Trump Promises ‘Orderly Transition’ After Biden Certified as President-Elect

President Donald Trump early Thursday promised that the transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden would be orderly while vowing to continue to fight to better America.

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted,” Trump said in a statement.

“While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

Congress certified Biden as president-elect around 3:45 a.m.

The joint session to count votes was interrupted by protesters who stormed the Capitol, leading to a long delay. A bolstered group of law enforcement officers, which included reinforcements from the U.S. Marshals Service, the FBI, and other agencies, ejected protesters and allowed legislators to reconvene and count electoral votes.

Objections to two states, Arizona and Pennsylvania, were filed with the required support but were ultimately voted down.

Biden received 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232.

Trump had called on Republicans to object to votes from swing states in which fraud was alleged or proven. Those included Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Objections require support from at least one senator and senators only supported objections to two states.

Biden’s team had criticized the planned vote objections. After the Senate voted 93-6 against the one to Arizona’s certification, Ronald Klain, Biden’s incoming chief of staff, called the vote “an overwhelming rejection of the baseless, anti-democratic challenge to the will of the voters of Arizona.”

Trump during a rally on Wednesday morning accused Democrats of stealing the election and the “fake news media” of supporting them.

“That’s what they’ve done and what they’re doing. We will never give up. We will never concede, it doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved,” he told a crowd in Washington, near the Capitol.
