Asides from refusing to concede, Donald Trump has spread wild theories about stolen ballots and launched legal suits to challenge the results of the election.
Meanwhile, With less than two months to the official handing over of US leadership mantle to Joe Biden, a crisis has hit the camp of the former vice president.
