Trump Declares He Concedes ‘Nothing’ After Appearing To Accept Election Defeat

President Donald Trump is making it clear that he is not conceding the presidential election to President-elect Joe Biden.

In a tweet on Sunday morning, Trump appeared to accept that Biden won the election.

He wrote, “[Biden] won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!”

However, hours later, he tweeted a clarification to state that he was not accepting defeat. Rather he claimed he was referring to news outlets’ decision to call the race for Biden.

“[Biden] only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA,” Trump wrote, adding, “I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION!”

The Associated Press and other news outlets called the race for Biden on Nov. 7 as he appeared to win in enough states to secure the necessary 270 electoral votes. 

However, Trump has not conceded the election and repeatedly falsely claimed that widespread voter fraud swung the election in Biden’s favor.

In a statement, Trump said, “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over.”

He went on to claim without evidence that Biden’s campaign “wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters.”

Last week, he blasted the idea that news outlets calling the winner of the election, as he tweeted, “Since when does the Lamestream Media call who our next president will be?”

Despite his claims, there has been no evidence of widespread fraud that swung the results of the election in Biden’s favor.

  1. The best day of my political life has not yet happened. That’s the day dumb ass concedes. Donald, when you have 232 electoral votes and Biden has 306 votes, you got your ass kicked. Like all those Republicans said 4 years ago, ” we won, get over it ” So for all you losers here it comes, ” you lost get over it”

  2. “Of course it was Rigged! How does Biden go from 20 people attending his rally’s, to winning half the country’s votes?!” Dave

    Of course! The best way to prop up your opinion is to use anecdotal evidence. Very smart of you, Dave.

    “And the rigging made sure he ‘won’ by only the slightest of margins…just a hair above Trump! That was done to make it a more plausible showing that he actually “won”.” Dave

    It must be such a comfort going through life totally oblivious to logic. I wish I could manage that.

    “Come on people, admit it, you KNOW it was rigged!” Dave

    Your psychologist called, Dave. Your appointment is changed to the same time tomorrow.

  3. I remember all those people at the Biden rallies. All those people lining the roads and waving Biden signs as he drove by. Old brain dead Joe only got votes from lies and computer software.
    Anyone here wants to do more mask-wearing and lockdowns? if you do your a tool. Biden will screw everything up and usher in 2021 crap.

  4. Of course it was Rigged! How does Biden go from 20 people attending his rally’s, to winning half the country’s votes?! And the rigging made sure he ‘won’ by only the slightest of margins…just a hair above Trump! That was done to make it a more plausible showing that he actually “won”. But I seriously doubt it. Because even today, the “roar” for his “win” is barely a mouse squeak in both public support and Washington DC! Come on people, admit it, you KNOW it was rigged!

  5. “With all the questions over the method of counting especially here in PA” Sharal

    I am confused, Sharal.

    With nearly ALL of “the questions over” counting thrown out of court or dismissed, how many questions remain? Enough to overturn a valid election?

  6. After 4 years you media still can’t resist putting words in or your interpretations of what our POTUS says. Wishful thinking won’t make him say it. It’s not over till he’s exhausted every legal means afforded him as President and a candidate for re-election. His term runs until 12:01PM January 20, 2021, not a a moment before. I pray it will contiue until January 20, 2025.

  7. Any & all allegations of vote or election fraud need to be addressed and either discounted or fixed. Half of America voted for Trump. They deserve to know if they lost fair and square. I tend to think Trump lost. Unless the fraud was at the computational / tablulation level. But it must be transparent. Had the media not been 100% in the tank for Biden, had social media not deboosted and canceled critical conservative voices, had Trump himself not flubbed the Coronavirus response so badly, he would have been re-elected. The loss is not 100% on Trump, but a fair share of it is. 1 year of Biden and 3 years of Harris will go by quickly. And if the right can find a better champion than Trump, his ideas and values will carry the day. He was an imperfect fighter who did much good in the 4 years he was here. The oligarchs of the Republican party have now completed their take over of the Democratic party. Good riddance.
    The right now has free speech, labor, social media transparency, ending the overseas wars and America First. That the left abandoned these will be seen as an error of the ages. They owned these issues for generations. And the wokesters just walked away from them. Incredible.

  8. Gotta love how IJR writer deliberately twisted his words. Biden did not win until the electorate says who won. With all the questions over the method of counting especially here in PA because of an inept Governor Biden is getting way ahead of himself.
