President Trump says ‘I concede nothing’ as he admits Joe Biden won – because ‘the election was rigged’

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Has President Trump acknowledged for the first time that Joe Biden won the Presidential election?

Well, sort of.

In a tweet this morning, Mr Trump declared Biden ” won because the election was rigged”, before continuing to make more unfounded allegations of voting fraud.

But it was no admission of defeat –  a short while later he proclaimed “I concede nothing”.
