It appears as if Donald Trump has finally admitted he didn’t win last year’s election.

The former POTUS has long argued that he won the November election, and alleged there was electoral fraud that made Joe Biden the victor.

Trump’s claims even sparked audits in some states to recount the votes, but, as it stands, no evidence of fraud has been found.

Prior to the audits, all observers echoed this sentiment and insisted Trump’s claims were baseless.

Just hours before Trump left the White House at the beginning of the year, he was still arguing he’d won the election. However, more than six months later, he appears to have finally conceded.

Speaking on Fox News yesterday, June 16, Trump said:

We didn’t win. We were supposed to win easily, 64 million votes. We got 75 million votes, and we didn’t win, but let’s see what happens on that.

Trump may have admitted he didn’t win, but arguably his ‘let’s see what happens’ comment suggests he has a glimmer of hope that the election results might still be overturned.

While speaking to Sean Hannity last night, Trump also discussed the origins of the COVID outbreak, where he said he believes it came from a lab in China.

Trump said, ‘I believe it was a terrible accident, but I believe it came from the lab. I really hope, and I believe, it was incompetence.’

‘I guess some people don’t necessarily agree with that. They think maybe there was purpose to it, which would be absolutely terrible. But we have to find out more about it, why did it happen, how did it happen, how could anybody be so incompetent,’ he added.

The former POTUS also addressed the fact that people branded him xenophobic for banning anyone from China coming into the US at the beginning of the pandemic. Defending his decision, the 74-year-old claimed he saved ‘tens of thousands of lives.’

Throughout the interview, Trump couldn’t be heard referring the to the virus as ‘China flu’ – which is likely to be down the fact he’s currently facing a $22 million lawsuit for using the term throughout his presidency.

Last month, the Chinese American Civil Rights Coalition (CACRC) took action against the former POTUS and alleged that his use of the derogatory term contributed towards the violence Chinese Americans have been facing.
