Democrats have been trying to foment hysteria that Donald Trump won’t leave the White House if he’s defeated in the November election.
President Trump shut down those accusations on Friday, confirming that Democrats’ fears are baseless. “Certainly, if I don’t win, I don’t win,” he said in a Friday Fox interview, continuing that he will “go on, do other things” if he loses in November.
Donald Trump has never indicated that he won’t surrender the White House if the American people don’t vote him back into office, but that hasn’t stopped Democrats from hyperventilating about the possibility.
In a Wednesday interview on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” Wednesday night, presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden was asked if he has considered the possibility of Trump refusing to vacate the White House.
Biden responded that he had considered it, and said that he’s “absolutely convinced” that the military will intervene if necessary. “I promise you, I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” Biden declared.
Biden also fomented further controversy by claiming that his “single greatest concern,” was that “the president is going to try to steal this election.”
Biden isn’t the only one to theorize that Trump won’t peacefully turn control over to Biden if he wins. Trump’s “Art of the Deal” co-author, Tony Schwartz, recently said that “anything goes” for “psychopath” Trump.
Schwartz argued that Trump will not leave the White House if he loses the election because giving up is “unthinkable” for him, continuing that he has “no doubt that Trump will do everything he possibly can,” to “try to steal this election.”
White House responds
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh responded to Biden’s bombshell accusation, saying that “this is just another brainless conspiracy theory from Joe Biden as he continues to try to undermine confidence in our elections.”
“President Trump has been clear that he will accept the results of the 2020 election,” Murtaugh continued.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also dismissed Biden’s fears, saying that “I think that’s a ridiculous proposition.”
“This president’s looking forward to November,” she continued. “This president’s hard at work for the American people, and leave it to Democrats to go out there and grandstand and level these conspiracy theories.”
