Joe Biden suggested the military will intervene should President Trump lose to him in the 2020 election and refuse to leave office.
Biden was asked by Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah whether the thought of Trump refusing to exit the White House had ever entered his mind.
Surprisingly, the former Vice President replied, “Yes, I have.”
He then discussed former military officials who have spoken out against the President’s desire to use the military to help quell riots in Democrat-ravaged cities.
In demonstrating that he has, in fact, been thinking about what to do if Trump refuses to accept the election results, the Democrat nominee somehow linked the two.
“I promise, I am absolutely convinced they [the military] will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” said Biden.
Joe Biden says that his greatest concern that is that President Trump is going to try to “steal this election” and the military will have to escort him from the White House.

Afraid He’ll ‘Steal’ the Election
At another point during the interview, Biden – whose party refused to accept the 2016 election results, tried to remove the President through impeachment, and is currently trying to steal the 2020 election through vote-by-mail – said his biggest worry is that Trump is actually the one who will cheat.
“It’s my greatest concern. My single greatest concern,” Biden said. “This president is going to try to steal this election. This is a guy who said that all mail-in ballots are fraudulent.”
Of course, he never said “all” mail-in voting is fraudulent, only that it is ripe for such activity, which is verifiably true.

Cedric Richmond says he agrees with Joe Biden’s claim that the military will escort President Trump out of the White House if he loses the election and refuses his loss: “I do want to be on the escort committee to make sure that (Trump) leaves the White House” pic.twitter.com/gX0C9wVIlM

McEnany Slaps Biden Back to Reality biden trump military
Four years we’ve spent listening to Democrats refuse to accept the election results. And now we have to sit here and listen to them yet again say they’re worried Trump won’t accept them?
Pot, meet kettle.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed Biden for his off-the-wall comments.
“Leave it to Democrats to go out there and grandstand and level these conspiracy theories,” McEnany told Fox News, adding that it was “a ridiculous proposition.”
Democrats have spent a good portion of Trump’s first term in office pretending Hillary was the truly legitimate President, so peddling in the ‘ridiculous’ is what they do.
