United States President Donald Trump on Friday at the White House said that time will tell if he remains president. The open ended statement leaves a doubt whether he will step down and make way for President elect Joe Biden. Trump has made little headway with lawsuits claiming counting irregularities after losing electoral votes in key states in the November 3rd election.
Trump supporters are expected to take to the streets on Saturday citing counting fraud as he mulls over a legal recourse on how to overthrow Biden. Biden further solidified his victory on Friday as results from Edison Research showed him winning Georgia, with his tally moving up from 290 to 306 electoral College votes, far more than the 270 needed to be elected president and above Trump’s 232. The 306 votes were equal to what Trump won in his 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton, which he then called a “landslide”.

After a week of the results and no on camera comments, Trump broke his silence. While speaking at a Rose Garden event to herald the imminent authorization of a coronavirus vaccine. Trump said that he would never again call for a lockdown to curb the virus’ spread. “Hopefully, the, the whatever happens in the future, who knows which administration it will be, I guess time will tell.”
Biden however is confident he will step into the White House in January 2020 and Trump will ultimately concede to defeat the mandate of the people of the US who have voted from the Democrat President.
