What will happen if Trump loses election and refuses to leave - Joe Biden

Joe Biden, US presidential candidate and former Vice-president has revealed what will happen if Donald Trump loses the 2020 presidential election and refuses to vacate the White House.

This is coming days after senior military figures spoke publicly against the president since peaceful protesters were forcefully removed from the Lafayette Square area near the White House to clear a path so Trump and his entourage could safely walk to St. John’s Episcopal Church.

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis, retired four-star Marine Corps Gen. John Allen and former Secretary of State Collin Powell have joined the president’s military critics.

Recall that President Donald once joked that he won’t leave office because he is doing well.

“Maybe if we really like it a lot — and if things keep going like they’re going — we’ll go and we’ll do what we have to do,” Trump cracked during a rally in Pennsylvania in May 2019. “We’ll do a three and a four and a five.”
