Trump had confrontation with reporters about election results during Thanksgiving Military Teleconference

November 27, 2020


On 11/26/2020, during a Thanksgiving Video Teleconference with Members of the Military, when reporter Jeff Mason pressed Trump on the voter fraud multiple times, Trump said “Don’t talk to me that way. You’re just a lightweight. Don’t talk to me that way. I’m the president of the United States. Don’t ever talk to the president that way.” Mason had asked Trump whether he would concede when the Electoral College votes for Biden.

The exchange began when Mason asked the president if he would concede if the Electoral College votes in favor of Biden. “Well, if they do, they made a mistake, because this election was a fraud,” the president responded. The president said that it would be a “very hard thing to concede” to Biden, but that he would leave the White House in January if electors voted for Biden, “Certainly I will. Certainly I will. And you know that,” he said.

Trump had been claiming that election results showed Democrat Joe Biden “losing to Obama all over the place” in noncompetitive states, meaning the former vice president had failed to match the election performance of his boss. And yet, Trump claimed, Biden’s vote totals surpassed those of Obama “in areas that mattered in terms of the election – in swing states.” The president’s insinuation was that Biden’s vote totals in battleground states may have been manipulated. “This election was a fraud,” the president concluded at one point.
