President Donald Trump on Thursday affirmed that there will be an orderly transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden.
A statement from Trump tweeted by White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications and Director of Social Media Dan Scavino came following unprecedented scenes of a disorderly mob running amok in the U.S. Capitol after a “Stop the Steal” protest morphed into a wild riot that surged through the Capitol Building, forcing a lockdown and triggering gunfire.
“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 tweeted statement read.
“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!”
