Trump Publicly Admitted For The First Time That Biden Won The Election—But It Didn't Last Long

President Donald Trump's aversion to "losers" is well-documented, so it hasn't come as much of a surprise that Trump is refusing to accept the reality that he lost to President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

It's been over a week since Biden won the key state of Pennsylvania, bringing his electoral vote count above the 270 required to take the White House. The final electoral map shows Biden with 306 electoral votes to Trump's 232—the same margin by which Trump beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016, a victory he called a landslide.

Instead of acknowledging the results of the 2020 election, Trump's team has filed numerous lawsuits across multiple states alleging massive voter irregularities. They've seen defeats in 23 of those court battles.

Meanwhile, the President's Twitter feed has devolved into a swamp of increasingly outrageous lies about widespread voter fraud, prompting Twitter to flag more than a dozen of these tweets as false or misleading.

But on Sunday, the President—however accidentally—appeared to acknowledge Biden's victory.

People took that as Trump's version of a concession, and #TrumpConceded began trending on Twitter.



It didn't take long for Trump to backtrack, insisting that he hadn't conceded.

The lie was met with even more mockery.






Concession or not, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on January 20th, ending Trump's first—and likely only—term in office.
