Biden Campaign Says 'Trespassers' Can Be Escorted From the White House If Trump Refuses to Concede

Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign has said it does not matter whether President Donald Trump concedes the election or not, as America waits for confirmation that Biden will be the nation's 46th president.

Biden is ahead in the key swing states of Georgia and Pennsylvania, his lead widening as more absentee mailing ballots are counted from the urban and suburban Democratic strongholds of both states. Losing either would mean that Trump cannot reach the 270 electoral college votes needed to secure his second term in office.

But the Trump campaign is resorting to conspiracy theories and litigation to try and stop Biden's victory. Sources inside the White House told CNN Thursday that the president has no intention of conceding to his Democratic rival.

Asked for their response to developments, Biden's campaign released a brief and uncompromising statement. "As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House."

The Trump campaign is continuing to send out combative statements claiming—without evidence—widespread electoral fraud against a sitting president.

The campaign has filed multiple lawsuits in several states to try and stop vote counting and challenge the validity of ballots, and has also said it will demand a recount in Wisconsin which went narrowly to Biden.

"This election is not over," the Trump campaign general counsel, Matt Morgan, said in a statement Thursday morning. "The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final."

Morgan said the Trump campaign is confident there are "improperly harvested" ballots in Georgia, and claimed without elaborating that there had been "many irregularities in Pennsylvania." In Nevada, Morgan claimed individuals had incorrectly cast mail-in ballots.

"Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected," Morgan said.

The president, meanwhile, continued tweeting to followers despite many of his posts being flagged as misleading by Twitter. The president posted tweets maligning the city of Philadelphia—mail-in ballots from which are putting Biden ahead in the race for the key state of Pennsylvania—and attacking Twitter.

"I easily WIN the Presidency of the United States with LEGAL VOTES CAST," the president incorrectly claimed. Votes are still being counted and the race has not officially been called for either candidate.

"The OBSERVERS were not allowed, in any way, shape, or form, to do their job and therefore, votes accepted during this period must be determined to be ILLEGAL VOTES. U.S. Supreme Court should decide!" Twitter flagged the post as misleading.
