What happens if Donald Trump refuses to leave the White House?

American people have spoken. Joe Biden will be their 46th president with Kamala Harris will serve as his deputy.

However, President Trump is still insisting the race was not over. Mr Trump threw out baseless allegations of voter fraud, promised a flurry of legal action and fired off all-caps tweets falsely insisting he’d “WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT.”

With President Donald Trump’s denial of the poll results, the question is, what happens if Trump refuses to leave the White House the way he refuses to accept the results?

Donald Trump would be evicted anyway.

Trump is not expected to ever formally concede, according to people close to him, but is likely to grudgingly vacate the White House at the end of his term.

His ongoing efforts to paint the election as unfair are seen both as an effort to soothe a bruised ego and to show his loyal base of supporters that he is still fighting. That could be key to keeping them energized for what comes next.
