Donald Trump ‘will not concede defeat’, says his lawyer
The lawyer to President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani has said that he will not concede defeat in the US election.
Democrat Joe Biden defeated President Trump to become the 46th president of the United States on Saturday.
CBS News reported that the president’s attorney disclosed at a press conference Donald Trump won’t concede defeat.

“He’s not going to concede when at least 600,000 ballots are in question,” Giuliani said in Philadelphia on Saturday.
Without evidence he claimed that ballots were tampered with in Pennsylvania, the state that gave Biden the crucial Electoral College votes necessary to win the White House.
Giuliani said the Trump campaign plans to file several federal lawsuits alleging the “uniform deprivation of the right to inspect” ballots.
He also accused the “Democratic machine in Philadelphia” of tampering with counting, and “(keeping) the votes of dead people secret,” among other baseless accusations.
“Seems to me somebody from the Democratic National Committee sent out a note that said don’t let the Republicans look at those mail-in ballots,” Giuliani claimed, again without offering any evidence.
Trump is the first incumbent president to lose reelection since Republican George H.W. Bush in 1992.
