President Donald Trump has paused post-election public appearances for now, but Americans will hear from him “at the right moment,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, speaking in her role as an adviser to his reelection campaign, said Thursday.
“[He is] letting this litigation play out, letting his lawyers take the lead on this, while he stays hard at work for the American people on COVID and other matters,” McEnany said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “But you will be hearing from the president. You hear from him on Twitter. You’ll be hearing from him at the right moment.”
Trump has not appeared or spoken in public — except for his Veterans Day visit to Arlington National Cemetery on Wednesday — since last Thursday, when he attacked the nation’s electoral system and made claims of widespread voter fraud. Two days later, most in the national media projected Joe Biden as the president-elect, with the president’s campaign reacting through a series of lawsuits in several states.
He has kept up his social media presence, though, tweeting continued accusations about fraud and posting updates on his campaign’s efforts.
McEnany told Fox News that there will be a number of affidavits filed Thursday from people alleging illegal actions, including from one woman who was told she’d already voted by mail after she received a ballot but didn’t cast it.
“We just want answers, and the American people deserve to be able to ask questions,” she said.
Meanwhile, McEnany refused to answer a question about Biden being refused access to the President’s Daily Brief, calling it a “question more for the White House.”
“I will say that all laws are being followed with regard to the expected transition, though we expect to continue on as the Trump administration, and we will see how our litigation goes,” said McEnany.
