Democrats call for the forcible removal of President Trump from office
President Trump is officially refusing to concede to Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race as a number of battleground states are still being disputed. This has prompted a spokesman for the Biden campaign to threaten to forcibly escort him from the White House. This is only one example of a number of Democrats who are now calling for Trump to be removed from office and/or arrested.
“As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide the election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House,” Biden campaign Director of Rapid Response Andrew Bates stated.
A source identified as a “senior aide” told Fox News that “the president’s counselors have been giving him advice in both directions, with some telling Trump that a concession is the correct thing to do, and others pushing him to continue to fight to ensure the vote was correct and legitimate.”
“The source told Fox News that the president is ‘simply skeptical.’ ‘He warned about this for months,’ the aide said. ‘The media didn’t take it seriously, and now, here we are with the scenario.’ The aide said, though, that the president ‘may ultimately concede.’”
“He’s just not there yet,” the aide told Fox News.
Biden campaign spokesperson responds to reports that Trump does not intend to concede if he loses re-election:

Trump’s 2020 campaign general counsel released a statement:
“The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final. Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail. There were many irregularities in Pennsylvania, including having election officials prevent our volunteer legal observers from having meaningful access to vote counting locations.”
“We prevailed in court on our challenge, but were deprived of valuable time and denied the transparency we are entitled to under state law. In Nevada, there appear to be thousands of individuals who improperly cast mail ballots. Finally, the President is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press. Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected.”
Former ESPN anchor Keith Olbermann is also calling for the arrest and removal of President Trump citing treasonous actions for doing so. He wants it done immediately.
Olbermann expressed his opinion on Thursday’s airing of ‘Olbermann vs Trump’ on YouTube. It was posted shortly after Trump addressed the nation on Thursday evening.
“We think there’s going to be a lot of litigation because we have so much evidence, so much proof, it’s going to end up perhaps at the highest court in the land, you’ll see,” Trump said in his speech from the White House. “We think there’ll be a lot of litigation because we cannot have an election stolen like this.
“We want every legal vote counted, and I want every legal vote counted,” Trump stated. “We want openness and transparency – no secret count rooms, no mystery ballots, no illegal votes being cast after Election Day.”
The statements incensed Olbermann who ranted at length concerning them in his video.
TRUMP MUST BE REMOVED AND ARRESTED, TONIGHT. Gripped by a paranoid delusion, threatening the nation's safety, this can't wait any longer. It won't happen; in fact he'll probably concede and instantly announce he's running in '24.

“TRUMP HAS LOST HIS MIND AND MUST BE REMOVED, TONIGHT,” Olbermann wrote in a caption of the tweet for his video. “The coup attempt, we can survive. A mentally incompetent president, we may not. Instead, he will stay, and when he concedes he will simultaneously begin a campaign for 2024.”
In the video, Olbermann referred to Trump as “President Karen” and called him a “lame-duck president.” He also referenced a report which claimed that Trump had said he would run again in 2024, should he lose the election.
Olbermann is a frequent and ardent critic of President Trump. Last month he said that Trump should be given the “death penalty” for “each count” of the 220,000 Americans who have died from the coronavirus.
