Having seemed to finally admit the reality of his loss in the election held on November 3, US President Donald Trump promptly went back on it on Twitter Sunday morning (US time), repeating his claims that the election was rigged against him and doubling down on not conceding.
In amongst a flurry of tweets posted on Sunday morning (US time), was one in which he wrote:
"He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!"
This was the first time he publicly conceded that Biden won, fairly or not.
It came as a number of lawsuits brought by his campaign in various states mostly failed to make any headway in court, more-or-less wiping out the possibility that the result could be overturned.
However, Trump has now followed that up with two more tweets in which he claimed:
“He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA. I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION!"
