BOSTON (CBS) – After a lot of noise about members of the Electoral College potentially switching their votes to keep Donald Trump from becoming the next president, it was business as usual today with no real surprises. Donald Trump is officially the next President of the United States of America. Or is he? Will this be the end of the protests and cries of foul play from the Democrats? Since losing the election, Democrats have blamed fake news, voter fraud, Russian influence, demanded a recount in a number of states, and started a campaign to sway members of the Electoral College to go against the voters’ wishes. Will there be another roadblock or will this finally end the post-election complaining and protesting?
