WASHINGTON – On Saturday, news channels and political outlets that were covering the 2020 Presidential Election called the race naming Joe Biden the President-elect but President Trump has not accepted that result.
Trump and some of the other Republican officials have continued to issue allegations of widespread voter fraud in this election which has led to it possibly being the first time in modern history that the loser does not issue a concession. Sportsbooks have taken this opportunity to place presidential odds on the matter.
Will Trump say concession next public address?
- No -400
- Yes +250
Legal sports betting sites are leaning heavily to the President not conceding the presidential election on his next address to Americans and there are top Republicans telling him not to.
“Don’t accept the media’s declaration,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Fox News with host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. “Don’t concede, Mr. President. Fight hard.”
Though it has been reported by various outlets that Biden has received more than the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the White House, the opposition simply does not believe in the results coming from the media or the states.
“What we need in the presidential race is to make sure every legal vote is counted, every recount is completed, and every legal challenge should be heard,” said Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) House Minority Leader. “Then, and only then, America will decide who won the race.”
The Trump campaign has engaged in many legal battles to contest the voting results and Trump himself has continued to make it obvious that he has no plans on accepting this defeat.
“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,” said Trump in a statement. “The simple fact is this election is far from over.”
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris both spoke on Saturday night in acknowledgment of the presumed election and have begun to move as such. Biden has also released his official transition website and stated he will launch his COVID-19 plan on Monday showing he indeed plans to move forward beginning work as President-elect with or without a concession from the 45th President.
