WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said on Thursday that it will be difficult for him to allow the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, even if the Electoral College is expected to officially confirm Biden’s victory soon.
“It’s a very difficult thing to admit,” Trump told reporters on Thanksgiving, when he first raised questions from the press after a series of videoconferences with members of the military service.
Pressing further on whether to let the Electoral College finalize Biden’s victory, Trump said, “If so, they made a mistake.”
However, when asked if he would leave the White House based on that result, Trump said, “Of course I will.”
Trump falsely told White House reporters at a 35-minute question-and-answer session that he won the 2020 election with a “huge” amount. NBC News election tracker said Biden received more than 80 million and Trump 73.8 million votes.
He reiterated his baseless allegations that the election was stolen from him because of fraudulent votes in key states on the battlefield that Biden had won.
He also falsely said it would be hard to admit “because we know a huge fraud has happened”. The president said, “You’ll see things happen” over the next week or two that will be shocking to people. “
Trump said he was likely to visit Georgia on Saturday and suggested he probably hold some sort of campaign-type meeting.
– Speaking of Georgia, we’re going there. I spoke to the two big senators today. I’ll probably go on Saturday. , ”He said, suggesting that this could be an event that would help the two incumbent senators of the GOP run the state race to decide which party controls the senate.
Trump also said he doesn’t want to say yet whether he wants to attend Biden’s January 20 inauguration.
