‘If I Don’t Win, I Don’t Win’: Trump Claims He’ll Leave Peacefully If He Loses In November

During an interview with Fox News host Harris Faulkner, Donald Trump claimed that he will leave office peacefully if he loses the election in November.

“Certainly, if I don’t win, I don’t win,” he told Faulkner in an interview that aired Friday. If he doesn’t win the election, Trump continued, “you go on, do other things.”

Still, he told Faulker that if he loses, “I think it would be a very bad thing for our country.”

Trump’s comments come after former Vice President Joe Biden raised concerns about Trump trying to steal the election.

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.

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.
