Donald Trump Speaks After His Defeat
Trump has made numerous allegations of election fraud since the vote without providing any evidence.
The president has just made his first public reference to the election,
days after his rival Joe Biden was projected as the winner by US networks.
Speaking about the coronavirus response, Trump said: “This administration will not be going to a lockdown… whatever happens in the future – who knows which administration it’ll be, I guess time will tell – but I can tell you this administration will not go to a lockdown.”
The president has so far refused to concede the election. Though he has taken to Twitter many times since the 3 November election to insist that he will contest the result, today’s Rose Garden event is only the second public appearance he has made since last week, and he took a muted tone to deliver his coronavirus update
President Trump has begun speaking at the White House, giving an update on Operation Warp Speed – the plan to create, make and distribute Covid-19 vaccines and treatments.
It’s the first time he’s spoken in public since Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election. As yet Trump has not admitted defeat.
