Trump Accepts Transition To Biden Administration

Outgoing United States President Donald Trump has still yet to concede that he lost the 2020 Presidential election. However, Trump now accepts that a formal US transition should begin for President-elect Joe Biden to take office.

After Biden’s victory in the state of Michigan was certified, The General Services Administration (GSA) said it was acknowledging Mr Biden as the “apparent winner”, with President Trump vowing to keep contesting the election, but conceding that the GSA, which is responsible for the official handover of power must “do what needs to be done”.

“I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country,” Trump said in a tweet. “She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.”

Administrator Emily Murphy, who was appointed by Trump to the GSA, said that she was freeing up $6.3m in funds to be made available to the president-elect, saying that “recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results” led her to take this course of action.

“To be clear I did not receive any direction to delay my determination,” Murphy said in a letter to Mr Biden, as reported by BBC.

“I did, however, receive threats online, by phone, and by mail directed at my safety, my family, my staff, and even my pets in an effort to coerce me into making this determination prematurely.

“Even in the face of thousands of threats I have remained committed to upholding the law.”

The certification of Biden’s victory in Michigan coincides with the confirmation of key electoral wins in Georgia and Pennsylvania, where several more voter fraud cases were dismissed in the courts yesterday.

Donald Trump is steadily coming to the realisation that he cannot prolong his term in office, as the staff surrounding him all appear to be jumping ship as he struggles to hold on to power in the United States.
