Thursday was the first time Trump has taken questions from reporters since the election.
Since US media outlets projected Biden as the winner earlier this month, Trump has refused to accept the results, instead of pushing conspiracies that his second term is being stolen and launching a legal effort to overturn results.
During the tense press exchange, Trump, for the first time stated he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for President-elect Joe Biden, but still continued with his voter fraud allegations saying he’s not prepared to concede.
“Certainly I will, and you know that,” Trump said when asked by a reporter about leaving the White House if Biden is declared the winner on December 14.
“I will and, you know that.”
“It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud,” Trump said.
“As to whether or not we can get this apparatus moving quickly — because time isn’t on our side, everything else is on our side, facts are on our side, this was a massive fraud.”
Pressed by a reporter on his comments, Trump snapped at the reporter. “You are just a lightweight “Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the President of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the president that way,” he said.
