The ex-president also said that Iran, China and South Korea were happy Biden won, adding that ‘the election was rigged and lost’
Donald Trump has admitted he did not win the 2020 election.“I didn’t win the election,” he said, according to The Guardian.
The admission came in a video interview with a panel of historians convened by Julian Zelizer, a Princeton professor and editor of The Presidency of Donald Trump: A First Historical Assessment. The interview was published on Monday by the Atlantic.
Describing his attempts to make South Korea pay more for US military assistance, Trump said Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, was among the “happiest” world leaders after the 2020 US election put Joe Biden in the White House.
“By not winning the election,” Trump said, “he was the happiest man – I would say, in order, China was – no, Iran was the happiest.
“[Moon] was going to pay $5bn, $5bn a year. But when I didn’t win the election, he had to be the happiest – I would rate, probably, South Korea third- or fourth-happiest.”
