Former Trump communications director Alyssa Farah says the ex-president admitted he lost the 2020 election before advisers convinced him otherwise claiming ‘that’s scary’
- Former White House director of strategic communications Alyssa Farah said it’s ‘scary’ that her ex-boss Donald Trump doesn’t know he lost the election
- Said that Trump admitted shortly after the election that he knew he lost
- ‘But then, you know, folks got around him, they got information in front of him and I think his mind genuinely might have been changed about that,’ Farah said
Donald Trump‘s former communications director Alyssa Farah said the ex-president previously admitted he lost the 2020 presidential election and said it’s ‘scary’ his aides and allies were able to change his mind.
‘I know he wants to protect his ego at all costs,’ CNN anchor Pamela Brown said to Farah. ‘But Trump has to know he lost because I remember at the time reporting, talking to folks in the White House saying, ‘Yeah, he knows he lost, he’s just coming around to it.”
‘He knew,’ Farah admitted. ‘He told me shortly after that he knew he lost.’
She added: ‘But then, you know, folks got around him, they got information in front of him and I think his mind genuinely might have been changed about that and that’s scary because he did lose.’
‘And the facts are out there and they’ve lost every court case, they’ve had countless times to prove any sort of fraud and haven’t been able to. So it is actually kind of more scary that he believes it.’
Farah served as the White House director of strategic communications for eight months under Trump, serving in several other administration roles before that including as then-Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary for two years and the Pentagon press secretary for seven months before coming back to the White House.

She quit Trump’s comms team just one month before he vacated office and after the president – along with his lawyer at the time, Rudy Giuliani – launched several legal challenges over the outcome of the presidential election.
A month after Farah quit, Trump held his infamous rally in front of the White House on January 6 – the day Congress moved to certify the election for Biden and a trove of Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol to stop them from doing so.
Farah was quick to turn on her old boss following the attack.
The day before the Capitol riot, Farah publicly condemned Trump supporters for harassing Senator Mitt Romney and immediately denounced the attack after it happened.
On January 8, 2021 she blamed Trump for inciting the insurrection and suggested that he should resign as the House moved to impeach the outgoing president for the second time of his administration.
Trump hasn’t given up on his claims of election fraud and insisting at every rally since he’s left office that Democrats cheated by using widespread mail-in ballot provisions to rig the election for Biden.
The former president has tried to block the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack from obtaining White House documents from when he was president and has tried to prevent them from subpoenaing his former aides by claiming executive privilege.
On Sunday morning, Trump sent out a statement questioning why Congress isn’t investigating Black Lives Matter rioters and election fraud rather than focusing on probing the January 6 attack.
‘Why aren’t they investigating the people and states who cheated on the election causing the protest of January 6th?’ the ex-president sent in a statement from his Save America political action committee. ‘Why aren’t they investigating the people who ruthlessly and violently burned down and took over Democrat-run cities, beating and murdering people along the way?’
He continued: ‘Instead they are viciously investigating those who protested the November 3rd Presidential Election, the Crime of the Century. No investigations on Election Fraud, but if anybody was near the Capitol waving an American flag, they’ve had nothing but trouble.’
‘American Patriots are not going to allow this subversion of justice to continue, including the use of prosecutors, local, state, and federal, to torment and destroy innocent people. All this, while our Country is going to hell!’
