Trump says he’ll leave office peacefully if he loses in November
“Certainly, if I don’t win, I don’t win,” Trump said Friday.
I don’t know if I am relieved or alarmed, honestly.
In an interview on “The Daily Show,” Biden warned Trump could “try to steal this election” by attempting to suppress votes, pointing to the president’s fervent opposition to mail-in voting and his unfounded allegations that widespread mail-in voting was ripe with fraud.
But that’s what Republicans always do. Remember, they hate, Hate, HATE elections and democracy. But I interrupted, do continue.
Host Trevor Noah then asked the vice president if he’d given any consideration to what would happen if Trump refused to leave office at the end of his term, to which Biden replied that he had.
“I was so damn proud to hear that four chiefs of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of Trump, and you have so many rank-and-file military personnel saying, ‘Whoa we’re not a military state, this is not who we are,’” Biden told Noah, a reference to rebukes of Trump for his attempts to militarize the response to nationwide protests.
“I promise you, I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” Biden said.
I hope you are right, Joe, but I would still carry a blow gun with Thorazine and a mallet on inauguration day. Just in case.
