Half of the U.S. Population Has Been Tested for Covid, Census Data Shows

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Half of the U.S. Population Has Been Tested for Covid, Census Data Shows” – below is their description.

The U.S. is stuck in an unprecedented limbo nearly two weeks after Election Day and nine days after the presidential race was called for Democrat Joe Biden. President Donald Trump is refusing to concede, while also hardly acting as if he’s preparing for a second term. Yesterday, Trump seemed briefly to recognize he’d lost with a tweet asserting that Biden “won because the Election was Rigged.” He then walked back the post, which was flagged by Twitter for containing disputed claims of election fraud, saying “I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go.” Trump’s actions have delayed the start of the formal transition process, leaving the nation in an unusual state of electoral purgatory. Even so, Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have begun forming an administration-in-waiting. They’ll outline their plans today for a post-pandemic economic recovery. And, as Mario Parker reports, the initial tweet was interpreted by fellow Republicans as a possible concession — while the president’s advisers say he’s privately coming to grips with his defeat. The pressure from Republicans to get on with it is growing, with Trump’s abrupt personnel moves at the Pentagon and Homeland Security Department feeding concerns over national security. Trump’s political strength has hinged largely on his ability to keep members of his party in line. As Republicans increasingly look to the future, their patience with him may be wearing thin.
