Trump's two adult sons, meanwhile, have actively rejected the election results and have been trying to drum up support among Republicans.

President Donald Trump is in denial over the overwhelming loss in the 2020 Presidential elections. His refusal to accept the results has led to his son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner and his wife and first lady, Melania, advising him to come to terms with President-elect Joe Biden's victory, as per CNN. This approach is a far cry from Trump's sons, who have asked their allies to keep fighting. According to two different sources, Kushner has approached Trump to concede while the first lady, according to a separate source familiar with the conversations, informed him privately that the time has come for him to accept the loss.

Sources confirm that now Melania Trump has joined Jared Kushner in requesting Donald Trump to concede. Let’s send protective healing energy to Barron- this would not be an easy conversation for a kid to be around. Lot of humbling and emotional things happening.— Rain Dove (@raindovemodel) November 8, 2020
Trump's two adult sons, Donald Jr., and Eric have urged allies to continue pressing on and are pushing Republicans and supporters to publicly reject the results despite major publications projecting Biden's win in the 2020 presidential election. They are not alone in this. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is also said to be encouraging a legal fight as has Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and the President's political advisers Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie. Trump was at his golf course in Sterling, Virginia, on Saturday when the race was called. He had reportedly not denied the outcome of the election privately even as he does so publicly, sources revealed. However, it has been revealed that he's continuing to push his attorneys to pursue legal challenges so that it would delay formal certification of the results.
Melania Trump and Jared Kushner think it's time for Trump to concede the election. They might actually have something up their sleeve for 2024. But his idiot sons are telling him to fight, instead of strategically thinking ahead.— Regular❤️Resister (@RegularResister) November 9, 2020
How stupid can eric and don jr. be???
It’s simply because Trump can’t accept the fact that he has lost. He has to be seen as a winner in some fashion.— Eric Keith Green (@EricKeithGreen) November 9, 2020
Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller, on Sunday morning, denied that Kushner has approached Trump via a Tweet. "This story is not true," said Miller. "Jared has advised @realDonaldTrump to pursue all available legal remedies to ensure accuracy." Also, in a statement from his campaign, Trump asserted that Biden is "rushing to falsely pose as the winner" and that the race is "far from over." Biden's win over Trump was historical, as he secured 273 electoral votes, crossing the required 270-mark, as we reported earlier. Meanwhile, Biden's running mate Kamala Harris makes history as she becomes the first woman and Black person to be Vice President-elect of the United States.

I don’t know who is going to win this election. But I do know who deserves to win. And that’s President Trump.— Danielle D'Souza Gill (@danielledsouzag) November 2, 2020
He works 100x harder than Biden, whether it’s in the WH or on the road for the American people. #Trump2020 pic.twitter.com/H1vlpz7gNk
Upon winning the elections, Biden took to Twitter to celebrate: America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me. Fittingly, Vice President-Elect Harris, when nominated as running mate, had written on Instagram, Joe Biden is a leader who can unify the American people because he's spent his life fighting for the American people. And as president, he will build an America that lives up to our ideals. I'm honored to join him as our party's nominee for Vice President and do everything it takes to make JoeBiden our next Commander-in-Chief.

This election is so crazy. I find it hard to believe that all these people voted for Biden. There has to be a mistake in the computer glitch. Trump deserves to win. He has done so much the past 4 years.— Genie Morris (@jitterbuggenie) November 7, 2020
Its not over yet keep praying
Even when the presidential elections were underway, Joe Biden had broken the record for receiving the most votes ever by a presidential candidate in the history of the United States. The 77-year-old has received 77,20,71,434 votes from people, as of November 5th, thus breaking the record set by former POTUS Barack Obama, who earned the votes of 66,862,039 people in 2008, according to The New York Times. Even President Donald Trump did not get that many votes when he ran for office in 2016 and received 62,985,106 votes per The New York Times. Now that the results are out, maybe America will be great again!
