Will Trump still be respected if he doesn’t admit defeat?

There is nothing dishonorable about losing.
Failure is even the best way to discover what doesn't work in order to adapt and do better.
Donald Trump still got 72 million votes. That's huge, and Donald Trump should understand that that doesn't make him a loser.
If Donald Trump is laughed at, it's not for his defeat. Losing doesn't make you a loser.
What makes you a loser is how you will react to that defeat. John McCain lost by a wide margin to Barack Obama in 2008, but he came out on top in the 2008 presidential election.
让你成为失败者的是你对失败的反应。约翰·麦凯恩(John McCain)在2008年以较大优势输给了巴拉克·奥巴马(Barack Obama)，但他在2008年的总统选举中脱颖而出。
How did he do that?
By making a classy concession speech that showed that John McCain was a great statesman. As soon as he admitted his defeat, it was very quick, he conceded it to Barack Obama, wishing him the best for the United States to succeed.
Once the presidential election is over, the most important thing is that the victorious candidate makes the United States progress. Donald Trump is not respected because he refuses to concede defeat.
He speaks of rigged election without proof, and attacks the legitimacy of Joe Biden.
Donald Trump is a loser because he simply attacks American democracy. That is the main problem.
