President Trump came very close to admitting his defeat in the US presidential election on Friday while making his first public remarks in a week. 

Speaking from the White House Rose Garden, Trump was discussing the possibility of the Biden administration implementing a national lockdown when he had to catch himself, before accidentally almost admitting defeat.

He continued: “Hopefully the – whatever happens in the future, who knows which administration will be.”

“Whatever happens in the future,” Trump added. “Who knows, which administration it will be — I guess time will tell — but I can tell you this administration will not go to a lockdown.”
