It has now been a week since U.S. media networks called the election for Joe Biden. At this point, Biden’s powering ahead with the transition as much as he can. But Donald Trump still has not conceded. And he's still saying, without evidence, that the election was stolen from him. And not only is he talking (and tweeting) about it, he's also fighting the outcome in court and purging top officials.
Although several Republicans believe a formal transition process should begin, few are actually challenging Trump’s narrative. It all raises the question: where does their party go from here, knowing that more than 73 million Americans voted for Trump?
Elamin calls up two major figures associated with the Republican Party to discuss: Rick Wilson, strategist and co-founder of the Lincoln Project, and Michael Steele, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee.
