In response to news that election results have been certified in Arizona and Wisconsin, two White House advisers say President Trump sees the scoreboard and understands he has no chance of hanging on to the presidency despite what he has been tweeting and saying publicly.
“Yes he does,” a close adviser who has been in contact with Trump about his legal strategy said of the President’s awareness that he’s been defeated.
One adviser said Trump will continue to pursue his legal challenges until they are exhausted. But the adviser pointed to the certification in Wisconsin and said “the writing is on the wall.”
Without the ability to override the results in a combination of states, not to mention even one state, the adviser said Trump’s election challenges are obviously doomed.
Trump is still sounding as if he could still win because he wants to believe it, the adviser said. But the adviser added Trump is fully aware that he has lost, despite his ranting and raving on Twitter and on conservative media.
