President Donald Trump‘s national security advisor, Robert O’Brien, acknowledged that Joe Biden won the presidential election during the Soufan Center’s Global Security Forum. O’Brien promises a peaceful transition if it is determined that Biden won the election.
During the forum that was streamed online, choosing his words carefully O’Brien said: “if the Biden-Harris ticket is determined to be the winner – and, obviously, things look that way now – we’ll have a very professional transition with the National Security Council, no doubt about it.”
President Trump insists that he won the election – yet, contradicts himself almost daily by saying the election was rigged to favor Biden. Trump says he won’t concede and is putting up a fight. Trump has been fundraising money to cover litigation costs.
There are laws that govern the recount process. For instance, in Wisconsin voters can request a recount only on ballot questions and not candidate races. In order for President Trump to be granted a recount in Wisconsin, he would have to pay almost $8 million dollars.
Will Trump put his money where his mouth is?
