Matthews said Trump lost by seven million votes in 2020, and by four million in 2016 (but won the electoral vote in that election).
He said it was important for the person who lost to admit that they lost, and Trump was wrong for refusing to do it.
Many Trump supporters still think Trump should be president and that Biden was elected fraudulently.
