As Donald Trump continues to push unfounded conspiracy theories in a futile bid to overturn last month’s election results, some of his closest allies are breaking rank.
For Fox News Channel personality Geraldo Rivera, the difference in opinion has caused a rift in their long friendship.
Rivera said: “I don’t mean to be petty or partisan. I just want you to know that as his friend, even if he may not be speaking to me right now because of my position on the election being over.”
Nevertheless, he went on to credit Trump for “the role he played” in making headway against the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to spread unabated nationwide.
