Outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump has finally broken his silence, admitting indirectly that he has lost the election to Joe Biden.
He spoke on Friday at the White House, his first speech since Biden was declared the winner last Saturday.
Trump came out to speak on the raging coronavirus in the country, where over one million infections were recorded in the first 10 days of November.
He last spoke on 4 November, though he has been tweeting and retweeting allegations of voting fraud.
He vowed not to impose a nationwide coronavirus lockdown, after one of Biden’s new advisers said earlier this week it may be the only option to tackle Covid.
But he then conceded that the decision may be out of his hands in the near future.
Trump said: ‘This administration will not go to a lock down…who knows which administration it will be, time will tell.’
Biden is on course to take over from Trump in January, although Trump has not formally conceded defeat.
