(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.

Longtime ally Chris Christie calls on Trump to provide evidence of election fraud
'We cannot permit inflammation without information,' Christie said

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and longtime ally to President Trump pushed back on the president on Thursday, urging Trump to provide evidence of claims that Democrats are attempting to “steal” the 2020 election.

Trump on Thursday said during a White House press conference he and his campaign will “not allow corruption to steal” the election, while maintaining that he will win the 2020 presidential race despite a dwindling path toward reelection as votes continue to come in.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the ballot a number of times myself. I’ve won, I’ve lost. And so, as a candidate, you’re even more invested in the integrity of the system,” Christie said on ABC News following Trump’s comment.

“If this stuff is going on that the president is talking about … it would undercut everything that we believe in in our system. But as a prosecutor, that’s like asking me to indict someone without showing me any evidence,” Christie continued. “If you’re gonna say those things from behind the podium at the White House, it’s his right to do it, it’s his right to pursue legal action, but show us the evidence.”

Pence Welcomes Futile Bid by G.O.P. Lawmakers to Overturn Election

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/02/us/politics/gop-senators-josh-hawley-election.html

WASHINGTON — Vice President Mike Pence signaled support on Saturday for a futile Republican bid to overturn the election in Congress next week, after 11 Republican senators and senators-elect said that they would vote to reject President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory when the House and Senate meet to formally certify it.

The announcement by the senators — and Mr. Pence’s move to endorse it — reflected a groundswell among Republicans to defy the unambiguous results of the election and indulge President Trump’s attempts to remain in power with false claims of voting fraud.
