The team for former Vice President Joe Biden, who has been declared the winner of the election and next President of the United States, has a plan if President Donald Trump does not want to leave the White House.
The team said that the president, who would not be the president if Biden wins, would be escorted from the White House, Fox News reported.
“As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide this election,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said.
“And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House,” he said.
President Trump and his team have insisted that if the legal votes are counted he will be declared the winner of the election.
President Trump does not have plans to immediately concede the election, despite Democratic nominee Joe Biden leading in key states that could deliver him enough electoral votes to declare him the winner of the 2020 presidential race, a senior aide told Fox News.
The aide told Fox News that the president’s counselors have been giving him advice in both directions, with some telling Trump that a concession is the correct thing to do, and others pushing him to continue to fight to ensure the vote was correct and legitimate.
“He warned about this for months,” an aide of the president said. “The media didn’t take it seriously, and now, here we are with the scenario.”
They said that the president “may ultimately concede” but “He’s just not there yet.” The aide said that they did not expect that day to be anytime soon.
“This election is not over,” Trump campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said on Friday.
“The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final,” he said. “Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail.”
“We prevailed in court on our challenge, but were deprived of valuable time and denied the transparency we are entitled to under state law,” he said. “In Nevada, there appear to be thousands of individuals who improperly cast mail ballots.”
“Finally, the President is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press. Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected,” he said.
And the president himself has vowed to continue to fight on even as Biden has been declared the winner.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” he said. “We will not allow corruption to steal such an important election—or any election for that matter. We can’t allow anyone to silence our voters or manufacture results.”
“This is a case where they’re trying to steal an election — trying to rig an election,” the president said of the election.
The president said he is “hearing horror stories, absolute horror stories, and we can’t let that happen to the United States of America.”
“It’s not a question of who wins, Republican or Democrat. Joe, myself,” the president insisted. “We can’t let that happen to our country. We can’t be disgraced by having something like this happen.”
“So it will be hopefully cleared up maybe soon. I hope soon, but it’ll probably go through a process, a legal process, and as you know, I’ve claimed certain states and he’s claiming states. So we can both claim the states,” he said.
