US President Donald Trump has finally given President-elect Joe Biden the green light to begin his transition to the White House, the clearest sign that Trump now understands he lost the election.
Despite Trump’s claims of electoral fraud, his campaign’s legal attempts to change the election have been roundly rejected by judges across the country who note that there is no evidence for showing Democrats rigged the Nov. 3 contest for Biden.
Until Monday evening, Trump had refused to allow General Services Administration (GSA) to confirm the Democrat as president-elect — a formality that kept him from accessing federal distribution plans for a potential COVID-19 vaccine, top-secret intelligence briefings, and other critical resources.
In a tweet on Monday, November 23, Trump said he had told Emily Murphy, his handpicked administrator of the General Services Administration, to sign the appropriate papers allowing Biden’s transition team access to the federal resources he has been withholding while waging a baseless court battle to subvert the results of the election.
Though Trump didn’t outrightly concede, he cryptically insisted that his case for overturning Biden’s victory “STRONGLY continues.”
