Trumps campaign seems to admit defeat in email to supporters.

Donald Trump's campaign sent a fundraising email Tuesday night asking supporters whether Trump should run for president again in 2024 — a tacit admission that he lost the 2020 election.

"Rest assured, YOUR president will NEVER stop fighting for YOU and YOUR family," reads the email, which is peppered with bizarre and unnecessary capital letters.

The email was sent with the subject line "Should President Trump run in 2024?" and falsely says the "Radical Left STOLE" the election from Trump.

Of course, asking supporters whether Trump should run again in 2024 is an admission that he will no longer be in office come Jan. 20, when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in.

That's because the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution clearly states, "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice."

After submitting a response to the poll, the recipient is asked to provide an email address and then a donation to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee "to keep fighting even after Election Day." It's part of a barrage of solicitations from the Trump campaign since the 2020 election, in which they've raised millions on the false premise that the donations could help make Trump's anti-democratic attempt to steal the election successful.

The effort has already failed, as judges threw out Trump and his allies' lawsuits, and the Electoral College voted on Monday to seal Biden's 306 to 232 victory.

Yet Trump is still pushing baseless voter fraud lies as part of his failed coup attempt.

Now, he wants Congress to refuse to accept the Electoral College results when the new members meet on Jan. 6 to ceremonially ratify Biden's victory.

But that effort will also fail, and he will be out on Jan. 20.

CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy has unearthed a memo distributed at Fox News from Kevin Lord, the company's head of human resources, announcing that while more than 90 percent of its full-time employees claim to have been vaccinated for COVID-19, the company was now set to institute daily testing for everyone else. (Four weeks ago, all Fox employees were required to upload their vaccination status into a human resources database.)
