Comments Off on Trump says he will be president for another four years during White House Christmas reception
US President Donald Trump, in his usual desperate move to remain in power talked during a Christmas reception held at the White House on Tuesday night, December 1, 2020, he talked about spending four more years in office without clarifying whether he was referring to January 2021 or January 2025.
Ever since President Trump lost the November 3 election, he has indulged in propagating several conspiracy theories to discredit the election of president-elect Joe Biden, not to mention his endless Twitter rants.
According to reports, Trump could hold an event possibly on Inauguration Day where he will reveal his future plans as he is expected to hint at a run for 2024, leaving the door open to a comeback campaign.
Several high-ranking members of the Republican Party including the former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie have urged him to concede defeat but Trump insists that he won the election thereby casting doubt in the minds of other GOP Members who have refused to acknowledge Joe Biden as President-elect for fear of Donald Trump.
Reports from Washington indicate Trump could announce a 2024 run when he does finally acknowledge the results even though he will dismiss the 2020 race as fraudulent.
He said: “It’s been an amazing four years,” Trump told the room, filled with many people not wearing masks despite public health officials’ guidance amid the Covid-19 pandemic, according to CNN.
“We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.” Trump added.
Trump as usual insisted he defeated Joe Biden, saying, “But they don’t like that.” He also asked if people were watching the “fraud hearings” with his legal team — referring to acts by his attorney Rudy Giuliani has held with state legislatures in challenging the results of the election.
“Honestly, this is a disgrace,” Trump told the room.
In an interview on Sunday, November 29, Trump admitted that even if Biden is sworn-in as president, he will continue to maintain his stand that he (Trump) won the election.
