New Delhi: After weeks of waiting, President Donald Trump’s administration has finally cleared the way for the newly elected US President Joe Biden to go to the White House on Monday. But at the same time, Trump also made it clear that he would continue his fight over the election results.
Trump accused him of fraud in counting the votes in the presidential election without providing any evidence. However, he still has not accepted his Democratic rival’s victory. But Trump announced that his staff would support him in Biden’s crucial innings.
Joe Biden won by a 306 state-by-state electoral vote. He received more than the 270 votes needed to win. However, his rival Donald Trump received only 232 electoral votes. Biden also gained more than 6 million in the national populist vote.
The US-elected president has begun naming members of his team, including tapping on State Department chief Antony Blinken, without waiting for government money or Trump’s concession. But critics have accused the president of undermining the ability of the next administration to fight the corono virus epidemic, along with undermining American democracy and refusing to accept the consequences.
On Monday, the General Services Administration, the federal agency that should sign the president’s changes, told Biden that he could formally begin the hand-over process. GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said in a letter that Biden would gain access to the resources she was denied due to legal challenges to reverse her victory.
This means that Biden’s team will have federal funds and an official office until January 20. This paves the way for Biden and Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris to receive regular national security briefings that Trump gets.
Trump and his advisers said he would continue to walk the legal path, but his decision to pursue Murphy prompted Biden’s administration to move forward with a change, even as the White House deemed it Approaching time to move forward.
