Trump refuses to concede after Biden declared president-elect

Donald Trump is showing no signs of conceding, after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the US presidential election.

“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over,” Trump said..



The simply fact is that this election is over. The final votes will continue to be counted in dozens of states, but there is no way for Trump to come back in the presidential race at this point.

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated,” Trump said.

The president’s reelection campaign has filed lawsuits in multiple battleground states this week, but several of them have already been dismissed, and Biden’s team has dismissed them as “meritless.”

It’s also worth noting that Trump does not have to concede, although it is considered a hallmark of the peaceful transfer of power. The fact of the matter is, Biden has the electoral votes to win the White House, and he will be sworn in as president in January.
