Donald Trump speaks publicly since election
US President Donald Trump has spoken publicly for the first time since the election was called for his rival Joe Biden.
In a White House news conference on the US covid-19 response, he insisted that he would not put the country into lockdown "under any circumstances".
But in a reference to the election result, he said: "Whatever happens in the future - who knows which administration it will be, I guess time will tell."
Trump has yet to concede the election to his Democratic rival.
The US reported 181,206 new Covid-19 cases and 1,393 deaths yesterday.
