At this point in the 2020 presidential election, many Americans are of the belief that the race is over. Less than two weeks remain until the Electoral College convenes to vote for the winner of this race; meanwhile, states are still certifying their results with Biden as the apparent winner.
President Trump’s legal team continues to stand by assertions of voter fraud. They’ve made a litany of claims in the press, noting the series of supportive, sworn affidavits in their possession; however, the true power continues to remain in the courts.
Amid all of this, President Trump confirmed last week that he will not stay in the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden.
Just yesterday, former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale sat down for a Fox News interview where he shared his thoughts on the 2020 election outcome, according to Breitbart News.
Parscale on the 2020 Presidential Race
While speaking with Fox News, Parscale shared the areas in which the president lost votes this election. These areas included roughly 1% to 2% of suburban men and women; ultimately, Parscale chalked this up to COVID-19 and various fears associated with it.
Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale says that the president's COVID-19 response cost him the election:

He then continued, opining that President Trump ought to have conveyed more “public empathy” regarding this virus. Parscale also acknowledged that many Americans remain fearful of coronavirus before stating that had Trump “leaned into” empathy regarding COVID-19, he would have secured a second White House term “by a landslide.”
Ultimately, the former Trump campaign manager cited that the president not being more “publicly empathetic” served as both a policy and tactical error.
The Current State of this Year’s Presidential Election
Parscale managed Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and part of his 2020 campaign as well. His remaks on Fox News arrived last night as the winner of this year’s race remains heavily disputed.

Lawyers working on President Trump’s behalf continue to allege voter fraud; several lawsuits and recounts continue to remain ongoing as well. Meanwhile, legal representatives for the president are still facing calls to present their evidence of voter fraud and secure more wins in the courts.
Thus far, it remains to be seen whether or not the Trump legal team will make this happen.
