PRESIDENT-Elect Joe Biden has blasted Donald Trump as an “embarrassment” for his “baseless” election fraud claims.
Biden said the transition of powers between his and the Trump regime will go ahead with or without the President’s cooperation, as The Donald continues to falsely claim he was the real winner of last week’s election.
It comes as House Democrats won their 218th seat on Tuesday, putting them firmly in the majority for the next Congress, although Republicans could hold on to the Senate if they win run-off votes in Georgia in January.
The news comes as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he is confident in a second Trump administration as the President refuses to concede the election.
When asked whether he’d help Joe Biden’s presidential transition team, Pompeo appeared to double-down on Donald Trump‘s refusal to concede the election.
“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” he told reporters at a press briefing on Tuesday with a smile.
