Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, the most senior Republican in the US Congress, has congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on his election victory, even as President Donald Trump and his 75 million supporters continued to question the validity of the results.
“Many of us hoped that the presidential election would yield a different result, but our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January 20,” McConnell said.
“The Electoral College has spoken. So today, I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden.” McConnell said that Biden was “no stranger to the Senate”, having served there for 36 years, and that he has “devoted himself to public service for many years”.
McConnell also congratulated Kamala Harris as vice-president-elect, saying: “Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female Vice-President-elect for the very first time.”
On a private call with Senate Republicans, McConnell pleaded with other republicans not to join members of the House in objecting to the election results on January 6, when Congress meets to ratify the electoral college’s decision.
But many Republicans in Congress continue to reject the election outcome. Some GOP lawmakers have vowed to carry the fight to January 6.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said now that Senator McConnell has spoken, “enough is enough”.
Mr. Trump should “end his term with a modicum of grace and dignity,” Senator Schumer said.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has described Monday’s electoral college vote confirming Joe Biden as the nation’s next president as just “one step in the constitutional process.” The assessment is the latest example of White House officials declining to accept Biden’s victory.
On Tuesday afternoon, Attorney Linwood tweeted criticism of Mitch McConnell for not being a patriot.
“Mitch McConnell@senatemajldr is NOT a Patriot. Ask his wife. She knows. McConnell just wants power, influence, & money. He is willing to sell America to get what he wants. McConnell is a traitor to American Patriots. His day of judgment is coming.” Linwood said.
Last Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate Chao, the wife of Mitch McConnell, to be a member of the Board of Trustees for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Chao served as labor secretary from 2001-2009 under former President George W. Bush. Her family has close business connections with the Chinese Communist Party.
State Secretary Mike Pompeo said in his department tweets, “The Chinese Communist Party poses a real threat. We want China to engage on the world stage the way we ask every other nation to.”
“Americans must know how the CCP is poisoning the well of our higher education for its own ends, and how those actions degrade our freedoms and our national security,” Pompeo said.
“The Chinese Communist Party wants what we have, and it’ll do whatever it takes to get it, from stealing our stuff to pressuring critics of the CCP to keep quiet,” he tweeted.
Evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham said Monday that he is grateful for the last four years, and all that President Donald Trump has done for Americans who stand for life and freedom.
President Trump continued to define this election as the “most corruption election in U.S. history!” tweeting “We have just begun to fight!”
On Monday, as another important step to dry up the swamp in the White House, President Trump announced that he has fired his Attorney General Bill Bar.
Trump tweeted, “Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House. Our relationship has been a very good one, he has done an outstanding job! As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family. Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outstanding person, will become Acting Attorney General. Highly respected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General.”
Miles Guo said in his latest broadcast, “The CCP not only controls your politics, legislature, judicial, and executive systems, and tech giants, more importantly, the CCP’s infiltration and influence is everywhere.”
Miles told that President Trump has 3 powerful plans: the new AG and Special Counsel will investigate Biden’s family; there will be military action, and certain organizations may provide more irrefutable evidence to the Trump administration.
Miles is sure that Joe Biden must be investigated for his family’s corruption and President Trump will still be the next president.
