Will Donald Trump concede the 2020 Presidential election to Joe Biden?
Back to question

Trump claims to have won the election by a far margin and he has gained support of Republicans

Trump has not conceded the election, and claims to have won. Evidence validates this and his supporters agree.


Trump has maintained his winning stance since November 3rd. He has not formally conceded, and insists that he won the election. He is claiming that there was widespread voter fraud and is pursuing various lawsuits in battleground states. Recent surveys suggest that the majority of republicans agree that the election was rigged.

The Argument

President Trump will not concede the election in the coming months, and will continue pursuing the lawsuits in Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. He has been alluding to a non-peaceful transfer of power since before the election. We cannot underestimate him, nor can we underestimate his legal team.

Counter arguments

Majority of the lawsuits have been turned down and there is a consensus that they are based on rubbish.



Consequentialism Framing - Elections have consequences, and Trump is trying to preserve USA integrity. There is evidenced of voter fraud and mismatching, and this has implications on the democracy.


Trump has dictatorial tendencies, and has overlooked constitutional law in the past.

Rejecting the premises

Trump is basing his assertions of data and fraud in concrete evidence-- this isn't dictatorial, but factual.
