David Axelrod, a former Obama senior advisor, does not agree with the statements made from Biden’s campaign this Friday about his threat to remove current Republican Donald Trump from the White House.
Andrew Bates, Biden’s Campaign Director, told Fox News, “As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide the election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.” This was in response to President Donald Trump’s refusal to leave the White House without a fight.

To summarize Axelrod’s position. He thinks it’s a bit too early to be aggressive and doesn’t recommend going that far that soon due to the uneasiness and heightened tensions of the US election currently in the news cycle.
If the Biden campaign will win this election, it is already a given that Donald Trump will still have no choice despite his willingness or unwillingness to leave the White House.
Currently, there is still no clear winner as of this Friday night. The states President Trump had a lead in have gone up in smoke, slimming his chances for winning for reelection.
The 5 states that Trump had but are now gone are:
- North Carolina
They have not yet been called, but Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads in the Electoral College vote 264-214.
Trump is clearly not in favor of this, and with such a close election, he feels as if this election is being “stolen” from him.
Republican President Donald Trump currently has no plans to give up the 2020 election without a fight. He continues to push despite Joe Biden taking 2 important states. Joe Biden is currently six electoral votes from winning the White House.
The Trump campaign is currently split as the president’s counselors also disagree internally within his team. Even senior aides say that a confession is a right thing to do while others encourage him not to give up and fight till the end. They want the fight until they feel fraud is happening and wish for the votes to be correct and legitimate.
A source identified as a “senior aide” told Fox News that Trump is “simply skeptical” as he has been verbally warning about what would happen in this election for months. It hasn’t been up until now that the media has taken this scenario seriously, and with the 2020 election up for grabs, the current scenario puts President Donald Trump in a position he may have to concede.
Despite odds against him currently, the senior aide has mentioned, “He’s just not there yet,” in a Fox news report.
The false claims that Joe Biden has won the 2020 election are based on 4 states counting votes. Georgia is likely to do a recount, and there are much suspicion and speculation that there will be ballots improperly harvested, leading to Trump’s victory.
Much continues to go on as there are so many irregularities happening, such as that in Pennsylvania, where election officials prevented volunteer legal observers get access to counting locations.
