President Donald Trump said he will never concede after witnessing the “most corrupt election in American political history,”— regardless of the General Services Administration giving the go-ahead to Joe Biden to begin a transition to the White House on Nov. 30. This will give Biden access to national security briefings. Biden said in an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt outreach from members of the Trump administration has been “sincere.”
“They’re already working out my ability to get presidential daily briefs, we’re already working out meeting with the COVID team in the White House and how to not only distribute but get from a vaccine being distributed to a person able to get vaccinated, so I think we’re gonna not be so far behind the curve as we thought might be in the past.”
However, Trump tweeted he’s not going anywhere: “What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history? We are moving full speed ahead. Will never concede to fake ballots & Dominion.”
A spokesman for Dominion Voting Systems said the claims by Trump’s legal team is “crazy.”
“Let’s be very clear, our election system is run by local elected officials and nonpartisan poll watchers,” Dominion spokesman Michael Steel told Fox News. “We simply provide a tool to count the ballots and to print and count ballots. There is no way such a massive fraud could have taken place and there are no connections between our company and Venezuela, Germany, Barcelona, Kathmandu, whatever the latest conspiracy theory is.”
Trump is standing firm as you can hear in his speech on Dec. 2. Only a few media outlets reported it. Watch the video from the president.
Have you seen this?
John Yoo, a former legal advisor to the George W. Bush administration said Trump does not have to concede.
“He may never concede; he doesn’t have to concede,” said Yoo. “The thing about the American Constitution is that it doesn’t actually require the sitting president to do anything one way or the other…”
Trump will campaign in Georgia on Dec. 5 to help Republicans in the Senate runoff election. “I’m going on Saturday night. I’ll be in Georgia. We’ll have a tremendous crowd,” he told reporters. Trump nor any other president shouldn’t concede with all the questions surrounding the election.
