The Joe Biden campaign has reacted to claims that Donald Trump is unwilling to concede defeat even if he loses the US presidential election.
The campaign in a statement on Friday, November 6, warned that Donald Trump could be escorted from the White House by the US government if he tries to undermine the democratic process, Independent UK reported.
Andrew Bates, the spokesperson for the Biden campaign stated the American people will decide the presidential election.
He also said that the government can escort trespassers out of the White House, in an apparent reference to the Republican president.
The statement read:
“As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide this election."
"And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House."
The statement was released amid reports that the Trump campaign team is planning to launch lawsuits over his claims of voter fraud among other allegations.
