Trump tweeted, “He won because the Election was Rigged,” before continuing to blame his loss on debunked theories about the election.
In a follow-up tweet shortly after, Trump stood by his false belief he may be able to win the election and refused to concede. “I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go,” Trump tweeted.
The tweets from Trump followed a Saturday spent golfing and tweeting similar false conspiracy theories, and driving by a crowd of his supporters who gathered in Washington to protest the election results on the basis of his lies and propaganda.
“Well, like I accept it as a further confirmation of the reality that Joe Biden won the election — and not through any of the rest of that tweet, not through fraud or anything else the President is baselessly alleging. He won because he got more votes, OK, that’s why he won,” Klain said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “He got more votes in the popular vote by a lot, and he won the same number of electoral votes that President Trump himself called a landslide four years ago. But look, if the President is prepared to begin to recognize that reality, that’s positive. Donald Trump’s Twitter feed doesn’t make Joe Biden president or not president. The American people did that.”
