  • Trump has yet to concede and falsely accused Democrats of “stealing” the election.
  • Most Europeans preferred Biden, but Trump had fans in Central Europe.
  • Democrats defended their majority in the House of Representatives, where all 435 seats were contested. Control of the Senate, where 35 out of 100 seats were contested, is still in the balance.
