuesday, also targeting additional items on the $ 1.4 trillion government spending bill passed with the Coronavirus Relief Act member of the Congressional District.
On Wednesday, Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio) MP beat Trump over the merger of the two bills, arguing that the "pork" Trump complained about were actually things that were originally called for in the White House's proposed 2021 budget .

Later on Saturday, Biden urged Trump to sign the relief bill to provide immediate relief to families who lose unemployment insurance if the spending provisions contained in the bill are not legally established.
"This waiver of responsibility has devastating consequences," Biden said in a statement.
