President Donald Trump has pledged that the reins of government will be freely handed over to Joe Biden on January 20th.
Trump has essentially conceded the election to Biden with this statement, though he continues to say that the election was stolen and is illicit.
However, Trump did say several weeks ago that if the Electoral College vote for Biden was certified, then he would vacate the White House.
“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 wrote in a statement.
The president’s statement was shared by Trump’s Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino on Twitter.
…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!”

Of course, Scavino had to be the one to tweet out the statement because Twitter had blocked his account.
Trump continues to vow to fight for every “legal” vote.
But it is increasingly clear that the fight is over, and we will have Joe Biden as our president and the country will be materially harmed as a result.
The 2020 election was successfully stolen, and the Republican Party stood idly by and let it happen.
