Joe Biden ‘s team warned Friday that if he continues to admit defeat in America’s knife-edge race, President Donald Trump could be escorted from the White House.
After pushing ahead in the primary states of Pennsylvania and Georgia, Democratic challenger Biden is edging towards the presidency White House.
Yet Trump has made it clear that he is not willing to admit it, launching unsubstantiated charges of voting fraud and wrongly alleging that he was tricked out of re-election.
“As we said on July 19th, this election will be determined by the American people. And the government of the United States is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House said Andrew Bates, spokesperson for the Biden movement.
In a July Fox News interview, Trump declined to agree to acknowledging the election results and a peaceful transition of power if he lost.
Biden opened up a 9,000-vote lead over the Republican incumbent in Pennsylvania with tens of thousands of votes left to be counted, many of them from overwhelmingly Democratic areas, real-time state election returns shows.
In order to push 77-year-old Biden past the magic number of 270 votes in the Electoral College, which decides the presidency, Pennsylvania and its 20 election votes will be enough.
In Georgia, a state once seen as reliably Republican, which declared Friday that it will recount the ballots, Biden has also taken a razor-thin lead.
There was no word as of late morning about Biden’s movements on Friday.
He last spoke on Thursday afternoon when, in his home town of Wilmington, Delaware, he told reporters that he had “no question” that he would be proclaimed the election winner.
The US Secret Service strengthened its defensive bubble around the former vice president with his win looking highly plausible, The Washington Post published Friday.White House
