Republican leaders in the U.S. Congress refused to adopt a resolution recognizing Joe Biden as president of the country, reports TASS, referring to a written statement by the leader of the democratic majority of the House of Representatives of Congress, Stanie Hoyer.
As noted, the congressman proposed to adopt a resolution at a meeting of the Joint Congressional Committee on the inauguration ceremony of the U.S. President. This committee includes both Democrats and Republicans.
“The Republicans voted against Hoyer’s proposal, according to which the committee announces preparations for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and President-elect Kamala Harris in coordination with the Biden inauguration committee,” the document says.
Among those who rejected the resolution were Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, Committee chairman Roy Blunt, and House Republican minority leader Kevin McCarthy.
