Stacey Abrams: Trump 'Can Continue to Fight, But He’s Going to Lose'
'He’s entitled to be unhappy about the outcome'
Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams stated that President Donald Trump should acknowledge “the legal sufficiency" of the system.
During MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show" broadcast on Wednesday, Abrams said:
“Look, we have the right as Americans to litigate, to challenge, and to call into question, but we do not have the right to our own facts, and we do not have the right to manufacture evidence."
"Donald Trump is entitled to his opinion," Abrams continued.
"He’s entitled to be unhappy about the outcome."
"But, as I did in 2018, I acknowledged the legal sufficiency of the election."
"I just simply challenged the system that allowed voters to be disenfranchised," she added.
"It is time now for Donald Trump to acknowledge that the legal sufficiency of the system says that he is no longer the president, and unlike what happened to me, where we had enough evidence to go to federal court and to see changes made, he has to admit that there is no evidence of widespread fraud."
"He can continue to fight, but he’s going to lose.”

Abrams's remarks come just days after President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani revealed he had uncovered bombshell evidence that would ensure the election results is "overturned."
Former New York City Mayor Giuliani says his investigators have found "evidence of illegal ballots."
On Wednesday, an audit in Georgia uncovered large uncounted batches in two more counties as the hand-tallying process continues.
Over 3,000 uncounted ballots turned up in the state on Wednesday as officials conduct a full audit of the 2020 presidential election.
The president's lawyer Sidney Powell revealed earlier this week that her team has a sworn affidavit from a "first-hand witness" who was present when the Smartmatic and Dominion software systems were programmed to allow results to be changed at will.
