As the incumbent US President Donald Trump spent his thanksgiving repeating his baseless claims of voter fraud and irregularities, he said on Thursday that he will leave the White House if the Electoral College vote on December 14 formalizes President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election – even as the incumbent maintained that it would be a mistake. Since the international and local media projected Biden’s win in the election, it was the first time that Trump took questions from the media.

With no credible evidence to back their claims, his legal team, and close aides, have been doing their best to cast doubt on the election results. After holding a teleconference with the American military leads across the world, Donald Trump spoke to news reporters in the Diplomatic Reception Room in the White House. The incumbent thanked them for their service and jokingly asked them not to eat too much turkey on thanksgiving.

After that, he turned his attention to the outcome of the presidential race following the call. Trump repeatedly denounced the election officials in Pennsylvania and Georgia’s battleground states, where Biden has been declared the victor. Despite Biden’s win in the White House race, Trump noted on Thursday that this might not be his last thanksgiving in the oval office. Moreover, he insisted that there had been massive fraud, even though US election officials and international observers have refuted his claims.

Meanwhile, in a surprising move, Trump gave the go-ahead to the GSA, a federal government agency that plays an important part in the transition of power, to start the smooth transition and “do whatever needs to be done.” However, the incumbent refused to concede to Biden’s victory and said that he will be traveling to Georgia on December 5 to rally Republican supporters ahead of the two senate run-off seats that could determine who controls the Senate.

Political experts suggest that one reason behind Republican lawmakers rallying behind Donald Trump was to keep the voters energized ahead of the Senate run-offs. Referring to the electoral college vote to be held on December 14, the incumbent made it clear that he would never formally concede, even though Trump said he would leave the Presidential office.

When the news reporters asked about attending Biden’s inauguration, he replied that he would not like to share his answer yet. But Thursday’s meeting showed signs that Trump was coming to terms with his loss in the election. He further urged the media reporters not to let the incoming administration take the credit for coronavirus vaccines because “it was me who pushed for the officials for the vaccines.” Meanwhile, states across the country have already started to certify the results, and if there are any pending issues, the state officials are bound to resolve them before December 8.
