President Donald Trump released a statement Friday as the country awaits the results of the 2020 November presidential election, vowing to “never give up fighting for you and our nation”.
During a White House briefing Thursday, the president pledged that he and his campaign would “not allow corruption to steal” the election, while maintaining that he will win the 2020 presidential race, and that his “goal is to defend the integrity of the election.”
