Trump: “We will never admit” defeat

US President Donald Trump said today in front of his supporters who were celebrating that he would never admit defeat in the 2020 presidential election, citing widespread electoral fraud, just two weeks before President-elect Democrat Joe Bainte took office in the White House.

“We will never give up. We will never give up. “We will never admit it,” Trump said during a campaign-funded rally in the Ellipse Park area near the White House under a cloudy sky, claiming without evidence that “hundreds of thousands” of people attended the event. “We will stop the theft,” he said.

“We won this election and we won it widely,” he said, despite all the facts and the lack of evidence to support the electoral fraud case.

US: Congress Considers Biden Electoral College Results

The House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, which are holding a rare joint session today, have begun examining the results of the College of Electors, which show that Democrat Joe Biden defeated Republican President Donald Trump.

A number of Republicans from both houses have said they will challenge the certification of a handful of states in a last-ditch effort to either deny Biden victory or delay certification of his victory.

Other Republicans have said the effort is wrong and could hurt the nation in the long run. They called for swift certification to pave the way for Biden to be sworn in as president on January 20. Any challenge is expected to be rejected by the House of Representatives and the Senate.
