President Donald Trump almost went there and admitted that contrary to the constant stream of falsehoods he has sputtered for the last 10 days he actually lost the Nov. 3 election to Joe Biden.
The key word, of couse, is almost. Because  like Happy Days character Arthur Fonzie Fonzarelli Trump cant ever admit being wrong about anything.
It happened Friday in a news conference in which Trump discussed how the White House planned to handle the COVID-19 pandemic in the coming months.
Ideally, we wont go to a lockdown I will not go, this administration will not be going to a lockdown. Hopefully, the, uh, whatever happens in the future, who knows which administration it will be, Trump said. I guess time will tell.

Considering that Biden reportedly won 306 electoral college votes, youd think its a done deal.
But not as far as the president is concerned. He has made all sorts of bizarre claims that he really won the race.
For instance, Trump on Friday took credit for what the Department of Homeland Security called the most secure election in U.S. history and then he argued it was rigged.
The presidents comments attracted a lot of snarky political analysis from Twitter users.
He 100% knows he lost. https://t.co/9TCkfmNxQ8

But one person suggested that Trumps comment was probably as good as its going to get.
Thats the closest were getting to a concession speech.
