Trump promised to peacefully hand over power to Biden on January 20. At the same time, the Republican still does not agree with the results of the presidential elections.
The political situation in the United States after the presidential elections has deteriorated significantly. On the eve, supporters of the Republican leader staged large-scale protests, which spilled over into the storming of the Capitol.
As a result of the incident, four people died. The moral blame for the incident was laid on Donald Trump, who all this time did not stop claiming that his votes in the elections were stolen.
Apparently, the politician was informed that the current situation could turn him sideways. This includes the prospect of criminal prosecution for incitement to violate the constitutional order.
Trump made an emergency appeal, CNN reports. He announced that he would leave the presidency on January 20.
At the same time, according to the politician, the transfer of powers to the newly elected president will be peaceful. Either way, Trump is not happy with the election results. It should be noted that at the moment the politician has no choice but to challenge them legally.
Earlier, the US Congress approved the election of Joseph Biden as President of the country. The Democrat has secured more than 300 electoral votes cast by Congress.
