President Trump addressed throngs of supporters at a rally in Washington, DC on Wednesday, as Congress was preparing to certify the election win of rival President-elect Joe Biden.
Saying that the 2020 presidential election was rigged against him, he vowed not to give in even as Inauguration Day is just two weeks away.
“We will never concede,” Trump told the cheering crowd. “You don’t concede when there’s theft.
“This year, they rigged an election. They rigged it like they’ve never rigged an election before,” Trump continued, referring to what he calls “fake news media” and social media companies.
“And by the way, last night they didn’t do a bad job,” he added, referring to run-off elections in Georgia deciding the fate of Senate control.
One Democratic candidate, Rev. Raphael Warnock, has already been declared the winner of his race, and the other, Jon Ossoff, is leading in the polls by a tight margin.
