Conservative publication The Washington Examiner is calling on President Trump “to concede and move on” in a new editorial.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has recently indicated President Trump does not plan to concede until legal challenges have been concluded.
The editorial argues while fraud might exist at some level, there is “not remotely enough to change the result. The vast spread of American democracy, which makes error and malfeasance inevitable, also makes it plain that neither of these regrettable concomitants of mass voting robbed Trump of victory. No fraud or error produced tens of thousands of additional votes for Biden in battleground states.”
The piece says “In addition to Georgia, Biden’s lead stands at about 10,000 votes in Arizona, 20,000 votes in Wisconsin, 80,000 votes in Pennsylvania, and more than 150,000 votes in Michigan.”
The Washington Examiner warns “At this point, Trump’s efforts are more likely to damage the Republican Party, and more specifically, undermine its chances of winning the Jan. 5 runoff elections in Georgia for the two Senate seats that remain undecided.”
They also argue “The president’s efforts to reverse the election result and stay in office for a second term are not going to succeed” and claim “beyond these political concerns, an extended refusal to concede will do damage to the country.”
