Is it a crime if a President loses the election & refuses to peacefully hand over power, could he lawlessly hold onto power?

Trump did say, he won't commit to peaceful power transfer, and said he wants to get rid of the ballots for continuation of his presidency. 

Now how is this legal, if Biden wins and then in January is sworn in?

According to this article, Trump is deciding he will remain president no matter the election result.


Trump said it himself that there will be no transfer of power if he loses the election. He said it in this Youtube video;

    YES it is a crime, but he has violated the constitution and not been held responsible,   He has basically promised a civil war to retain the Democracy so many have died to protect since we became independent from England.,

    It's a crime against democracy--which Trump and his ape cult have no interest in at all.  All they want is more blini and caviar with their vodka if you know what I'm talkin bout, buddy!

    Trump has been slowly but surely convincing his base that they cannot trust the media, the government or ANYONE but himself, so he's set all the cards in play for when he loses to tell them that he didn't really lose - the Deep State has stolen it from him, so they must support him as he refuses to give up the office.

    If Trump refuses then he can be escorted from the White House by force.

    Like any other person committing Criminal trespass.
