The president’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, went further, telling Vanity Fair: “He has an incredibly fragile ego and his fragile ego will not allow him to acknowledge that he is a loser, that he lost the election to Joe Biden… This is a cash grab. When you finish a job, you’re always thinking about how to reinvent yourself. That’s what Donald Trump is doing right now.”

In the latest setback to his doomed appeal, his right-wing media allies, notably Fox News and Newsmax, have been forced to drop their conspiracy theorising on his behalf after receiving a legal threat from Dominion and Smartmatic, manufacturers of voting machines, both of whom deny their devices are vulnerable to manipulation.
