Elections 2020: Donald Trump–LOSER

Donald Trump has told TV host Geraldo Rivera he’ll “do the right thing” after losing the election, as his Arizona voter fraud lawsuit and his “fraud” hotline have been canned.

The Fox News commentator said on Friday he spoke to the president – who has not yet conceded to President-elect Joe Biden– in a “heartfelt call.”

“Just had heartfelt phone call w friend Trump who said he’s a ‘realist’ who’ll do the ‘right thing,” Rivera tweeted.

“But he wants to see ‘what states do in terms of certification (sic) (etc)’ He sounded committed to fighting for every vote & if he loses, talking more about all he’s accomplished.”

Trump and his re-election campaign have filed multiple lawsuits claiming that voter fraud is what prevented him from winning the race.

On Friday, lawyers for the Trump campaign dropped their lawsuit in Arizona that was looking for a recount of all the ballots cast on Election Day.

The campaign filed the lawsuit last Saturday, claiming that some voters were confused last week and nervous that their ballots weren’t counted.

Trump’s team was seeking a hand review of any ballots that were flagged by voting machines as overvotes – alleging that thousands of votes could turn for Trump.

The Biden campaign said in a statement regarding the news: “The Trump campaign’s lawsuit was frivolous and their motion to withdraw any claims of relief related to the presidential campaign confirms that this was nothing more than a waste of time.”

“President-Elect Joe Biden won Arizona, and now it’s time to unite the country and move forward.”

On Friday, the Trump campaign shut down a “voter fraud hotline” it set up for people to call in and report instances of alleged fraud.

The hotline was flooded with prank calls, according to CNN.

The campaign reportedly dedicated an entire conference room for staffers to take calls on the hotline, but those who called in were apparently mocking it.

While the hotline was shut down, people who’d like to report voter fraud to the campaign can now submit it online via a web form to Trump’s team.

On Friday, Trump addressed a socially distanced crowd in the White House Rose Garden about Operation Warp Speed on the administration’s coronavirus vaccine production efforts.

The president didn’t concede to Biden, but did acknowledge that there might be a new administration in the future.
