- He will speak by phone with ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ host Maria Bartiromo
- Will call in from Camp David, where he spent the weekend after Thanksgiving
- Trump has barely spoken publicly since the election, but is vocal on Twitter, where he claims he is the true winner and refuses to concede to Joe Biden
The president will join Fox News host Maria Bartitomo on her show ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ at 10:00 a.m. by phone from Camp David, where he spent the weekend after Thanksgiving.
Trump has still not conceded to Biden, despite several swing states certifying the election for the former vice president.
One close adviser explained to the Washington Post that Trump was like ‘Mad King George’ going around the White House ‘muttering, ‘I won. I won. I won.’
The adviser explained that the president’s aides are ‘happy to scratch his itch.’
‘If he thinks he won, it’s like, ‘Shh . . . we won’t tell him.,’ the source described in the Sunday report.
Since November 3, the country has barely heard from the president and he has only emerged from the White House a handful of times – mostly to travel across the line from Washington D.C. to Sterling, Virginia for a round of golf at his club there.

The last interview Trump participated in was with a local Milwaukee radio station on Election Day. Since then, he has made a few public appearances for short remarks, whether it be on the coronavirus vaccine or soaring stock market, but has barely taken questions from the press or directly addressed the election results.
On Thursday – Thanksgiving Day – Trump took his first question from a reporter since the election, indicating for the first time directly that he would vacate office if the Electoral College ultimately votes for Biden.
He made sure to clarify that he is still not conceding that Biden did win as the president continues to launch legal battles in key swing states that went blue this year.
‘Certainly I will, and you know that,’ Trump said when asked about leaving the White House if Biden is declared the winner on December 14.
‘I will and, you know that,’ he added.
‘It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud,’ Trump said. ‘As to whether or not we can get this apparatus moving quickly — because time isn’t on our side, everything else is on our side, facts are on our side, this was a massive fraud.’
While he has been quiet in public on the election, Trump has been very vocal on Twitter.
Almost daily he tweets that he is the true winner and alleges there was massive fraud, rigging and cheating by Democrats to ‘steal’ the election for Biden.
Trump has spoken publicly about eight times since election, only appearing publicly for official business like laying a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery for Veterans Day, making remarks at the virtual G20 Summit and addressing the nation about the coronavirus pandemic and his administration’s continued response.
He also left reporters stunned last Tuesday by calling a press conference on the Stock Market reaching record-high levels and then speaking for less than a minute before leaving the White House briefing room without taking any questions.

Trump often joins Maria Bartiromo, one of his favorite media figures throughout his presidency, for call-in interviews, where he can be heard but not seen.
Biden has already begun announcing members of his Cabinet as he prepares to take office on January 20. The General Services Administration also finally ascertained the election for Biden last week, meaning he can now start receiving daily intelligence briefings and communicate with the coronavirus task force.
The president, however, said last week that Biden has to ‘prove’ he earned all of his votes legally before he can take office.
‘Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not fraudulently or illegally obtained,’ the president posted to Twitter Friday. ‘When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!’
Trump’s tweets claiming fraud and insisting he won the election have been flagged by Twitter.
