US election: There’ll be smooth transition to Trump’s second term – Mike Pompeo declares

US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, on Tuesday declared that preparations are being made for a smooth transition into President Donald Trump’s second term.

Pompeo promised a “smooth transition” but refused to recognize Joe Biden’s victory, insisting that Trump will remain in power.
“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo earlier told a State Department news conference.

Joe Biden defeated incumbent President Donald Trump in the tightly contested presidential election and was declared winner by the media.

He recorded over 270 electoral college votes and also had a higher number of national votes.

Although the Democratic Party candidate has since assumed his role as the President-elect, preparing to takeover White House, the incumbent, President Trump has refused to concede defeat.

Trump has gone to court challenging Biden’s victory in the election he (Trump) alleged was marred by massive corruption and fraud.

Just yesterday, Trump expressed hope of being declared winner of the November 3 presidential election, saying results that would be announced next week would put him ahead of Biden.

Asked if the US can still be bold to call for free elections around the world, Pompeo said the question was “ridiculous,” adding that “This department cares deeply to make sure that elections around the world are safe and secure and free and fair.”
