Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and one of his most trusted advisers, has reportedly approached Donald Trump to discuss him conceding to President-elect Joe Biden.
The Democrat has been deemed the victor with calls having seen him cross the threshold for an Electoral College vote majority, though Trump intends to pursue legal challenges over the counting of ballots as he persists he has been truly victorious.
Given this, Trump has yet to concede to Biden despite world leaders and even several high-profile Republicans moving to congratulate the Democrat.
While Trump has continued with this combative stance since Election Day, Kushner is said to have since approached him to discuss acknowledging Biden as victor.
CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins told her 722,000 Twitter followers: “Some news — Jared Kushner has approached President Trump about conceding the election, per two sources.”
