Trump: 'There Will Be An Orderly Transition On January 20'

Description:

President Trump issued a statement that again made false claims about the election but said there would be "an orderly transition on January 20th."


President Trump has just released a statement committing to "an orderly transition on January 20th" but repeating his unsubstantiated claims of electoral fraud.

"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," he said, in a comment published on his spokesperson's Twitter account. Twitter has temporarily blocked the president from using his own account.

"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 added.

More than 60 legal cases by Trump's campaign team challenging the November result have failed.
Outgoing #US President Donald #Trump on Thursday offered the clearest signal yet that he will voluntarily leave office on January 20, saying there will be an "orderly #transition" to Joe #Biden's presidency. "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," Trump said in a statement minutes after the US Congress formally certified Biden's victory. FRANCE 24's Chief Foreign Affairs Editor Rob Parsons tells us more.
The US Congress has certified Joe Biden as the winner of November's presidential election - after a day of chaos and violence in Washington. The session was forced into emergency recess when a violent mob of President Trump's supporters forced their way into the Capitol building to try and stop lawmakers from certifying the vote. Congress reconvened later for proceedings that went late into the night - and saw several Republican lawmakers abandoning their planned objections to the election result.
The unprecedented scenes unfolded after Trump had urged his supporters to rally at the Capitol as lawmakers debated the results. After Biden's victory was certified, Trump released this statement.
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!
U.S. President Donald Trump now says there 'will be an orderly transition on January 20th' after Congress concluded the electoral vote count certifying president-elect Joe Biden's victory. In the same statement, Trump maintained: 'I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out.'
