President Donald Trump has yet to concede the presidential election, but on Sunday he came close to acknowledging that he lost in a tweet.
“He won because the Election was Rigged,“ Trump tweeted. “NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!“
Trump’s tweet was posted with a clip of Fox News’ Jesse Watters casting doubt on the outcome of the election.
In the 12 days since the election, Trump has consistently claimed victory, while baselessly asserting that Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats had cheated to make it appear that he won. Sunday’s tweet, though not clearly worded, suggested Biden was the victor.
Biden garnered 306 votes in the Electoral College, to Trump’s 232.
