If he would have pulled something like the Palm Beach speech from October 2016, that would have been interesting. Theres still a few things about the system, a man with nothing to loose could call out for crash and burn purposes.

But alas Trump isn't the guy for that.

Trump isn't a man with nothing to lose. Quite the opposite, holding onto the presidency is the only hope he has for getting out of his massive debts and avoiding being held to account for his many crimes.

I still like the theory that Trump *likes* losing.
Or at least the attention he can get with claiming he lost unfairly and how everyone is so mean etc. Gives him attention without responsibility.

He is expected to try to flee to his golf course in Scotland.

The UK is in lockdown. Coming to visit your golfcourse is not on the list with exceptions.
In addition, Scotland is planning to sue Donald for some tax-issues.

Well, not him specifically, but Scotland has travel restrictions and "I need to flee the bonfire I lit" isn't enough of a reason for Scotland to make an exception for him.

They haven't barred him specifically, but don't allow non-essential travel during the pandemic, and "I would like to find a quiet place off the 5th fairway to cry in private" isn't essential travel.

Considering that the storming of the capitol seems to have been planned including the pipe bombs and the planning of the kidnapping of various liberal politicians in various parts of the country by Trump supporters...some of them yes.
