The president released a statement shortly after president-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory was certified by Congress.
“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” the president said in a statement posted to Twitter by his communication advisor Dan Scavino.
“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

Objections to two states, Arizona and Pennsylvania, were filed with the required support but were ultimately voted down, despite the strong evidence suggesting the state's were rigged in Biden's favor Biden received 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232.
Trump had urged Republicans to object to votes from states in which fraud was alleged or proven. Those included Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Objections require support from at least one senator and senators only supported objections to two specific states.
Biden’s team had criticized the planned objections. After the Senate voted 93-6 against the one to Arizona’s certification, Ronald Klain, Biden’s incoming chief of staff, called the vote “an overwhelming rejection of the baseless, anti-democratic challenge to the will of the voters of Arizona.” but again, why would the team gaining from the voter fraud admit anything, especially if they planned it.
Trump during a rally on Wednesday morning accused Democrats of stealing the election and the “fake news media” of helping the process.
