Nov, 27th 2020 – Donald Trump has said he will leave the White House if Joe Biden is formally confirmed as the next US president by the electoral college.
Trump has refused to accept defeat saying it would be hard to concede. Speaking to reporters, he reiterated claims of voter fraud in the November 3rd Elections.
Answering the question on whether he will leave the White house if the Electoral College confirms Biden’s victory, he said, “Certainly I will. And you know that.” Adding that, “If they do, they made a mistake. It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede.”
The Electoral College will on the 14th of December to certify Biden’s victory, with Biden receiving 306 votes to Trump’s 232 votes. Speaking on the results, Trump termed it as fraud without providing any evidence to reporters on Thursday the thanksgiving Holiday. He stated, “This was a massive fraud.”
He acknowledged that he was running out of time to present evidence of the fraud he was talking about, a sign that the evidence might never come. He said, “The whole world is watching and the whole world is laughing at our electoral process.”
He argued that the Democrat couldn’t have done well compared with previous Democratic candidates although population growth historically drives growth in voting numbers, and the charged 2020 election cycle resulted in high turnout at every step.
Speaking on Biden, he said, “This is not a candidate that can get 80 million votes. The only way he got 80 million votes is through a massive fraud. I’ll be honest, I know the answer, but I just don’t want to say it yet.”
He declined to say whether or not he will attend Biden’s inauguration as is the outcome for an outgoing president. He also thought that it’s not right that Biden has begun picking a cabinet.
