US Election: Donald Trump Hint On Conceding Defeat, Says He Won The Election
President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has capitulated on his earlier widely reported claims that he has finally admitted Joe Biden won the election but through “rigging”.
BIGPEN understands Trump said that he “concedes nothing” about the “rigged election” which, according to him is projected to have been won by Biden only by the ‘Fake News Media houses’.
Trump’s assertions comes as he continues to fight the results with legal challenges and after he called the election the “greatest theft in the history of America”.
According to him, the country’s constitution was badly shattered and violated in the 2020 election which was tainted in favour of his arc-rival, Biden and wondered why some media houses keep thinking Biden would ascend the presidency with the ‘skewed and rigged elections’.
“Why does the Fake News Media continuously assume that Joe Biden will ascend to the Presidency, not even allowing our side to show, which we are just getting ready to do, how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 Election. It was attacked, perhaps like never before!
A report in US SUN says the President appeared to have finally accepted that Biden was the victor when he used the words “he won” for the first time – albeit by then saying “because the Election” was rigged.
But it wasn’t long before he backtracked and made it clear that he wasn’t conceding anything and “we have a long way to go”.
His initial apparent concession came when he once again took aim at Dominion Voting Systems, a technology used by most states, including Michigan and Georgia.
“From large numbers of Poll Watchers that were thrown out of vote counting rooms in many of our States, to millions of ballots that have been altered by Democrats, only for Democrats, to voting after the Election was over, to using Radical Left owned Dominion Voting Systems, turned down by Texas and many others because it was not good or secure, those responsible for the safeguarding of our Constitution cannot allow the Fake results of the 2020 Mail-In Election to stand. The World is watching!”, Trump wrote on his verified twitter handle on Sunday.
His tweets, however, were tagged by Twitter as disputed.
A former top aide to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a lobbyist for the company – which also employs a one who worked for Republicans Dick Cheney and John Boehner.
“He won because the Election was Rigged,” the President tweeted.
“NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!”
With a White House official event telling NBC news “It looks like it” when asked if Trump had conceded, it appeared as President had in fact grudgingly admitted defeat.
But as his words became widely reported, Trump soon hit back with another furious tweet in which he emphatically declared: “I concede NOTHING!”
The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in a half-dozen battleground states and on Friday suffered setbacks in Arizona, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
In Arizona, the Trump campaign dropped a legal challenge in Maricopa County, acknowledging that Joe Biden’s lead was too large for the ballots in question to swing the results in the president’s favor.
Meanwhile in Michigan, a judge turned down Trump supporters’ request to block ballot certification in Detroit, which helped carry Joe Biden’s win in the state.
And Pennsylvania’s secretary of state declined to order a recount—required only if Trump were trailing by less than .5 percent of votes—in 67 counties.
The president on Friday spoke with conservative media outlets including Fox News, suggesting that he would only admit defeat after he has explored all his legal options.
Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera, who spoke with Trump on the phone, said, “He told me he was a realist, he told me he would do the right thing.”
Rivera said he got the impression that “if the process went against [Trump] and he was satisfied that every legitimate vote had been counted and every illegitimate vote had been thrown out … he would surrender.”
Trump says ‘time will tell’ who’ll win election and vows US WON’T lockdown while he’s in power in 1st speech.
