Election 2020President Donald Trump has not stopped his obsessive effort to discredit an election that he lost by a wide margin. He continues to spread lies and misinformation to his nearly 90 million Twitter followers, alleging that the election was rigged. On Sunday, he appeared to acknowledge for the first time that Joe Biden won, blaming his loss on baseless and debunked conspiracy theories about the election.

Since Biden was declared the President-elect, Trump has spent no time answering questions from reporters he doesn’t perceive as allies.Trump backtracks after acknowledging that Biden wonTrump backtracks after acknowledging that Biden wonTrump backtracks after acknowledging that Biden wonJUST WATCHEDTrump backtracks after acknowledging that Biden wonReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Babies and toddlers who got one dose of antibiotics were more likely to have asthma, eczema, hay fever, food allergies, weight problems, obesity and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder later in childhood. Multiple antibiotic treatments below age 2 were associated with varying conditions based on the child’s gender, age, type of medication and number of doses. Researchers analyzed data from over 14,500 children. About 70% of them had received at least one antibiotic — with most receiving multiple.5. BelarusAt least 1,000 people were detained across Belarus as crowds protested against longtime leader Alexander Lukashenko. Protesters have taken to the streets for more than three months demanding his resignation after an August election they say was rigged. The protests have grown in recent days following the death of Roman Bondarenko, a 31-year-old anti-government protester, who died Thursday after he was beaten by security forces, his family members said. Protesters chanted and carried signs with the words “I’m going out,” which were his last known words before he died. Lukashenko has ruled the country for 26 years.Video shows Belarus police beating protesters inside supermarketVideo shows Belarus police beating protesters inside supermarketVideo shows Belarus police beating protesters inside supermarketJUST WATCHEDVideo shows Belarus police beating protesters inside supermarketReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
