Trump’s national security advisor announced readiness to cooperate with the new administration
U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security advisor Robert O’Brien assured Monday that he would ensure a professional handover to Democrat Joe Biden’s team if he was named the winner of the 2020 presidential election. O’Brien said the impression at the moment is that he will.
Trump claims election fraud and insists that he will be declared the winner in a number of states after hearing the lawsuits.
Speaking at an international security forum, O’Brien said that while he had hoped for Trump’s re-election, he would work with the new administration, led by Biden and his vice president, Kamala Harris.
“If there is a new administration, it deserves some time to implement its policies,” O’Brien said. – If Biden and Harris are recognized as winners, and the impression is now obvious, the National Security Council will have a very professional transition process, there’s no doubt about it.
Trump has not yet been able to provide evidence that would disprove Biden’s alleged victory in the Electoral College. By December 8, states should have approved the results of the general vote and appointed voters who will officially elect a new president on December 14.
O’Brien said Biden appears ready to form a professional national security team.
“The most important thing is that all this is happening in the United States,” he said. – We’ve had a peaceful and successful transfer of power, even during the most difficult periods,” O’Brien said.
