Skip to comments.Trump finally admits defeat: 'A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20'

Two months after the 2020 presidential election, less than a day after Congress certified the Electoral College results, and facing increasing pressure to resign, Donald Trump finally admitted on Thursday that he had lost and would not serve a second term.
“Now Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th,” Trump said in a two-minute video posted to his Twitter feed. “My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power.”
He did not mention the name of the man who defeated him, President-elect Joe Biden. There has been no indication from the White House that Trump has, or intends to, call Biden to concede. But the president’s remarks were a stark contrast to statements he made on Wednesday, when he encouraged tens of thousands of his followers to head to the U.S. Capitol to disrupt the joint session of Congress in which lawmakers were voting on certifying the Electoral College returns. Trump had sought to block that certification, and a mob of more than 1,000 of his supporters clashed with police, broke windows and stormed into the Capitol, halting the proceedings for hours. Four people died during the melee.
Trump began his latest video by addressing what he called the “heinous attacks” on the Capitol.

Do you think they’ll have arts and crafts at camp? or just endless backbreaking forced labor?
No respect for the criminals who stole the election. They all are traitors who will be summarily executed by the commies who used them.
Death to all who colluded.

I heard the sawdust bread there is to die for.
He basically tweeted that yesterday before they locked him out.
But MAGA is not over. Buckle your seatbelts.
The Kraken is coming tomorrow. That’s what I keep hearing every day anyways.
Be funny if what he meant by “new administration” was actually an administration of him + someone other than Pence.
