Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who lost the electoral college vote to President Trump, has some serious advice for presidential nominee Joe Biden: Do not concede under any circumstances. In an interview with HBO’s The Circus, Clinton said that even if Trump wins the electoral college vote on November 3rd, Biden should wait until all the mail-in ballots come in before he officially concedes from the race.
Clinton, who won 3 million more votes that Trump but failed to receive the electoral votes, is still licking her wounds. As the Democrats try to portray Trump as unable to accept the election results, her advice paints a different narrative. Clinton, however, did admit that President Trump holds a “narrow advantage” in the electoral college and on the day itself. But that isn’t good enough for the Democrats, who are pushing for a nation wide mail-in ballot election, totally unprecedented to what has always been done in America.
Clinton said, ‘Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually I do believe he will win if we don’t give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is.”
The irony of this statement is that for months, Democrat lawmakers and pundits have been overly worried that President Trump will not accept the election results and will not leave the Oval Office. Trump, who has been openly opposed to mail-in voting for this very reason, is trying to avoid this scenario.
Clinton continued, ‘We’ve got to have a massive legal operation. I know the Biden campaign is working on that. We have to have our own teams of people to counter the force of intimidation that Republicans and Trump are going to put outside polling places.”
And just to really bring her bitter feelings home, Clinton said, And don’t forget Joe and Kamala [Harris] can win by 3 million votes and still lose – take it from me. So we need numbers overwhelming, so Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory,” Clinton said.
