he Biden campaign has plunged to a new low: threatening to remove President Trump from the White House.
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates threatened to have President Trump escorted from the White House if he refuses to concede in the 2020 presidential election.
“As we said on July 19th, the American people will decide this election,” Bates said, according to Bloomberg reporter Jennfier Epstein. “And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”

Bates echoed his belief that the former vice president will be officially declared the winner, despite several key battleground states still counting votes.
Last summer, the media pressed President Trump on whether he would leave the Whie House without controversy if defeated by Joe Biden.
There was something strange about the frequency and fixation of the question then, and it’s still awfully suspicious now.
With the results still in limbo, the Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Pennsylvania, alleging voter fraud. The Georgia and Michigan suits were dismissed, but Pennsylvania granted Trump a win, allowing campaign officials to observe ballot counters, according to the Daily Caller.
Biden, on the other hand, assured his supporters that he and his veep nominee Kamala Harris “will be declared winners” in a speech Thursday.
“Democracy is sometimes messy,” he said. “It sometimes requires a little patience as well, but that patience has been rewarded now for more than 240 years with a system of governance that’s been the envy of the world. I ask everyone to stay calm – all people to stay calm. The process is working. The count is being completed, and we’ll know very soon.”
Well, Joe. If the roles were reversed, would you be able to say the same? Not likely.
