On the Daily Show, Joe Biden told the world what keeps him up at night. Apparently, he’s worried that Trump will try to steal the upcoming presidential election and not acknowledge the result if he loses. But Biden says he’s confident that U.S. soldiers would escort Trump from the White House if he refuses to leave.
“It’s my greatest concern, my single greatest concern: This president is going to try to steal this election.”
Biden didn’t lay out how Trump is supposed to steal an election overseen by local and state officials around the country, but he did allude to the president’s objections to mail-in ballots.
There’s no precedent in U.S. history of a president refusing to leave office or acknowledge losing an election, and there’s no indication that Trump wants to be the first. But it does make good television for Biden to bring up the issue and then knock it down with the military.
