Former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said the president could flee the White House for Mar-e-Lago on Christmas Eve and return to Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.
Speaking on MSNBC, Michael Cohen said the president could fight election results from his Florida escape facility until January and beyond.
“I would not be shocked if there was no discount speech. My theory is that he goes to Mar-a-Lago at Christmas. It is my opinion that he will be there by the inauguration. I will not be shocked if he does not show up until the opening, ”said Mr. Cohen.
“He can’t let the camera see him and basically pulls the curtain and can’t see the wizard standing next to him. He’s just a loser and it’s killing him and right now, what’s going on in the White House is nothing but pointing a finger.”
Mr Trump has not given any indications of accepting the election after Mr Biden is expected to become the 46th president of the United States.
The Trump administration has called for a “shutdown” on both Saturday and Sunday, as the president-elect makes a national speech to the nation and begins choosing the first official positions for his incoming administration.
Mr Trump has not been seen in person since the election results were announced, but appeared in video footage from a golf course he was posing with the bride on her wedding day.
Mr Trump told club members he had “gone too far” to avoid a legal battle as he was competing with results in key states, adding that the election had been rigged and that he had “too much”.
His first official comments were made on Fox News on Sunday night, after which he tweeted “Mail-in Ballet Hoax!”
When asked what the president was asked to do after the presidency, Cohen said he would fight the election result even after Mr Biden’s inauguration in January – perhaps from the “Trump Network” or the media organization that was the target of the first election bid.
“Donald Trump can’t accept the fact that he lost. For him, it’s like calling him a loser, it’s the worst thing in the world you can call him,” Mr Cohen said.
“He will only fight until January, where he will have to go now, but he will leave the post to do things that will make it very difficult for the Biden administration.”
