Trump May Barricade Himself In The Oval Office, Refuse To Come Out Despite Defeat
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has won the US presidency beating President Donald Trump, US media projected on Saturday. The victory was sealed after Biden won several key battleground states previously claimed by Trump in 2016.
But Donald Trump is not ready to concede defeat. Earlier on Friday, it was reported by Vanity Fair that Trump has told sources close to him that he may refuse to come out of the Oval Office. As soon as it was getting clear that Trump’s chances in the elections are bleak, he started demanding a stop to vote counts in some states terming the process rigged. However, it is clear that it could not have any effect on the election results. As a matter of fact, some judges have remarked that they don’t know if the cases are filed by some “mad men”.
Instead of showing reality to Trump, he acquaintances have fed him with conspiracy theories. Some people thought that Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump could talk him out of the situation, on the contrary, the family of Trump is also spreading falsities about elections and saying that the vote has been stolen.
On the other hand Joe Biden is not worried about the fact that Trump is not conceding his loss. His spokesperson Andrew Bates said that Biden is not worried that Trump may barricade himself in the Oval Office. Not because they don’t think that Trump is mad, but security will take him out of the premises. “The U.S. government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House,” he said.
