Former President Donald Trump is not admitting defeat in the 2020 election
During an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Trump was asked how he would win back female, independent voters.
“First of all, I won in 2020 by a lot. OK? Let’s get that straight. I won in 2020” the former president insisted.
Baier tried to interject to correctly point out he did not win.
However, Trump proceeded to list off a series of words and phrases in a response that was not too coherent.
“You take a look at Truth the Vote… Let’s go to recent, FBI Twitter. Let’s go to recent, the 51 agents,” he said.

FBI Twitter, is that like “CSI: NY”?
Baier suggested the former president’s complaints were “all fair things” to talk about, but again stated, “You lost the 2020 election.”
“Uh, Bret… uh, you take a look at all of the stuffed ballots, you take a look at all of the things…” Trump shot back.
Baier noted there have been several recounts that failed to find evidence of widespread fraud, and his campaign’s lawsuits failed even in front of judges he appointed.
However, the former president insisted there needed to be “real recounts,” and that people were not really looking for fraud.
When Baier asked Trump if this was a message he planned to use to win back female voters he said, “We’re off to winning an election, and I think we’re winning very well.”
Trump has some legitimate complaints about Twitter’s crackdown on the story about the Hunter Biden laptop. But a private company preventing information from being shared on its platform is not evidence of widespread fraud in an election, or that the election was somehow unfair.
And speaking in shorthand such as “FBI Twitter” and “51 agents,” is probably not going to mean much to people who have not been obsessively following politics. Instead, it probably comes off as some incoherent rambling of a 77-year-old man who spends too much time on social media.
People who were looking to hear about why they should vote for Trump would likely be left scratching their heads trying to figure out what “FBI Twitter” has to do with their lives.
