The dramatic US election saw a turning point on Saturday when Democratic contender Joe Biden was projected by all major US media outlets to be the next president of the United States. The results, however, were rejected by Donald Trump, who intends to launch a legal action with the Supreme Court, arguing the race is not over yet.
Donald Trump is planning to hold rallies in several key states in a push to continue the struggle to have votes recounted, refusing to concede defeat in the election.
The incumbent president intends to establish special vote recount teams in Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania, the Axios news portal reported, citing presidential advisers.
Meanwhile, the General Services Administration has called on its Trump-appointed chief, Emily Murphy, to formally launch the procedure for a transfer of power from Trump to Joe Biden, according to a letter, which was obtained by the Politico news portal.
President Trump has not yet conceded defeat in the election despite prominent US media outlets calling Biden’s victory. Biden, in turn, has already delivered a victory address to the nation alongside his running mate Kamala Harris and is already forging plans for his presidency, which, according to reports, will include overturning some of Trump’s orders made during his four-year term.
