There are ongoing discussions between Newsmax and Hicks Equity Partners, an investment firm connected to the Republican National Committee, according to the Journal. The deal would include a video-streaming service.

Business Insider called the race for Joe Biden on Friday, November 6, but Trump so far has refused to concede. Instead, he’s been blasting Biden’s victory and pushing baseless assertions that the former vice president won because of voter fraud.
Newsmax has been backing Trump up on these unsubstantiated claims. The outlet has even begun to take aim at Fox News, criticizing its hosts for going against Trump’s claim that the election results in favor of Biden are not valid.
