MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell highlighted an important development that came out of a recent interview between former President Donald Trump and Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity: he finally conceded the 2020 election to President Joe Biden.
“And this is big,” O’Donnell prefaced. “Donald Trump finally conceded tonight, he delivered the concession speech. He did. Yes. Not making this up. To Sean Hannity on that hour. Here’s how it went. It’s not the traditional form. First of all,”
“Sean Hannity said to him, more than once, began questions with, ‘if you were still president.’ And Donald Trump did not correct him. Donald Trump went on and said words. I’m not going to say he answered the question, but he said words after the question mark,” he added.
“More than once: ‘If you were still president.’ And then towards the end of the discussion, Donald Trump actually said this about Joe Biden. ‘I want him to do well.’ Now that is — that’s in every concession speech. ‘I want him to do well.’ I mean, that’s it. That — there it is. The concession speech.”
During that same interview, Trump admits, “we didn’t win but let’s see what happens on that.”
