"I'm not leaving," Trump said after losing the election.

“I’m not leaving,” Trump said after losing the election.

Former President of the United States Donald Trump He would have refused to leave the White House after the 2020 election defeat. According to excerpts from the book “The Man of Confidence: The Making of Donald Trump and the Shattering of America,” obtained by CNN International, Trump said he was the winner and, therefore, would stay in place.

According to a book by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, to be released in October, Trump told one of his aides, “I’m not leaving.”

“We will never leave,” the former boss told another official, and even asked, “How can you leave when you win the election?”

In 2020, when he lost re-election Joe BidenTrump refused to accept the result and repeated several times that it was “stolen”. Like the former president, his supporters did not acknowledge Biden’s victory, which led to the Capitol invasion on January 6, 2021, which ended with 5 dead and 140 police officers injured.

As the New York Times reporter wrote in the book, Trump initially seemed to realize he had lost the election. This is because he was going to consult the advisors to find out what went wrong and then said, “We did our best” and “I thought we did.”

The then-president’s mood suddenly changed, when he said he would not leave the White House in January to move Biden on. At the time, witnesses saw him ask GNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, “Why would I leave if they stole it from me?”
