Donald Trump said for the first time on Thursday that he would be leaving office.
He told reporters that he would leave office if the electoral college makes President-elect Joe Biden’s victory official.
Asked by a reporter if he would leave the White House if Biden is declared the winner on December 14 when the electoral college meets, Trump said, “Certainly I will, and you know that. I will and, you know that.” He then went on to say it would be hard to concede “because we know there was massive fraud.”
That was Thursday evening.
By Friday, he walked that back. Instead of leaving the White House when the electoral college makes Biden’s win official, Trump is now saying that he will leave when President-elect Biden provide evidence to show that his more than 80 million votes “were not fraudulently or illegally obtained.”
“Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous “80,000,000 votes” were not fraudulently or illegally obtained,” Trump tweeted. “When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!”
Of course, there was no evidence of fraud in the election. Donald Trump and his lawyers have failed to provide any evidence of widespread fraud. They aren’t even alleging fraud when they go in front of a judge in court.
