President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, tried to persuade him to give in to the election, CNN reported late on Saturday.
The network, citing two sources, said that Kushner, a top White House adviser, discussed the topic with the president following Joe Biden’s victory earlier in the day.
The move comes after Trump refused to give in a few minutes after elections called for by major networks – insisting that “this election is far from over” and claiming that Biden was “in a hurry. Fake gold is the winner “after Pennsylvania was called on to the Democratic Party.
“I won’t rest until the Americans get the honest votes they deserve and the Democrats demand,”; Trump said in a statement just before noon, promising that the campaign’s legal battle combat “cheating” is supposed to begin in earnest on Monday.
Trump’s team has so far been largely unsuccessful in giving court challenges to how to test votes in some states.
Biden’s deputy campaign director, Kate Bedingfield, said Saturday night that there has been no contact between the opponents or any of their representatives since the race was called earlier in the day, CNN reported.
