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.
“Ideally, we won’t go to a lockdown. I will not go – this administration will not be going to a lockdown,” the president told reporters, according to the Washington Post.
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.”
