Meanwhile, not only is Trump adamant in his false claims that he won the election, but he also undermining Biden's presidency even before it begins.
"No, I worry about the country having an illegitimate president, that's what I worry about. A president that lost and lost badly," Trump said in a Fox News interview that was taped Saturday, CBC News reported.
