– Trump is not prepared to concede: CNN
American cable TV station CNN is reporting that US President Donald Trump has not prepared a concession speech and has no intention of surrendering the presidency.
While Joe Biden has edged ahead in the key battleground states of Georgia, Pennsylvania and Nevada, CNN says Trump is relying on the robust support of senior aides and his grown-up sons – Donald Trump Junior and Eric – to attempt to challenge the results in the courts.
CNN says top aides, including chief of staff Mark Meadows who has just tested positive to coronavirus, are feeding the President untrue claims about the election being stolen from him.
Trump did not appear in public on Friday, US time, but released a flurry of late-night tweets and retweets about mail-in and absentee ballots after Joe Biden addressed the nation.
