Donald Trump has declared this Thursday that will leave the White House if Joe Biden is confirmed officially winner of the US elections but he reiterated that he might not admit defeat.
Trump launched an unprecedented political and judicial effort to challenge the election results and took several unsubstantiated legal actions that were struck down by courts across the country.
In a meeting with journalists, the first since the elections in which he answered questions, the president he came close to admitting that he would only serve his first term until he is replaced by Biden on January 20.
Asked if he would leave the White House in case the Electoral College confirms Biden’s victory, he replied: “I certainly will. And you know it.”
However, the still president reiterated that “it will be very difficult” to admit defeat, and has insisted that if the authorities confirm the current results “They will have made a mistake.”
“There was a massive fraud”
Trump has made these statements on the occasion of the Thanksgiving, andn his first appearance before the press answering questions from journalists after videoconference with US troops abroad.
The magnate has not missed the opportunity to continue insisting that the winner of the presidential elections on November 3 was him and that he also won by a “tremendous” majority of votes, although the latest polls handled by the US media they give Biden about 80 million votes, almost seven million more than the Republican magnate would have obtained.
Thus, Trump has argued that the difficulty of admitting the results lies in the fact that “there was a massive fraud” and although he did not provide proof of this again, once again, as he has been doing for the last few days, he has announced that in the coming weeks “things that happen” will be tested that will be “shocking to people.”
In just over half an hour with journalists, Trump has also had time to announce that “probably” on Saturday he will travel to the state of Georgia, where he could participate in some kind of political rally to support the two Republican candidacies at stake in the second round. election for the Senate.
