Some of the advisers to US President Donald Trump are feeling defeatist and trying to distance themselves from him. This became known to CNN from sources.
According to the interlocutor of the publication, the reason for this was the preliminary results in Pennsylvania and Georgia, according to which Trump will not be re-elected for a second term. “It’s all over,” the source quotes one of the key advisers to the presidential administration. The official also did not give a forecast for further actions by Trump, but noted that several officials were left at a loss by some of his statements made on November 5.
Another adviser expressed the view that Trump’s claims of “illegal ballots” were generally unconvincing. “On this issue, he is mostly alone,” he added. That being said, there are still aides and allies next to Trump who tell him what he wants to hear, the source adds.
Earlier, Donald Trump promised the Americans to continue fighting for the country and never give up on this path. He added that he intends to use all legal means to ensure that “illegal ballots” are not taken into account when counting votes.
In the United States, the counting of votes for candidates for the presidency of the country continues. The current president, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, who served as vice president under Barack Obama, are fighting for him. In many states, the difference between applicants is a fraction of a percent.
