U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that if the Electoral College confirms that Joe Biden won the November 3 election, he will leave the White House.
Trump has not conceded and maintains that the Democrat is not the elected president.
The latest comment is the closest to his acknowledgment of Biden’s victory and may be a sign of retreat.
Trump spoke at the White House after speaking to U.S. troops during the traditional Thanksgiving Day address, Reuters reports.
The American leader assured that if Biden is certified the election winner by the Electoral College, he will leave.
On Tuesday, Trump endorsed a poll which says 79 percent of his voters “believe election was stolen”.
He tweeted that evidence of “ballot fraud and more” are contained in his team’s lawsuit.
The former Vice President has won more than 80 million popular votes and 306 electoral votes; the President has nearly 74 million and 232 electoral votes.
Biden, a former Senator, made history with the election win.
