President Donald Trump has conceded that his term in the White House is coming to an end, promising an orderly transition despite continuing to reject the election outcome following the Electoral College votes being certified.
The commander-in-chief said in a statement he still disagrees with the outcome, again reiterating his claims of widespread fraud despite having consistently failed to provide evidence of this on a scale which could overturn Joe Biden’s victory.
“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 shared by Dan Scavino, White House deputy chief of staff for communications.
“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!”
