Trump 'NOT Backing Down,' Supporters Urged to 'Have Patience' Amid Legal Battles
Campaign manager confirms president is continuing to fight for the election
President Donald Trump is "not backing down" and is busy fighting for the election, his campaign has revealed.
The president's team is urging his staff and supporters to "have patience" amid the ongoing legal battles regarding ballot counts in several states.
The Trump campaign on Monday said President Trump is “not backing down,” as his team mounts legal battles in a number of key battleground states where Democrat nominee Joe Biden led by a razor-thin margin.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien held an all-staff meeting at Trump campaign headquarters Monday morning.
“He still is in this fight,” Stepien said, according to multiple people who were in the room.
“There is a process,” he added.
Stepien said supporters must “have patience” while the situation plays out, according to Fox News.
According to people in the room, Stepien thanked the Trump campaign staff for continuing to do their jobs.
He also gave them an update on legal challenges and recounts in key states.
The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in states like Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.
The Fox News Decision Desk has triggered backlash for calling the race for Biden on Saturday before final counts were completed.
Fox's results in Pennsylvania and Nevada put Biden above the 270 electoral vote threshold necessary to clinch victory in the Electoral College.
The call jumps the gun, however, and doesn't take recounts and legal challenges into account.
Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris have attempted to claim victory in public, with their claims recklessly backed by their allies in the mainstream media.
"It's time for America to unite. And to heal," Biden said in a statement after his "win" was declared by the media.
Despite the ongoing legal battles, sources close to Trump told Fox News he plans to graciously concede and commit to a peaceful transfer of power if the campaign's legal challenges find that Biden legally won the election.
