    Trump making allegations that the voting results are a fraud is not in good spirits. Now that the results are out and Joe Biden having been declared a clear winner there is no point in Trump sticking to his seat. He should admit his defeat and step down decently to make way for the new incumbendants to hold office at the White House.
