US President Donald Trump insists he will not back down or concede the election, regardless of Joe Biden reaching 270 electoral votes. According to reports by CNN Trump maintains that he is going to fight and he believes that there has been voter fraud when coming to the counting of the ballots.
A statement released by Trump's team said: "This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process."
Trump has said that he will do whatever it takes to remain in charge at the White House.
According to reports, sources close to the White House have said that senior officials inside the White House have begun to back away from Trump. This is since the returns from Georgia and Pennsylvania show that the president will probably not win re-election.
"It's over," one of them said. One of the key advisors in the race said that only God knows what Trump will do next since he has been crying foul and election fraud in the White House briefing room.
President Trump has said he’s going to “fight on for the America people and the integrity of election process.”
