On Thursday, President Donald Trump said that he will leave the White House once the Electoral College formalizes Joe Biden’s victory. He still insisted that such a decision would still be a “mistake”. This is how President Trump spent his Thanksgiving holidays – renewing his claims of “massive fraud” taking place during the 2020 Presidential Elections. It is noteworthy that there was no such reports of fraud except from Trump’s mouth.
Taking questions for the first time since the elections, Trump said, “Certainly I will. But you know that”. He further added, “It is going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know that there was massive fraud”. Trump also insisted that a lot of things are going to happen between now and when the time comes for him to leave the White House officially.
“This has a long way to go,” Trump said as he insisted on events that may alter the results. Reporters also inquired if he would be present at Biden’s inauguration ceremony. In reply, he said, “I know the answer”. He didn’t explain his comments any further.
President Trump has continued to make claims about fraud and crooked officials being present at the battleground states. Thus leading to his defeat. Even though he and his team have continued making several claims, they couldn’t provide any evidence whatsoever.
President Trump has expressed concern over Joe Biden taking over him
On Thursday, Donald Trump sat down with reporters in the ornate Diplomatic Reception Room in the White House. At the meeting, Trump repeated his claims and condemned officials of Georgia and Pennsylvania. These two states were detrimental to Biden’s win. Trump has also said that this might not be his last Thanksgiving at the White House. Despite Biden’s huge win over him in the elections. Even though state officials and international observers have found no evidence, he still claims that there was “massive fraud” during the elections.
Trump’s administration has already authorized a formal transition for the President. Trump has still expressed concerns about Biden taking over his seat. Trump said to the reporters, “I think it’s not right that he’s trying to pick a Cabinet”. Whereas the officials from both the teams are already cooperating to bring Biden’s team up to speed.
President Trump has also declared that he would be visiting the state of Georgia to rally supporters ahead of the two Senate runoff elections. This election is going to decide which party gets control over the Senate.
Sources say the Republicans have chosen to stand by Trump and his claims of fraud to appease his ever-loyal base vitalized before the runoffs on January 5, 2021. Trump also argued if that election would be fair in a move that could dampen Republican turnout.
Trump asserted that they are dealing with a very fraudulent system. He also said that it has worried him. He further added that people are very disappointed that “we were robbed.”
Regarding the Electoral College, Trump said that he likely never formally concede even if he had to leave the White House. He also took credit for the coronavirus vaccines. He asked reporters not to let Joe Biden take credit for the pending coronavirus vaccine. “Don’t let him take credit for the vaccines because the vaccines were me and I pushed people harder than they’ve ever been pushed before,” he said.
Joe Biden won by a huge margin in the Electoral College and popular vote. He will take the Presidential oath in the upcoming month of January.
