Washington [US]: US President Donald Trump on Thursday said that he would leave the White House if the Electoral College declares President-elect Joe Biden the winner of the election.

"Certainly I will (leave the White House) and you know that. But I think that there will be a lot of things happening now till January 20. Massive fraud has been found. We are like the third-world country -- we are using computer equipment that could be hacked," Trump told a reporter when asked if he would leave the White House if the Electoral College certifies Biden as President.

The outgoing US President, who took questions from the media for the first time since losing to his Democratic counterpart Biden in the recently concluded US Elections, said that it would be a mistake if the electoral college elected Biden as the President.

"If they do they made a mistake," Trump said and added that it's going to be a "very hard thing" to concede. Trump again went on to call the recently concluded presidential election a fraud adding that he was loosing to Obama all over the place.

"This election was a fraud -- at the highest level, it was a rigged election... They had Biden beating Obama and Obama's votes in areas that mattered in key areas that mattered in terms of the election -- swing states and yet he is loosing to Obama all over the place. But he is beating Obama in states that mattered," he said.

When asked about whether he would attend Biden's inauguration on January 20, next year, he knew the answer, but refused to answer the question. "I know the answer but I do not want to answer that right now," Trump said.

Trump further lashed out at the US media and big-tech companies for not having "been fair" to him and further claimed that the election "would not have even been a contest".
