Mr Biden has been confirmed as the winner of the election after Electoral College voters certified the President-elect’s 306 seats to Mr Trump’s 232. In the wake of the confirmation, high profile Republicans and the Russian President congratulated the former Vice President on his victory while Mr Trump again refused to concede. Now, Mr Morgan, host of Good Morning Britain, has lashed out at his former friend for not conceding to his Democrat rival.
In an op-ed for the Daily Mail, Mr Morgan told the outgoing President “it’s over” and urged him to accept the election results.
Opening his article by suggesting Mr Trump’s biggest fear was “being boring, irrelevant and a loser”, he said: “Right now, the President of the United States is living his worst nightmare.”
Mr Morgan said the “biggest impact” on the President was Mr Putin’s telegram congratulating Mr Biden for his election win, where the Russian leader wished the President-elect the “utmost success”.
The GMB host added: “Putin knows that which is why he finally chucked his ‘friend’ under the bus and began sucking up to his successor.
“The ruthless Russian leader’s telegram was the political equivalent of poisoning Trump with nerve agent Novichok, Putin’s preferred method of dispensing with those who have ceased to be of any use to him.
“It’s over, Donald. Vladimir’s moved on, and it’s time you did too.”
Mr Morgan also blasted his former friend for continuing to challenge the results of the election despite having no evidence of fraud.
The GMB host also skewered Republican Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina, who said Mr Trump still has a “very, very narrow path” to a win.
Mr Morgan added: “I’ll tell you exactly how narrow that path is, Mr Graham – it’s narrower than the world’s most narrow street, Spreuerhofstraße in the city of Reutlingen, Germany, which measures just 31 centimetres in width and is so small that people are warned not to try to squeeze their way down it or they’ll get stuck.
“Now imagine President Trump trying to force his driver to take the presidential limo The Beast down that street and you’ll understand just how narrow his path to re-election now is.”
The White House has refused to follow Mr McConnell’s lead in congratulating Mr Biden.
Kayleigh McEnany, press secretary, said when asked about the Electoral College vote: “The president is still involved in ongoing litigation related to the election.
“Yesterday’s vote was one step in the constitutional process so I will leave that to him.”
Mr Trump on the other hand said: “Tremendous evidence pouring in on voter fraud.
“There has never been anything like this in our Country!”
Mr Biden, speaking yesterday from Wilmington, Delaware, hailed the results of the Electoral College vote and skewered Mr Trump for attacking the integrity of the electoral process.
He said: “Respecting the will of the people is at the heart of our democracy, even when we find those results hard to accept.
“The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago, and we know that nothing not even a pandemic or an abuse of power can extinguish that flame.”
The President-elect then said “urgent work” must begin on tackling the US’ coronavirus pandemic, stressing the importance of economic relief “so needed by so many Americans who are hurting today”.
