Donald Trump has no intention of offering Joe Biden his concession, his senior campaign adviser revealed. Biden beat Trump by more than 4.3 million votes nationwide, making the Republican candidate the first president in 28 years to lose his bid for re-election.

By tradition, the losing candidate congratulates the winning candidate before delivering a concession speech. However, Trump continues to insist that he is the rightful winner and promised that his camp would fight in the courts to the very end. Shortly after his defeat, he launched several lawsuits pressing claims of electoral fraud and corruption despite state officials saying there was no report of significant irregularities during the elections.

Jason Miller, Trump’s campaign adviser, revealed on Monday that Trump does not have any intention of admitting defeat in the U.S. presidential elections. “That word is not even in our vocabulary right now,” he said.

Miller also said they would pursue all legal means and all recount methods to prove the electoral fraud, particularly in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. “We’re going to continue exposing and investigating all these instances of fraud or abuse, and make sure the American public can have full confidence in these elections,” he said.

In a separate interview, Tim Murtaugh of the Donald Trump campaign also said a recount could pave the way for Trump’s re-election. “We have high confidence that as the president pursues his lines of legal recourse—including the recounts in Georgia and Wisconsin, at least—we do feel like there is a runway for the president to win this and win re-election,” he said.

Murtaugh added that while he is against holding campaign-style rallies to push for recounts, he would push for grassroots events such as boat parades to protest the victory of Joe Biden. “People are upset,” he claimed.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s refusal to concede is reportedly splitting both the people of the White House and the Republican party. While Melania Trump, Jared Kushner, and his advisers keep pushing hard for recounts, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and presidential aide David Bossie reportedly want Trump to throw in the towel and concede.

Trump "The ban on H-1B visas, which are often used to fill very niche positions that are not easily found in the American workforce, will ultimately prove to be counterproductive and is an example of using a nuclear bomb to address a bar fight," said Leon Fresco, a former deputy assistant attorney general in the Obama administration who now represents H-1B workers.
