The mayor of Philadelphia had some choice words for President Donald Trump on Friday, calling for the president to concede the election to former Vice President Joe Biden.

The race in Pennsylvania, a state Trump must win in order to gain a second term, is still too close to call with about 124,000 more ballots left to count as of Friday morning. As of 2:45 pm with 98% of estimated votes in, NPR reports that Biden currently holds a small but growing 13,662-vote lead over Trump in the Keystone State.

“You know, I think that the president needs to do is, frankly, put his big boy pants on and he needs to acknowledge the fact that he lost and he needs to congratulate the winner,” Mayor Jim Kenny told reporters at a midday press conference.

He then added that Trump should concede “just as Jimmy Carter did, just as George H.W. Bush did, and, frankly, just as Al Gore did—and stop this and let us move forward as a country.”

While the Trump campaign had prematurely declared victory in Pennsylvania, Biden is not officially declaring victory either but has said he is confident that he will ultimately win the election based on current trends in ballot counting.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
