President didn’t concede but his statement was as close as he’s come to conceding an election he falsely insists was stolen,

President Trump now says there “will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” after Congress concluded the electoral vote count certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory and after a day of violence when his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Mr. Trump said in a statement tweeted by his social media director Dan Scavino, “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.”
He adds: “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.”

Mr. Trump’s account was temporarily locked by Twitter Wednesday, necessitating the use of Scavino’s account.
The president didn’t concede but his statement was as close as he’s come to conceding an election he falsely insists was stolen.
Mr. Trump has spent the last two months making baseless allegations of mass voter fraud that have been rejected by dozens of courts and Republican officials, including his former attorney general, William Barr.
Vice President Mike Pence presided over the formal session that ended early Thursday morning tallying the electoral college vote.
