WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he will leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.
In the nearest he has come to a concession, Republican Trump said if Biden is certified the election winner by the Electoral College he will depart the White House.
The Electoral College is due to meet on Dec. 14.
Trump made the comments at the White House after speaking to U.S. troops during the traditional Thanksgiving Day address to U.S. servicemembers.
Biden won the Nov. 3 presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 required - to Trump’s 232.
Biden also leads Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote tally. »
