Pelosi: Biden 'Will Win,’ Trump ‘Should Stand Up Like a Man and Accept' Results
House speaker predicts win for Biden in November
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi predicted that former Vice President Joe Biden would win the election in November, suggesting it would be in President Donald Trump's best interest to "stand up like a man and accept" the results.
The House speaker made the comments during an interview with MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin.
Mohyeldin asked Pelosi, "what Democrats can do if Trump prematurely declares victory on Election Night."
"On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden will be inaugurated president of the United States," Pelosi declared.
"The states will count the votes that they have in a timely fashion, and if the president wins in that format, then, so be it, then he's president."
"We don't anticipate that that will be the case, and neither does he, and that's why he's trying to, as they say, 'stir the pot' so that people will think that he really won when he didn't," Pelosi added.
"Of all the things the president has done, and they have been horrible — undermining the Constitution, degrading our environment, denigrating who we are as a people, undervaluing who we are in terms of our priorities as a country, taking children out of the arms of their parents, dimming the bright light that we are of hope to the world. ... the list goes on and on."

"The easiest thing for [Trump] to do is to stand up like a man and accept the results of an election of the American people," she concluded.
"For him to make these kinds of statements shows his lack of patriotism, his undermining of our elections while he allows foreign countries like his friend [Russian President Vladimir] Putin to undermine the integrity of our election, he himself is doing it as well."
Pelosi later tweeting out the video of her remarks.
Trump has warned of possible mail-in voting fraud, which has since been expanded across the U.S. amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The sheer amount of mail-in ballots has caused concerns that voters may not know the results until after Nov. 3 due to extra time need to tally the votes.
Other Democrats like Hillary Clinton warned the United States needs to 'be ready' if Trump loses the election in November and refuses to leave the White House.
"Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he's going to go quietly or not," she said.
"And we have to be ready for that."
In June, Joe Biden suggested the military will remove Trump if he refuses to leave the White House.
Earlier this year, Pelosi declared Trump would be leaving the White House in November, even if "if he has to be fumigated."
Pelosi asserted Trump would be leaving the White House, “whether he knows it yet or not,” even if he “has to be fumigated.”
