Earlier, Trump had tagged a New York Times tweet with a map of the US saying that he had received 1.01 crore more votes than the previous election, including those in Hispanic majority areas. It is noteworthy that last week the mainstream media declared Joe Biddle the winner of the election. In order to be elected President of America, 270 electoral votes are required in the 538-member Electoral College. Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden has garnered more than 270 electoral votes. However, the formal results of the US presidential election have not been announced yet.
Preparations for Biden’s swearing continue
The preparations for the swearing in of newly elected President Joe Biden are going on loudly, even after the US President Donald Trump did not get the support. In America, the newly elected president is officially introduced to the officials of the Intelligence Department, but this time it is not happening. In such a situation, Biden held a digital meeting with intelligence, defense and diplomatic experts on Tuesday. None of these officials are currently associated with the US government. In such a situation, questions are being raised whether Biden is being given the latest information about the dangers facing the country. The newly elected Vice President Kamla Harris was officially briefed on Tuesday. He held a meeting with a member of the Senate Intelligence Affairs Committee. The current US administration is not allowing Biden to discuss the situation with the Corona virus. In such a situation, representatives of Biden have planned to meet the pharma companies directly this week. Biden and his team are busy preparing for the steps to be taken soon after getting power in January, due to no indication of Trump being handed over pre-emptive power.
Transfer of power will be done in a disciplined manner and on time.
On the other hand, the top Republican leader and Senator Mitch McConnell in America has said that the transfer of power from Donald Trump to the Biden administration will be in a ‘disciplined’ manner and at the ‘right time’. Last week, the mainstream media declared Joe Biden the winner in the presidential election, but Trump, who refused to accept it, claimed his victory. McClain, the leader of the majority in the Senate, said that the next administration would transfer power in a peaceful manner.
When asked in this regard, he told reporters in Capitol Hill, “We are going to transfer power from this administration to the next administration in a disciplined manner.” He said, “Whatever we say about this is clearly all irrelevant. All this will happen at the right time and we will administer the oath to the new administration on 20 January. He said that in all presidential elections the country goes through this process and there is a way to deal with disputes and call it a court. He said, ‘Whatever the disputes are, the courts of different states are watching them.’ Significantly, many lawmakers of the Republican Party have directly or indirectly accepted that Biden has won. According to a report by the Wall Street General, during a vote in the Senate on Tuesday evening, many Republican senators also congratulated newly elected Vice President Kamala Harris.
