Trump Sets Conditions For Biden To Enter White House, Says He Can Only Do So If He Proves His Votes Were Legitimate


As the drama over the 2020 presidential election results continues, President Donald Trump has set the conditions under which former Vice President Joe Biden will be able to enter the White House. According to President Trump, Biden will only be able to enter the White House once he is able to prove that the 80 million votes that he got are legitimate.

The incumbent has refused to concede electoral defeat alleging that the election was rigged against him. Speaking on his favourite social media platform Twitter, President Donald Trump wrote,

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. When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the presumptive President-Elect after the media projected that he won the election with 306 votes to Trump’s 232 votes under the electoral college system used to elect the President and Vice President in the United States.

Trump and his supporters have filed several lawsuits across the country as they seek to overturn the results of the Presidential Elections.

However, the president has made some concessions to Biden despite insisting that he will not concede defeat. After more than two weeks since the election results, Trump recognised that there is a need for a Biden transition and recommended that the Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA) should implement the transition mechanism.

On Thanksgiving Day, the President said that he will leave the White House only if former Vice-President Joe Biden is formally confirmed as the winner of the 2020 election by the Electoral College. He, however, reiterated that the election is not yet over and that a lot of things will be happening behind the scenes between now and Jan. 20, 2021, the inauguration day for the next President of the United States.

The electors will cast their ballots for president and vice-president on December 14. The House and the Senate will convene for a joint session on Jan. 6 to count the electoral votes. The candidate that receives at least 270 out of 538 electoral votes becomes the next president.

It remains to be seen how the Trump Campaign’s lawsuits will fare in the courts and if the maverick President will be able to get another 4 years in the White House.
