However, a handful of people in the president’s circle doubt he will actually follow through on his threat.
An adviser said:
“He’s going to leave. He’s just lashing out.”
Trump has continued to be in denial about his election loss. He has alleged that Biden stole the election through widespread voter fraud.
The president has, however, failed to provide evidence to back his claims.
Meanwhile, members of the US electoral college have affirmed Joe Biden’s presidential election victory, one of the final steps required for him to take office.
According to Daily Mail, the president-elect’s electoral college win became official on Monday, December 14, with California’s votes pushing him over the 270 vote threshold.
In another report, a former United States presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, has called for the abolition of the electoral college voting in the country’s presidential election.
The Democrat and former secretary of state argued the winner should be determined by the popular vote and not by a group of electors.
In a tweet on her official Twitter handle on Monday, December 14, Clinton, who was one of the New York electors who voted for Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, said voters on the ground should determine their leader.
