A former political adviser to Joe Biden said US President Donald Trump could have already of acknowledged his “impending doom” with one little word.

As Mr Trump arrived at his campaign headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, this morning he maintained he will be re-elected, but he conceded “losing is never easy” — at least not for him.

Moises “Moe” Vela believes the use of the “l-word” could be indicative of the 45th President’s mental state.

“For the first time I think since I’ve ever heard Donald Trump for four years, use the l-word,” the political aide said.

“He said ‘it’s hard to lose, especially for me.’

“I don’t know whether he’s acknowledging impending doom. I don’t want to get ahead of myself and get out in front of our skis either.”

Mr Vela remains cautiously optimistic Mr Biden will become the 46th President of the United States.

“The paths for Joe Biden to achieve victory are far more numerous than Donald Trump at this point. I think it looks very favourable for Joe Biden,” he said.

While Mr Biden is ahead in national polls, and is tipped to win key states such as Pennsylvania and Georgia, Mr Vela pointed out that polls can be wrong.

He then pointed to the case of Democrat Hilary Clinton’s 2016 run; after being tipped to win the presidency she sensationally lost to Mr Trump.

Mr Vella said the event left him with “political PTSD”.

“Four years ago at this very moment in time we were measuring drapes for Hillary Clinton’s Oval Office and she didn’t get to enter that office as president,” he said.

“Every moment I thought, ‘I think this looks good. I think we’re going to get there and cross the finish line.’ Something pulls me back, and it’s that fear, that anxiety that stems from 2016.

“Anything can happen.”
