President Donald Trump and the Republican camp might be more than hopeful about the second term of their administration.
Following the U.S elections which took place some days ago and saw Joe Biden emerge as the 46th president of the United States (on paper), President Donald Trump has shown no signs of accepting defeat.
The incumbent President has tweeted severally and has since sought a redress in the court of law to contest the election results, and hopes are high he will retain his presidency.
Also, while appearing with Stuart Varney, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany refused to acknowledge that President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in as US president in January 2021, insisting instead that President Donald Trump will attend “his own inauguration.”
Varney who is usually a staunch Trump supporter subtly suggested it would look bad and like “sour grapes” if he did not attend.
With a smile, McEnany replied “I think the president will attend his own inauguration. He would have to be there in fact.”
McEnany while speaking to Fox Business said that she is confident President Trump’s many legal challenges will eventually turn the election around, adding that the current administration only wants to “lift the hood of the car” on the results.
