As leaders across the world send their congratulations to Joe Biden for winning the race for the White House, there is one leader yet to send his well wishes.
Vladimir Putin says he will not congratulate Joe Biden on his victory just yet. Not until all ‘legal processes’ are done with, according to his spokesperson.
Departing president Donald Trump has launched a legal battle against his defeat, and Putin is clearly reluctant to congratulate Biden until all of that is over with.
Michael Cohen, the leader’s estranged former personal attorney, said he expects Trump to flee the White House.
“I WOULD NOT BE SHOCKED IF THERE IS NO CONCESSION SPEECH AT ALL. MY THEORY IS THAT AT CHRISTMAS TIME HE GOES TO MAR-A-LAGO. I THINK HE WILL STAY THERE THROUGH THE INAUGURATION. I WOULD NOT BE SHOCKED IF HE WILL NOT SHOW UP TO THE INAUGURATION EITHER.
“HE CANNOT LET THE CAMERA LOOK AT HIM AND BASICALLY PULL DOWN THE CURTAIN AND SEE THE WIZARD STANDING BESIDE. HE IS JUST A LOSER AND IT IS KILLING HIM AND, RIGHT NOW, WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WHITE HOUSE IS NOTHING BUT FINGER-POINTING.”
