Donald Trump says he will leave the White House if Joe Biden is confirmed by electoral college - ABC News

US President Donald Trump says he will leave the White House if, as expected, the electoral college confirms Joe Biden has won the 2020 election.

It is the nearest Mr Trump has come to a concession.

The electoral college is due to meet on December 14 to cast their votes for the president, after voters went to the polls on November 3.

Electors typically reflect the popular vote in their states.

Mr Biden secured enough votes to gain 306 electoral college votes — many more than the 270 required — to Mr Trump's 232.

Mr Biden also leads Mr Trump by more than 6 million in the nationwide popular vote.

The President made his remarks from the White House, after speaking to US troops during the traditional Thanksgiving Day address to US servicemembers.

Mr Trump has so far refused to concede the election and continues to claim without evidence that the election was marred by widespread fraud, and that he and not Mr Biden won it.

Mr Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris are due to be inaugurated on January 20, 2021.

More to come.
