What does a president do when he is set to lose the elections, with the entire world watching? If you’re Donald Trump, you go golfing.
Trump, on Saturday morning, left the White House even as the last crucial vote counts were about to come in from Pennsylvania.
Known for regularly hitting the links, Trump headed across the Potomac River to the Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia.
When the major US television networks declared that Joe Biden as the President-elect, Trump was there playing golf.

He was also there when his office released a defiant statement saying Biden was “rushing to falsely pose as the winner.”
Wearing dark gray slacks, a gray jacket and a white “Make America Great Again” basehall hat, he engaged in what seemed to be lighthearted banter.
As he stepped away, several people shouted after him: “We love you! We love you!”
Afterward, as thousands of exultant Biden supporters celebrated raucously in front of the White House and elsewhere in the US capital, the Trump motorcade made its way back to the White House.
The president had nothing else on his schedule Saturday.
