US President Donald Trump has formally conceded defeat to his political rival Joe Biden in the presidential election.
According to the foreign news agency ‘AP’, Donald Trump admitted his defeat in the November 3 presidential election for the first time.
The “formal transfer” was announced by Congress on January 20, after the vote count ended, confirming the victory of President-elect Joe Biden.
It is believed that Donald Trump’s statement of defeat came at a time when a crowd of his supporters stormed the Capitol Hill building and witnessed unprecedented scenes of destruction.
Meanwhile, members of Congress were forced to go into hiding, offices were vandalized and Congress affairs were suspended for six hours.
“Although I do not fully agree with the outcome of the presidential election and the facts are clear to me, there will still be an orderly transition on January 20,” Donald Trump said in a statement posted on Twitter via his social media director. ۔
“While this represents the end of the longest term in presidential history, it is only the beginning of our fight to make America great again,” Trump said.
This is the first time that Donald Trump has conceded defeat, while he has previously mentioned electoral fraud in every meeting and refused to accept the results.
On the other hand, the Department of Justice, federal courts and state governments have repeatedly convinced Donald Trump that the vote was fair and free.
The lawmakers returned to the House of Representatives following a curfew and a 15-day state of emergency imposed by Washington Mayor Muriel Brown following an attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters.
Washington Police Chief Robert J. Conte told a news briefing that a woman had been shot dead and that three people had died of medical problems due to a lack of timely assistance due to roadblocks. I was gone.
Fourteen policemen were also injured in the attacks by angry protesters, he said.
