The White House advisor said that the United States is distinguished by a peaceful transfer of power even in the most difficult times
Donald Trump, a senior adviser to the U.S. president, seems to have admitted that the president has little chance of being declared the winner of the presidential election, although the head of state himself and other key aides still hope for a second term.
“See, if Biden’s tandem and Harris are declared the winner – obviously, that’s what it looks like right now – there will be a very professional transition from the National Security Council. There’s no doubt about it,” White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said in a speech at the virtual Global Security Forum.
“The great thing about the United States is that we’re passing the baton and making a peaceful, successful transition, even in the most challenging of times,” O’Brien added.
O’Brien said this at a time when Trump continues to insist on social media that the election was rigged and that he must be declared the winner. On November 7, the media announced former Vice President Joe Biden the winner.
“Radical left-wing democrats, working with their partners, the media of fake news, are trying to steal these elections. We won’t let them,” he tweeted shortly before O’Brien’s speech.
“I won the election! – he tweeted on Monday and questioned the validity of the ongoing recount in Georgia in the third.
But O’Brien took a more conciliatory tone on Monday.
“If there’s a new administration, they deserve to have time to come and implement their policies,” he said. – There will be very professional people coming to these positions, many of whom have already been here.
