The Republicans refused to publicly recognize Biden as the elected president of the United States.
The Republicans voted against a resolution in both houses of the U.S. Congress committee to inaugurate the president, confirming the committee’s preparations to transfer presidential authority to Democrat candidate Joe Biden in the recent election.
Such a vote blocked the resolution, and the Republicans refused to publicly recognize Biden elected president of the United States.
In particular, Mitch McConnell, leader of the Republican majority in the Senate, and Kevin McCarthy, head of the Republican minority in the House of Representatives, voted against the resolution.
Earlier research by The Washington Post showed that only 27 out of 249 Congressman Republicans recognized Biden as the winner in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
Voting in the United States took place on November 3. Most of the votes have already been counted, but the official ballot processing results in the United States will be known later.
