US President Donald Trump has promised a peaceful handover of power after Congress confirmed that Joe Biden is the winner of the presidential election.
President Trump stated that even though he completely disagrees with the outcome of the election, supported by the facts and many unanswered questions about the correctness of the election, he will still transfer the office control to Joe Biden on January 20th.
He also mentioned that he will continue the legal struggle to ensure that only legal votes are counted and that the end of his first term is only the beginning of a struggle to make America great again.
Pence had to declare Biden as a winner
Political commentators believe this was the only logical and expected move President Trump could make after House and the Senate both ruled out the possibility that the election was irregular.
Mike Pence, the U.S. vice president, after confirming and certifying the Pennsylvania and Arizona elections votes, had to declare the final number of votes valid, according to which Biden and Harris won 306 votes, and Trump and Pence 232.
At that point, all objections to the election result became irrelevant, and many Republican candidates unanimously stated that despite their disagreement with the results, the only practical and real option was to acknowledge Biden’s victory, given the current political, social, and health crisis the country is facing.
Did Trump admit defeat?
Many believe that President Trump’s statement in a conciliatory tone was just a reaction to the protests that erupted on Capitol Hill, and served to calm the situation and prevent new casualties.
Trump has clearly announced the continuation of the battle to prove electoral fraud, and efforts to return American society to its original and traditional values by strengthening the economy and furtherly profiling the country as the world’s leading economic, military and political power.
But there are fewer and fewer options for Trump and all those who consider the election irregular.
