- Donald Trump's media allies appear to be accepting that there might be a possibility that he will lose this election
- They are focusing on what his legacy will be and how he acts now will go a long way in determining how history will perceive his presidency
- Media outlets such as Fox News are urging the president to act with "grace and composure"
Rupert Murdoch is a staunch supporter of US President Donald Trump but it appears that the winds of change are blowing and his massive media empire is turning against Trump.
The tone of messages coming out of Murdoch-owned media outlets is not supporting Trump's allegations of voter fraud and have focused on Trump's legacy. Essentially, how he chooses to leave office will affect how his presidency is perceived in future.
YEN.com.gh learned that it sounds as if the media are accepting the very real possibility that Trump will not get a second term and will lose this election to Joe Biden.
The Guardian has reported that many of the Murdoch-owned media stations, such as Fox News. Laura Ingraham, a Fox News host who has been a strong Trump supporter revealed that she believes that Trump must act with some "grace and composure".
“If and when it’s time to accept an unfavourable outcome in this election, and we hope it never comes, but if and when that does happen, president Trump needs to do it with the same grace and composure he demonstrated at that town hall with Savannah Guthrie. So many people remarked about his tone and presence. Exactly what he needs."
“Now losing, especially when you believe the process wasn’t fair, it’s a gut punch. And I’m not conceding anything tonight, by the way. But losing, if that’s what happens – it’s awful. But president Trump’s legacy will only become more significant if he focuses on moving the country forward.”
The Wall Street Journal has published a piece with a similar message to Laura's which acknowledges Trump's right to fight in court but his legacy will suffer if her refusal to accept a legitimate defeat at the polls.
“Mr Trump’s legacy will be diminished greatly if his final act is a bitter refusal to accept a legitimate defeat,” the piece warns.
Right now the fate of the election will be decided by a few states and if there is a recount and Biden's lead does not change, it would result in a win for the Democrats and Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the United States of America.
In other news, US President Donald Trump insists he will not back down or concede the election, regardless of Joe Biden reaching 270 electoral votes. According to reports by CNN Trump maintains that he is going to fight and he believes that there has been voter fraud when coming to the counting of the ballots.
A statement released by Trump's team said: "This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process."
Trump has said that he will do whatever it takes to remain in charge at the White House.
