Norton, 51, said that Trump is trying to create enough chaos about a peaceful transition of power to where he can cut a “Nixon-style” deal in exchange for his eventual concession, noting that the president is in "multi-dimensional legal jeopardy." 

However, the "French Dispatch" actor wrote that Trump's "bluff" has already been called in court.

"The USA cannot let this mobster bully the USA into a deal to save his ass by threatening our democracy," Norton said.  

He added that Trump is "throwing a wicked pout fest & trying to give a tiny-hand middle finger to the whole country for pure spite, without a single thought for the dead & dying." 

 

Biden was projected to win the presidency four days after the election, securing 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232. However, the president has refused to concede, and his campaign has mounted aggressive legal challenges seeking to delay certification of the results in multiple states.
