A Picture and its Story: Protests, rallies and two impeachments: Trump's presidency in photographs
U.S. President Donald Trump departs after speaking about the 2020 U.S. presidential election results in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., November 5, 2020. Carlos Barria: "As the entire country waited for the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential elections, tensions were building at the White House. I was on duty as a member of the press pool on Nov. 5, two days after Election Day and without a declared winner, when it was announced that President Donald Trump was going to deliver remarks in the White House briefing room. Only a small number of people are authorized to be in the briefing room during the global pandemic. The president walked in, carrying a folder with some notes for his remarks. 'If you count the legal votes, I easily win,' Trump said in his first public appearance since election night. 'They're trying to rig an election, and we can't let that happen.' Then he abruptly left the room without taking any questions from reporters. I had him in my frame using my telephoto lens as he approached the exit, and I followed him in that tight frame as he put his arm around a column. I shot that gesture. He was holding onto the column which I interpreted as him wanting to stay for another four years." REUTERS/Carlos Barria/File Photo SEARCH "PHOTOGRAPHERS TRUMP" FOR THIS STORY.
