“They’re saying, ‘Stay in the fight!’ ” one campaign source told CNN. “Hard for people to stay in the fight when they’ll be unemployed a week from today.”
This source also said that campaign leadership noted the lackluster attendance at Monday’s staff meeting, which was announced with just 15 minuti’ Avviso.
With the uncertain prospect of continued employment with the campaign, many staffers are on the hunt for a new job. Quella, pure, is getting some in trouble.
Soon after the staff meeting, campaign manager Stepien’s assistant shouted at a campaign staffer for printing their resume in the office.
While Trump himself has remained largely out of view since Presidente eletto Joe Biden pulled far enough ahead in the vote count to secure a victory
— emerging from the White House only to play rounds of golf over the weekend
— some of his closest advisers have agitated publicly and privately for a two-front political and legal war over how ballots were handled in several decisive battleground states
Trump has promoted baseless claims about problems with the results as his campaign team has scrambled to pull together a piecemeal legal strategy that courts have so far treated with almost uniform skepticism.
The chaotic nature of their election fight was on full display Saturday when Trump hyped a last-minute news conference from Rudy Giuliani and others at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia just hours before Biden was projected as the winner — only to correct himself soon after that the press conference would actually be in the parking lot of the similarly named Four Seasons Total Landscaping company. Giuliani stood in the parking lot of the business as the race was called for Biden and ranted about dead people casting ballots, providing no evidence.
Campaign aides have weighed a path forward that could involve anything from rallies to a surrogate messaging blitz aimed at amplifying the President’s unsupported allegations of voter fraud. The strategy could offer the additional benefit of buying Trump’s lawyers time to advance their litigation, people familiar with the plan told CNN.
In definitiva, tuttavia, Trump’s legal challenges have virtually no chance of changing the verdict delivered by voters. Biden pulled ahead over the weekend in a number of key states Trump won in 2016 and had hoped to hold onto this cycle, compresa la Pennsylvania, Arizona e Georgia.
Although Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, approached the President on Saturday about the prospect of conceding to Biden, the campaign has since worked to project the sense that all aides to the President are united in their desire to see him continue with his fight against the results.
