Update: Well, like we said earlier, “we doubt Trump would agree with the left-wing characterization of tweets as a concession, ” and of course just an hour after tweeting that Biden “won because the election was rigged,” which most liberal and anti-Trump media defined as an “apparent concession,” Trump followed up with another tweet – which has yet to be censored by Twitter – in which he explained how he feels: “He won only in the eyes of FAKE NEWS MEDIA. I do not concede ANYTHING! We have a long way to go. It was a RIGGED ELECTION!

In a tweet that Bloomberg and various other mainstream media immediately called the President’s “apparent concession” shortly before 8 a.m. ET, Trump – who has so far refused to acknowledge Biden’s victory – tweeted that Joe Biden “won because the election was rigged.” “It was his 9th tweet in the morning and the first time Trump had acknowledged a Joe Biden victory, even in a fleeting comment.
In the tweet, Trump criticized the secrecy of the process and the involvement of the Dominion vote compilation company, while criticizing the “false and silent” media:
NO OBSERVERS OR VOTING OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a private radical leftist company Dominion with a bad reputation and gear that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won a lot! ), The Fake & Silent Media, & more! “
In a follow-up tweet, Trump also criticized the “mechanical issues” of election night which he said “were really THEY getting caught stealing votes. However, they did a lot without getting caught. His conclusion: “Postal elections are a bad joke!”
Both tweets, like most of the president’s recent election tweets, were flagged by Twitter as containing disputed allegations of voter fraud.
We doubt, however, whether Trump would agree with the left’s characterization of the tweets as a concession: as recently as Saturday, Trump tweeted that “We’re going to WIN!” .
The Trump campaign has launched numerous lawsuits aimed at canceling, auditing, and recounting various state votes. So far, campaign legal challenges have not claimed that the software used to compile the votes affected the outcome.
In a recent conversation with Geraldo Rivera, Trump said he would “do the right thing” but wanted to see “what states are doing” by certifying their election results in the coming weeks.
He also told Washington Examiner columnist Byron York that he thought “maybe” he lost, before ultimately dismissing the idea. Trump said it was important to file legal challenges to examine the fraud allegations. “Never bet against me,” Trump said.
Alex Jones is delivering perhaps his most powerful speech to hundreds of thousands of patriots who support President Trump at the United States Supreme Court.
