Kellyanne Conway, a former counselor to President Trump, said it looks like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will prevail in an interview with The 19th that aired on Friday.
Why it matters: Trump and his inner circle have so far refused to publicly acknowledge President-elect Biden won the election. Instead, they’ve attempted to paint the election process as fraudulent, despite states’ certification of Biden’s win and a lack of evidence supporting their claims.
What shes saying: The president wants to exhaust all of his legal avenues and that is his right, said Conway, who was a fierce Trump defender during her tenure at the White House.
- If you look at the vote totals in the Electoral College tally, it looks like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will prevail. I assume the electors will certify that and it will be official. We, as a nation, will move forward, because we always do, she added.
- Conway pledged to work with future administrations, saying they can count on me.”
- She also emphasized the need for a peaceful transfer of democracy, no matter whose administration goes into whose administration.
- Conway left her post in August to focus on her family, but she continues to advise Trump informally, she told The 19th.
