In a new interview with Stephen Adler of Reuters, former Vice President Al Gore suggests it does not matter if President Trump concedes the election or not because if he loses, the military will follow Biden’s command to force him out if Trump were to refuse to leave.
Adler asks “Do you think if President Trump loses in November, he will concede essentially in the same spirit you conceded?”
Gore responds ” I don’t know, but it’s important to say that it’s really not up to him. I hear people saying, “Well, would he accept that decision?” Well, it doesn’t matter because it’s not up to him. Because at noon on January 20th, if a new president is elected — I hope Joe Biden is elected — and if that is the case, the police force, the Secret Service, the military, all of the executive branch officers, will respond to the command and the direction of the new president.”
He continues “It will not matter if Donald Trump accepts it, personally or not.”
“I’m hoping that it will be a decisive victory, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself, because like a lot of people in my political party, I felt kind of optimistic four years ago, and we all saw what happened.” he added.
