United States President Donald Trump said today that he will leave the White House if Joe Biden's presidential victory is officially confirmed, despite reiterating that he does not admit his own defeat.
Asked if he would leave the White House in the event that the high voters' college confirmed Democrat Joe Biden's victory, Trump said: “Of course I will. And you know this".
However, he added: "If you do, you will be making a mistake and it will be very difficult to accept."
This week, the United States General Services Administration found that Joe Biden is the "apparent winner" of the presidential election, 'paving the way' for the formal transition that was being blocked by the Trump administration.
The Electoral College is made up of 538 members elected by the states according to their population. The winning candidate in each state, even by a single vote, guarantees all representatives of that state, with the exception of Nebraska and Maine.
The next President of the United States takes office on January 20, 2021.
