Donald Trump a admis que sa présidence touche à sa fin.
(Washington) Donald Trump admitted early Thursday, after Congress certified Joe Biden’s election to the White House, that his presidency was coming to an end and promised an « orderly transition. »
« Even though I completely disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts support me, there will be an orderly transition on January 20, » he wrote in a statement. « This represents the end of one of the best first presidential terms and it is only the beginning of our fight to make America great again, » added the Republican.
In the middle of the night, and after the rejection of objections from Republican elected officials, Vice President Mike Pence confirmed Thursday the victory of Democrat Joe Biden, with 306 voters against 232 for the outgoing president, in front of both houses gathered for an extraordinary session.
Supposed to be a mere formality, this certification turned to « insurrection », « almost to sedition » in the words of Joe Biden, when a crowd of supporters of the outgoing president invaded the Capitol, interrupting the debates.
