Trump finally concede defeat to Joe Biden, promised orderly transition of power

At last, outgoing US President Donald Trump on Thursday conceded defeat shortly after the Congress formally certified Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ victory in the 2020 November elections. 

Although adamant on his claim of electoral malpractice, Trump said that there will be “an orderly transition” to Biden’s presidency on January 20.

This was after a joint session of US Congress certified the victory of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

Trump said, 

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. 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, he said, hinting at his return in the 2024 US election campaign.

Trump has been vehemently opposing the US election result while also alleging voter fraud. He had so far refused to cooperate to enable a smooth transition to the Biden administration.

Presidential elections were held on November 3. Biden and Harris won a record number of popular votes, more than 80 millions and earned as many as 306 Electoral College votes. However, incumbent president Trump did not accept defeat and maintained that there was a massive fraud in the electoral conduct.
