Former Vice President Joe Biden said he's "absolutely convinced" the military will escort Trump out of the White House if he loses and refuses to leave.
That's assuming Trump loses (unlikely) and that Trump is a sore loser (he's not).
Biden made the comments during an interview with Trevor Noah, who is known as a "comedian," but regularly pushes his platform to push far left talking points.
In the same interview, Biden pushed claims that he is concerned that Trump will try to steal the election.
Really… we're going THAT route again?
After 3 years of Russia-Russia-Russia with absolute NO proof of alleged Trump-Russia interference, the Democrats are already coming up with excuses for their loss in November… even as they tout polls showing that Biden is ahead.
More details on Biden's comments below:
Though there is absolutely no evidence that Trump is trying to "steal" the election, it's a talking point that Democrats and Biden are already pushing.
In fact, Trump wants to SECURE our elections by stopping mail-in voting, which can result in voter fraud.
The best way to secure our election is to require in-person voting with VOTER-ID.
The Hill confirms Biden's prediction of the military escorting Trump from the White House:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said late Wednesday that he's "absolutely convinced" the military would escort President Trump from the White House if the presumptive Democratic nominee wins the general election in November.
Biden was asked on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" whether he's thought about the possibility of Trump refusing to leave office.
"Yes, I have," Biden said.
He went on to list a number of former high-ranking military officials who have spoken out about Trump's actions in response to protests that swept the nation following the police killing of George Floyd. Biden cited those remarks as proof that the military would intervene if Trump did not accept the election results.
"I promise, I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch," the former vice president said.
Biden alleged at a separate point in the interview that Trump would attempt to "steal" the election later this year, arguing that the president's opposition to mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic is part of an effort to suppress voting rights.
"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."
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany dismissed Biden's comments on Thursday, calling the idea that the military would have to remove Trump from office a "ridiculous proposition."
"This president is looking forward to November. This president is hard at work for the American people," she said on Fox News. "And leave it to Democrats to grandstand and level these conspiracy theories."
Indeed, this is another conspiracy theory, just like the Russia hoax.

It's important to note that while he claims he can heal the country, Biden was vice president under the first black president for 8 years.
The Black Lives Matter movement started under Obama.
What did Obama and Biden do to unify the country?
Did they pass any reform to minimize police brutality against ALL races?
If they didn't then, why should we believe Biden will do it now?
If and when Trump wins re-election fair and square, Biden's constant wearning of "stealing the election" will give Democrats more amunition to launch endless investigations.
You'd think 3 years of investigation Russia was enough... but apparently the Democrats want more.
CNN has more details on Biden's claims:
"This is a guy who said that all mail-in ballots are fraudulent, voting by mail, while he sits behind the desk in the Oval Office and writes his mail-in ballot to vote in a primary," he said, referring to Trump voting by mail in Florida.
Still, Biden said Wednesday, he believes if Trump has lost the election, military leaders would not allow him to refuse to leave office.
Saying he was "so damn proud" of the military leaders who have recently criticized Trump, Biden continued, "you have so many rank and file military personnel saying, well, we're not a military state, this is not who we are. I promise you, I'm absolutely convinced, they will escort him from the White House in a dispatch."
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany called Biden's remarks a "ridiculous proposition" during an appearance on Fox News Thursday.
Biden and other Democrats have long said they worry about Republican attempts to impose strict voting laws. Those concerns grew when in Wisconsin this spring, the national and state GOP opposed the Democratic governor's bid to mail every voter an absentee ballot and successfully fought in court to hold an in-person spring election in April in the midst of the pandemic. At stake was a state Supreme Court seat that would cast the deciding vote in a case over whether to purge more than 200,000 voters from the state's rolls ahead of Election Day in November. A Democrat won that election.
Two months ago, Biden said he believes Trump will attempt to move the election date because of the coronavirus -- a claim Trump has rejected.
"Mark my words: I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held," Biden said in April.
Sorry, Joe... looks like the election is still in November!
And as Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnamy pointed out, if it's safe to protest in the streets, then it's safe enough to vote in person!
