(CNN) — Facing a disappearing pathway to victory, President Donald Trump offered
little indication on Friday he was prepared to concede defeat, leading those
around him to wonder who might be able to reckon with a leader who has given
virtually no thought to leaving the White House.

Even as vote totals now show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in key
battlegrounds, Trump has not prepared a concession speech and in conversations
with allies in recent days has said he has no intention of conceding the
election, people familiar with the matter said.

So far he has been bolstered in his stance by those closest to him, including
his senior advisers and his adult sons, who have mounted an aggressive effort in
the courts to challenge the results and have pressured other Republicans into
defending him.

Top aides, including his chief of staff Mark Meadows, have not attempted to come
to terms with the President about the reality of what is happening. Instead,
they have fed his baseless claim that the election is being stolen from
underneath him. That has led to some annoyance among staff, who believe Meadows
is feeding the President's baseless claim that the election is illegitimate.

Vice President Mike Pence -- who has not been seen since the early hours of
Wednesday morning -- is doing his part to appease Trump by soliciting funds for
his legal defense fund.

Trump is not scheduled to appear in public on Friday, though an appearance at
some point has not been ruled out. He spent the morning angry and frustrated,
watching television while griping more people weren't defending him on the
airwaves.

In a written statement on Friday afternoon, Trump signaled his intentions to
continue waging legal battle.

"This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our
entire election process," he wrote. "We will pursue this process through every
aspect of the law to guarantee the American people have confidence in our
government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation."

Trump has acknowledged to some allies he recognizes the electoral math will not
work in his favor, according to people familiar with the conversations, but has
maintained that a prolonged court battle and corrosive rhetoric about election
fraud would sow enough doubt to allow him to refuse to accept the results.

Two campaign advisers and one source close to the President said Trump will
exhaust his legal avenues for fighting the results in several key battleground
states before giving any consideration to conceding.

"He's in fighting mode," one source close to the President said. "He thinks it's
in his benefit to fight."

While the reality of Trump's impending loss has set in for many people close to
the campaign, others are advising the President to continue fighting the
outcomes and investigate claims of fraud.

Biden's campaign voiced little concern at the prospect of Trump clinging to
power.

"As we said on July 19, the American people will decide this election. And the
United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of
the White House," campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement.

The Trump campaign released a statement Friday morning making clear it will
refuse to concede the election, calling any projections of Biden as the winner
"false" and the race "far from final."

"This election is not over," Trump campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said in
a statement.

Still, some of the President's allies have grown concerned that someone will
eventually have to reckon with him that his time in office is likely coming to
an end. It is a possibility the President did not consider in a serious way
during the election, despite polls showing him with only a narrow path to
victory, believing that looking past Election Day was bad luck.

The delicate matter of a loss -- and a potential post-presidential life -- was
not discussed widely among his team and was not raised often with the President,
who believed adamantly he would win.

Trump spent much of the campaign claiming Biden was the worst presidential
candidate in history -- and suggesting that losing to him would amount to abject
humiliation.

"Losing is never easy," he said at his campaign headquarters on Election Day.
"Not for me, it's not."

Now, people around Trump are working to identify who might be able to
communicate to him the stark reality. There has been talk of potentially Jared
Kushner or Ivanka Trump, though their willingness to lead a difficult
intervention wasn't clear.

One idea being floated is framing potential conversations with Trump around the
idea of preserving his brand for life after being president -- and explaining
that dragging out an election he clearly lost would ruin his businesses and
forestall whatever political future he's hoping for.

Before the election, Trump raised the prospect of running for President again in
2024 if he were to lose, though only in a joking manner. Even in likely loss,
Trump garnered more votes than he did in 2016 and his future role as a
Republican kingmaker seems secured -- though some fear a drawn out and ugly loss
could damage his standing.

Trump has spent the days since election night ensconced at the White House,
angrily phoning allies and demanding that more people come out to defend him. He
has complained that his legal team is ill-prepared to wage an effective battle
in courts, according to one person who spoke to him.

At the same time, his legal team's efforts have appeared somewhat slipshod. Some
in the campaign questioned the Trump team's decision to dispatch the likes of
Rudy Giuliani and Trump's sons to make unfounded allegations of voter fraud,
arguing they likely diminished the President's claims of wrongdoing.

Trump sounded downtrodden during an evening statement from the White House on
Thursday and departed the room without answering for his false claims about
voter fraud.

In meetings with his team in the Oval Office and the White House residence,
Trump has asked why more Republicans weren't coming out to allege voter
irregularities or make the same claims he was making about votes being counted
after Election Day.

He also pressed them into arranging a public statement, something he'd been
itching to do since Wednesday. Aides had successfully stalled, believing
anything the President said would damage his standing and make matters worse.

But after Biden spoke from near his home in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday
afternoon, Trump insisted a statement be added for him to detail his legal case.

Afterward, several advisers said the performance was precisely what they'd hoped
to avoid.

You mean the smallest inauguration in history? The crowd will be so small, so
small. Perhaps you and Kamela can get it on in the cloakroom. Willie Brown
says she's great on her knees, much like yourself, no doubt.

small. Perhaps you and Kamela can get it on in the cloakroom. Willie Brown
says she's great on her knees, much like yourself, no doubt.
To quote Philly Mayor to Trump,
Democrat run shithole city for 55 years. Yeah, great example.

(CNN) — Facing a disappearing pathway to victory, President Donald Trump offered
little indication on Friday he was prepared to concede defeat, leading those
around him to wonder who might be able to reckon with a leader who has given
virtually no thought to leaving the White House.
Even as vote totals now show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in key
battlegrounds, Trump has not prepared a concession speech and in conversations
with allies in recent days has said he has no intention of conceding the
election, people familiar with the matter said.
So far he has been bolstered in his stance by those closest to him, including
his senior advisers and his adult sons, who have mounted an aggressive effort in
the courts to challenge the results and have pressured other Republicans into
defending him.
Top aides, including his chief of staff Mark Meadows, have not attempted to come
to terms with the President about the reality of what is happening. Instead,
they have fed his baseless claim that the election is being stolen from
underneath him. That has led to some annoyance among staff, who believe Meadows
is feeding the President's baseless claim that the election is illegitimate.
Vice President Mike Pence -- who has not been seen since the early hours of
Wednesday morning -- is doing his part to appease Trump by soliciting funds for
his legal defense fund.
Trump is not scheduled to appear in public on Friday, though an appearance at
some point has not been ruled out. He spent the morning angry and frustrated,
watching television while griping more people weren't defending him on the
airwaves.
In a written statement on Friday afternoon, Trump signaled his intentions to
continue waging legal battle.
"This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our
entire election process," he wrote. "We will pursue this process through every
aspect of the law to guarantee the American people have confidence in our
government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation."
Trump has acknowledged to some allies he recognizes the electoral math will not
work in his favor, according to people familiar with the conversations, but has
maintained that a prolonged court battle and corrosive rhetoric about election
fraud would sow enough doubt to allow him to refuse to accept the results.
Two campaign advisers and one source close to the President said Trump will
exhaust his legal avenues for fighting the results in several key battleground
states before giving any consideration to conceding.
"He's in fighting mode," one source close to the President said. "He thinks it's
in his benefit to fight."
While the reality of Trump's impending loss has set in for many people close to
the campaign, others are advising the President to continue fighting the
outcomes and investigate claims of fraud.
Biden's campaign voiced little concern at the prospect of Trump clinging to
power.
"As we said on July 19, the American people will decide this election. And the
United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of
the White House," campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement.
The Trump campaign released a statement Friday morning making clear it will
refuse to concede the election, calling any projections of Biden as the winner
"false" and the race "far from final."
"This election is not over," Trump campaign general counsel Matt Morgan said in
a statement.
Still, some of the President's allies have grown concerned that someone will
eventually have to reckon with him that his time in office is likely coming to
an end. It is a possibility the President did not consider in a serious way
during the election, despite polls showing him with only a narrow path to
victory, believing that looking past Election Day was bad luck.
The delicate matter of a loss -- and a potential post-presidential life -- was
not discussed widely among his team and was not raised often with the President,
who believed adamantly he would win.
Trump spent much of the campaign claiming Biden was the worst presidential
candidate in history -- and suggesting that losing to him would amount to abject
humiliation.
"Losing is never easy," he said at his campaign headquarters on Election Day.
"Not for me, it's not."
Now, people around Trump are working to identify who might be able to
communicate to him the stark reality. There has been talk of potentially Jared
Kushner or Ivanka Trump, though their willingness to lead a difficult
intervention wasn't clear.
One idea being floated is framing potential conversations with Trump around the
idea of preserving his brand for life after being president -- and explaining
that dragging out an election he clearly lost would ruin his businesses and
forestall whatever political future he's hoping for.
Before the election, Trump raised the prospect of running for President again in
2024 if he were to lose, though only in a joking manner. Even in likely loss,
Trump garnered more votes than he did in 2016 and his future role as a
Republican kingmaker seems secured -- though some fear a drawn out and ugly loss
could damage his standing.
Trump has spent the days since election night ensconced at the White House,
angrily phoning allies and demanding that more people come out to defend him. He
has complained that his legal team is ill-prepared to wage an effective battle
in courts, according to one person who spoke to him.
At the same time, his legal team's efforts have appeared somewhat slipshod. Some
in the campaign questioned the Trump team's decision to dispatch the likes of
Rudy Giuliani and Trump's sons to make unfounded allegations of voter fraud,
arguing they likely diminished the President's claims of wrongdoing.
Trump sounded downtrodden during an evening statement from the White House on
Thursday and departed the room without answering for his false claims about
voter fraud.
In meetings with his team in the Oval Office and the White House residence,
Trump has asked why more Republicans weren't coming out to allege voter
irregularities or make the same claims he was making about votes being counted
after Election Day.
He also pressed them into arranging a public statement, something he'd been
itching to do since Wednesday. Aides had successfully stalled, believing
anything the President said would damage his standing and make matters worse.
But after Biden spoke from near his home in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday
afternoon, Trump insisted a statement be added for him to detail his legal case.
Afterward, several advisers said the performance was precisely what they'd hoped
to avoid.
CNN's Jim Acosta, Jamie Gangel and Jeremy Diamond contributed to this report.

If Biden is inaugurated as expected, iDJT and his junk gets
dragged out to Pennsylvania Avenue. The Secret Service has been
so abused no one of them is going renegade for him.
