When asked by a reporter about leaving the White House if Biden was declared the winner on December 14, Trump said, “Of course I do, you know.” “I will, you know.”
“It’s the hardest thing to accept because we know there’s massive fraud,” Trump said without evidence.
“On whether we can move this tool quickly or not – because time is not on our side, everything else is on our side, the facts are on our side, which is a huge fraud.”
Announcing Biden as the winner, the President erroneously said that the Electoral College had “made a mistake, the reason for this election was fraud”. Trump was outraged at the journalist for emphasizing his remarks. “Don’t talk to me like that. I’m the president of the United States. Never talk to the president like that,” he said.
Thursday is the first time Trump has taken questions from reporters since the election.
This includes falsely arguing in his election night speech that he had already been re-elected, had already won states that were in the air, and that his opponents were committing fraud.
In response, Biden’s campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement earlier this month that “the United States government has the potential to bring the aggressors out of the White House.”
The GSA letter noted the administration’s first step in accepting Trump’s defeat. However, moments after the letter was reported, the President tweeted: “Our case will continue to be tough, we will continue to fight well, and I believe we will win!”
