US political commentator Megyn Kelly told Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan that despite Donald Trump may not win the 2020 election overall it has been a better result for the Republican Party. She added Mr Biden has no mandate from the people and that he will need to use executive orders to get legislation through the US political system. 

Mr Morgan said: “Trump got over 80 million votes at least and counting, which is one of the biggest votes cast for anybody in an election.

“Joe Biden has got the record but Trump is right up there.

“The Democrats have lost seats in the house of representatives, and they have not gained the Senate.

“Biden is going to be quite a lame-duck President in many ways, isn’t he?

“If you are the Republicans, you might think that a few years of hammering from the outside is no bad thing.”

Ms Kelly replied: “On balance it was probably a better night for the Republicans than it was for the Democrats.

“The Democrats got the big prize they wanted which was Trump out, we think from the numbers coming in.

“But the Republicans have got 10 more seats in the house, they were supposed to lose seats in the house and it looks like they have held onto control of the Senate.

“He comes in pretty hobbled, Biden, as he emerges to the top job, has no mandate.”

The political commentator added: “He doesn’t even know the people, he was in his basement sitting on a beanbag just trying to phone in for some Zooms.

“He didn’t work for it because he was winning with his basement strategy.

“The Republicans are going to be more determined than ever to stop everything he does.
