Trump aide Jared Kushner makes overtures on concedingWorld | 8 Nov 2020 7:04 pm
Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, has approached the president about conceding the election, two sources tell CNN.
The move comes following Trump's assertion in a statement from his campaign – moments after CNN projected that President-elect Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States - - that Biden is “rushing to falsely pose as the winner” and that the race is “far from over."
"I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands," Trump said in the statement, which states that the campaign’s legal battle will begin Monday.
Biden-Harris deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said Saturday night, as CNN has reported, that there has been no communication between Biden and Trump, or between any representatives from either campaign, since the race was called earlier in the day.
