Republicans in the United States Congress have asked President Donald Trump not to concede defeat to Democrat Joe Biden in the US election.
Naija News recalls that Biden became the 46th President of the United States, winning against Trump.
After a good start on Tuesday night, Donald Trump saw the needle tilt more and more in favour of his Democratic opponent, who finally reached the magic number of 270 electoral college votes required to ascend to the presidency of the United States, Saturday morning.
But reacting, Republicans have advised Trump to “fight hard” and not concede, adding that allegations of fraud must be investigated.
The Republicans stated that legal challenges must be allowed to play out before Trump takes the next action.
Speaking on Fox News, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said: “We will work with Biden if he wins, but Trump has not lost.
“Do not concede, Mr President. Fight hard.”
Also speaking Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the House of Representatives, said legal battles must happen and vote counting must continue.
“What we need in the presidential race is to make sure every legal vote is counted, every recount is completed, and every legal challenge should be heard.
“Then and only then that America will decide who won the race,” he said.
