Trump says he has not ‘accepted losing’ the 2020 presidential election

Former US President Donald Trump on Monday (June 21, local time) said that he has not “accepted to lose” the 2020 presidential election, according to the Washington Examiner.

“I have never admitted to losing,” Trump said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. He added: “No, I have never [referred to] the word ‘lose,’ and I have never accepted to lose.”

Months after the November 2020 presidential election, Mr. Trump refused to admit he lost. He argued that he had been stolen the presidency by the Democrats.

“My focus right now is on ensuring a smooth, orderly and smooth transition of power,” Trump added at the time.

Also in the June 21 interview, Mr. Trump told host David Brody that if the 2020 election had been falsified due to fraud, any decision on his reinstatement would be dependent on the American public or possibly on politicians.

“If that election is rigged, then people will have to make their own decisions. It doesn’t depend on me. It will depend on the public. [And] maybe it depends on the politicians. I don’t think there has ever been a case like this where hundreds of thousands of votes were found. So we’ll see what happens,” Trump said.

Mr Trump also said he was “disappointed” that former Vice President Mike Pence, during a federal bipartisan meeting on January 6, did not turn some electoral votes back to state legislatures for review. Mr. Trump surmised that if Mr. Pence had done that, the US would probably have another president in office now.

“Yes, I have always liked Mike, and I am very disappointed that he did not transfer [the electoral vote] back to the [state] legislatures… I felt he had the right to […] Electoral College votes] back [the states], and he should have moved it back. That is my opinion. I think you’ve discovered that you could very well have a different total at this point if he had moved [the electoral votes] back to [state legislatures],” Trump told the host. David Brody show.

Later, when asked if he wanted to be speaker of the House in 2022, Mr.

“Yes, I’ve heard that story, and it’s been coming up more and more, but it’s not something I’ve ever thought of, but there’s certainly a lot of stories about it,” Trump said. “I have a good relationship with [Congressman] Kevin [McCarthy], and hopefully, we will do things in the traditional way.”

“You know, we’ve always been told about free and fair elections. [But], it turns out they weren’t [elections] free, and they weren’t [elections] fair, and the world is watching. So I’ve heard the story of [my becoming speaker of the House in 2022], but that’s not what I was thinking about,” Trump said.

Earlier, also according to the Washington Examiner, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy in an interview with Fox News on June 16 said that former President Trump would like to see him succeed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. while the congressman representing the state of California is pushing for Mr. Trump to run for re-election to the White House.

“You know, I’ve talked to President Trump many times. He told me he wanted me to be speaker of the House, and I think he should be president,” McCarthy told Fox News host Brian Kilmeade.

Mr. Trump has only indicated that his immediate focus will be on helping Republicans regain majority seats in the House and Senate in the midterm elections later next year.
