US Election: Pompeo Promises ‘Smooth Transition To Trump’s Second Term’ by debbiebianca2(f): 8:54pm On Nov 10, 2020

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday promised the world a “smooth transition” after US elections but refused to recognize President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, saying Donald Trump will remain in power.

“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo said in an at times testy news conference when asked about contacts with the Biden team.

“The world should have every confidence that the transition necessary to make sure that the State Department is functional today… with the president who is in office on January 20 a minute after noon will be successful,” he said, referring to the date of the presidential inauguration.

World leaders including almost all US allies have congratulated Biden, who has achieved unassailable leads in key states as well as a commanding edge in the nationwide popular vote.

But Trump has refused to concede the November 3 election and has alleged massive fraud, calling for recounts and legal action.

Asked if the United States can still issue statements calling for free elections around the world, Pompeo said the question was “ridiculous.”

“This department cares deeply to make sure that elections around the world are safe and secure and free and fair, and my officers risk their lives to ensure that that happens,” he said.

The Democrats and their fake news media allies banked on Trump conceding and throwing in the towel grin. a very big mistake.

They never learn. A man like Trump would never give in to the massive mail in voter fraud carried out by the Democrats.

Trump's second term is inevitable

Trump and his enablers wants to cause a civil war in America. He has lost the election and popular vote but is refusing to concede. Even if there's a recount that he so eagerly wants, it won't change the outcome of the election.

Biden's victory over Trump is the most votes a candidate has ever had in an American election. Biden's lead is higher than the lead in the three states (Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania) Trump used to enter the White House in 2016.... But Hillary conceded the election to Trump.

If this was an African country, the Americans would be shouting and calling the leaders dictators.

Mods: (lalasticlala, Dominique, Mynd44) Try and edit your bot for this foreign affairs room.... The other day I booked space to post, only to see that I've been banned by a bot for booking space.... Something that has never happened before.

@ BOLDED.

I’m so sceptic & curious to know the world leaders who are so close to US that congratulated BIDEN.

Hope the OP isn’t counting Jubril the imposter as an achiever!
Because I’m yet to see Puttin, China Prsd, Turkey , iran and co. Congratulating that by-passer of a President
