The Republican Candidate in the November 3, United States of America, USA, Presidential election, President Donald Trump, has released the poll results showing that he should not concede to the Democratic Party Candidate, President-elect Joe Biden,
President Trump made this known in a tweet, on Tuesday.
“Should President Trump concede to Biden? Poll Results: No: 190,593 (98.9 percent); Yes: 2,181 (1.1 percent) Total Votes: 192,774. For the good of our country, we must prevail!”
While President Trump continues to contest the outcome of the election in court, the General Services Administration, GSA, on Monday, acknowledged Biden as the apparent winner of the election, following weeks of inaction.
Emily Murphy, who heads the GSA, the government Agency meant to ease Biden’s transition into the White House, wrote to the President-elect.
“Because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, I have determined that you may access the post-election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request”, Murphy said in a letter to Biden, citing the Presidential Transition Act of 1963.
President Trump also called on his Agencies to cooperate with the GSA Chief.
“I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same”, he tweeted, but noted that court cases against election results continue.
The designation triggers a formal transition process, giving Biden and his team access to current Agency Officials, briefing books, and other government resources, including some $6 million in funding.
The announcement is a “needed step” to “getting the pandemic under control, and our economy back on track”, Yohannes Abraham, the Executive Director of the Biden-Harris transition, said in an emailed statement.
“In the days ahead, Transition Officials will begin meeting with Federal Officials, to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our National Security interests, and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration’s efforts to hollow out government Agencies.”
