Trump acknowledges that there will be a 'Biden administration,' effectively admitting he lost while still calling for the election to be overturned
  • In effect, President Donald Trump admitted on Friday that he lost the 2020 election when he tweeted about the "Biden administration."
  • The president, however, continued to push for the result of the election to be overturned.
  • "Now that the Biden Administration will be a scandal plagued mess for years to come, it is much easier for the Supreme Court of the United States to follow the Constitution and do what everybody knows has to be done," Trump said.
  • Trump has repeatedly pushed the baseless claim that President-elect Joe Biden won due to mass fraud and has refused to concede.
In short, Trump is spending his final days in office attempting to invalidate millions of votes, and breaking from a hallmark of American democracy by refusing to concede and help foster a peaceful transfer of power.
