President Trump Statement: “There Will Be an Orderly Transition on January 20th”
President Donald Trump’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Dan Scavino, released a statement from Trump on Twitter acknowledging the end of the election and declaring that there will be an “orderly transition” on January 2oth, when Joe Biden enters the White House.
This comes after the capitol building was stormed after Trump spoke at the “Save America” rally yesterday.
…fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
Trump was not able to post the statement on Twitter himself because he is currently blocked. The service was unhappy with the video Trump put out in response to a mob of protesters invading the Capitol Building.
An earlier version of this article included the offending video that got Trump suspended from Twitter – but we had to remove it because Dan sharing the article got his account also suspended temporarily.
Trump’s pledge to have an “orderly transition” seems to be an acknowledgment that Joe Biden has officially been elected President and there are no more cards to play legislatively after Congress has certified Joe Biden’s win.
