Washington, US | THE INDEPENDENT & XINHUA | US President Donald Trump has conceded defeat in the elections for the first time, but still signed off a statement by saying his, was the ” greatest first term in presidential history.”
The President was under immense pressure after a chaotic day in which his supporters stormed the Capitol Hill building.
U.S. President-elect Joe Biden condemned what he called “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, after some supporters of the Republican incumbent, Donald Trump, broke into the building, forcing electoral vote counting to halt.
“This is not protest, it’s insurrection,” Biden said in Wilmington, Delaware. “This is not dissent. It’s disorder. It’s chaos. It borders on sedition.”
The Democrat went on saying that he’s calling on Trump to “go on national television now to fulfill his oath and defend the Constitution and demand an end to this siege.”
Statement by President Donald J. Trump on the Electoral Certification:
“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. 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!”
