OREANDA-NEWS. According to Fyodor Lukyanov, Research Director of the Valdai International Discussion Club, the current US President Donald Trump has long understood that he lost the presidential election to Joe Biden, but he does not find the strength to admit it publicly, due to his character and personal features, and unwillingness to lose.

Trump has previously refused to admit defeat again when the Office of General Services in the US federal government de facto declared Democratic candidate Biden the winner of the election and announced its readiness to begin the transfer of power. However, Trump has confirmed that he has given the order to "do what is necessary" to implement the "original protocols" during the transfer of power.

According to the political scientist, Trump realizes that he will definitely fail, and the lawsuits that he continues to file have already turned into a comedy. Therefore, his image suffers, because a person who is unable to admit reality and his defeat does not look very good in the eyes of the public. In the end, it will be as many predicted: that de facto Trump will leave, the transfer of power will take place, while he will not admit defeat, since he will not say these difficult phrases for him.

Despite Trump's reluctance to officially admit defeat, the US Department of Defense previously confirmed that it had received notification of the beginning of the transfer of power to the Biden administration and will implement the corresponding plan at the ministry level.
