President Donald Trump has assured that he’s committed to an “orderly transition” of power early Thursday after a chaotic day on Capitol Hill by mobs.
President Trump issued a statement shortly after President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory was certified by Congress, he wrote on Twitter:
“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,” the president said in a statement posted to Twitter by his communications adviser Dan Scavino.
“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!”
Trump had addressed a rally on Wednesday to encourage a challenge to the Electoral College certification process. After the rally, a mob of demonstrators pressured their way into the Capitol building.
One person among the mob was shot dead, and the police arrested more than 50 people.
Congress later reconvened and, after two Republican attempts to challenge the election results finalized the process early Thursday.
