Hi
Looking for help with my last clue in this week's crossword.
24 across:
Trump's position regarding White House: "Expose result" (7)
I have all the Down answers, so
O?T?O?E, but can't be sure if it's OUTCOME, OUTVOTE, OUTDONE - or possibly something else...
Thoughts welcome. Thanks in advance.

There's been a fair bit of discussion on earlier Private Eye threads. I can't remember if anyone came up with a definitive answer!

I've now seen the thread on this clue. Agree that the clue is not very precise. OUTCOME makes most sense to me. Thanks.
thanks
At least no one will wasting a postage stamp on this Crossword. The clue is rubbish.
/// At least no one will wasting a postage stamp on this Crossword ///

Very true, the Eye aren't accepting any postal entries during the pandemic, e-mail entries only.
Personally I see nothing wrong with this clue.

Cryptic part

Trumps position regarding White House = OUT
Expose = COME

Definition

Result = OUTCOME.

I find it difficult to parse OUTVOTE or OUTDONE
Am not sure why expose = come, canary42?
I can't find 'come' as a synonym for 'expose' in any list
Question Author
Replying to my own question but I was taking the "expose" part of the clue as "OUT" it was the other half that was baffling me...
