CNN reported that some senior White House officials have begun to quietly backtrack on support for President Donald Trump.
The network quoted sources confirming that this step came after the publication of the preliminary results of the vote count in Pennsylvania and Georgia.
And CNN quoted a senior adviser to President Trump as saying about the election race: “It is over,” while another adviser said about Trump: “He is in isolation.”
The sources pointed out that there are still some aides and allies around the president “telling him what he wants to hear.”
The latest developments in vote counting indicate that the White House owner’s chances of winning a second term are slim, with Biden approaching the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the presidency.
