First Lady Melania Trump has advised President Donald Trump to accept his election loss to Joe Biden, CNN quoted a source as saying on Sunday.
“Though the first lady has not publicly commented on the election, she has privately weighed in with her opinion, the source noted,” CNN reported.
“She has offered it, as she often does,” the source said.

CNN quoted two other sources as saying that Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has approached the President about conceding the election.
CNN said it stands by its reporting after Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller in a tweet on Sunday morning denied that Kushner had approached Trump to concede.
“This story is not true,” said Miller. “Jared has advised @realDonaldTrump to pursue all available legal remedies to ensure accuracy.”
