After weeks of refusing to concede defeat, Donald Trump has finally conceded defeat and announced that he will hand over power to the newly elected president on January 20, 2021. In his first tweet since the lifting of the ban on his Twitter account, US President Donald Trump said in a conciliatory tone that he was upset by the riots at the Capitol Hill building. He emphasized the need for a peaceful transition of power, saying that the new administration would take over on January 20. Trump added that those who attacked Congress did not represent the United States and would pay the price. Trump also acknowledged for the first time that Biden would be the next president of the United States.

Trump’s remarks came after White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany condemned Wednesday’s riot in Congress, which confirmed that President Trump and his administration strongly condemned the incident. The U.S. official stressed that those who besieged Congress do not represent the values ​​of the Trump administration. “Let me make it clear that the violence we witnessed at the Capitol was horrific, reprehensible and contrary to American values,” the spokesman said. The president and his administration have condemned him in the strongest terms. Kayleigh McEnany said what happened in Congress was unacceptable and that those who broke the law should be prosecuted. Pro-Trump protesters stormed the congressional building on Wednesday to prevent lawmakers from announcing President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, according to Electoral College results. At least four people were killed and more than 50 were injured in clashes between police and armed protesters. A White House spokesman also confirmed that US administration officials were working to ensure a smooth and orderly transfer of power.

On the other hand, during one of the most violent days in recent American history, the US Congress has confirmed the victory of Joe Biden in the presidential election and making him the 46th President of the United States. As a result of the commotion, lawmakers in the Senate were also evacuated and proceedings in the House were adjourned. However, after a curfew and a 15-day state of emergency were imposed by Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, lawmakers returned to the House. Police arrested 52 people, most of them for violating the curfew, and recovered two pipe bombs from Republican and Democratic headquarters. Police have seized weapons, including pistols, guns and explosives, the police chief added. He said the riots began at 3:15 pm when a mob stormed the security of Capitol Hill and continued for several hours. Lawmakers resume ratification after police evicted protesters from the Capitol Hill area, with both the Senate and House of Representatives voting twice to reject attempts to change election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania done. Vice President and Senate President Mike Pence presided over all joint sessions.

Republican senators had planned to withdraw electoral votes in six states with vague results, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, even after the attack. He continued his plan but the senators refused to sign the two objections after being attacked by a mob on Wednesday. Earlier, 93 senators rejected Arizona’s objection, with only six voting, while Pennsylvania’s objection was rejected by 92 votes to seven. In the 435-member House, 282 voted in favor of rejecting the objection, while 138 voted in favor. Yogurt was used. No Democrat voted against the objections, while dozens of Republicans voted against. The meeting decided that out of 538 electoral votes, Joe Biden and Harris received 306 votes, while Trump and Pence received 232 votes. Pence called Joe Biden and Harris winners of the 2020 election and said he would be sworn in on January 20. After the meeting, the chaplain of the US Senate offered prayers and expressed regret over the deaths in the violent clashes on Wednesday. Although Joe Biden will now become the 46th president in US history on January 20, violent events have blurred the certification process. Republican Mitt Romney said what happened today was the result of a provocation by the US president.
