Admit it: You’re a little worried too. If somehow Trump DOESN’T steal the election, if the electoral college DOESN’T keep him in office, and he loses… He’s STILL not going anywhere. His base will riot. He’ll dig in and call the results FAKE. He’ll demand recount after recount, and call THOSE results fake. And months will pass with him sitting in the Oval Office, refusing to budge.
It’s a nightmare scenario that’s all too possible.
In a interview with Trevor Noah for The Daily Show, Joe Biden warned that, indeed, Trump would likely try to steal the election.
“It’s my greatest concern. My single greatest concern,” Biden said. “This president is going to try to steal this election. This is the guy who said all mail-in ballots are fraudulent — voting by mail — while he sits behind a desk in the Oval Office and writes his mail-in ballot to vote in a primary.”
Noah also asked Biden if he’s thought about what would happen if he wins but Trump refuses to leave office.
“Yes, I have,” Biden said, before praising military leaders who’ve criticized Trump’s handling of the protests over George Floyd’s murder.
“I was so damn proud. You have four chiefs of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of Trump, and you have so many rank-and-file military personnel saying, ‘Whoa, we’re not a military state. This is not who we are,’” Biden said. “I promise you, I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the Whtie House with great dispatch.”
From your lips to God’s ears, Mr Vice President.
