Trump Team Had Focused On Concession Speech


sources told NBC News, of the two speeches Donald Trump’s campaign prepared for Election Night on Tuesday, more time was spent crafting a draft to concede rather than claim victory.
The campaign had expressed confidence in public, but their own data showed only a narrow path to the 270 electorates needed to win the White House. The senior team felt pressure to live up to the moment and acknowledge the outcome of a potential defeat by Hillary Clinton
Sources said, the first draft of a victory speech was no longer just a placeholder but needed revisions to reflect the scope of the night. That draft was revised in real-time as Trump, Pence, Chris Christie and writer and policy adviser Steve Miller, huddled with to find the right tone and message after the upset many inside Trump Tower once considered improbable.
