Promises To Stay Active to “Make America Great Again”
President Trump issued a statement early Thursday promising to commit to an orderly transition of power for the President-elect Joe Biden on January 20th.
Early Thursday morning, Joe Biden was certified as the winner of the election by Congress. Vice President Mike Pence presided over the joint session in what will be known as one of the most difficult modern day moments for a peaceful transition of power. On Wednesday afternoon, a mob stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday. More than 50 people have been arrested and four people died, including a woman who was shot inside the Capitol.
The Vice President read out that tally of 538 votes. Joe Biden won with 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump’s 232.
Although President Trump agreed to the transition in a statement released by the White House, he also said he continued to “totally disagree with the outcome of the election.” In addition, he promised to continue being a presence in politics writing, “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!”
