- Donald Trump and White House officials are carrying on with business as usual as Trump prepares for a second term
- Despite the fact that he appears to have lost the election as Joe Biden has been predicted to be officially elected
- Trump has alleged that massive irregularities have occurred including voter fraud, none of which has been substantiated with evidence
Despite the results of the election, US President Donald Trump looks like he is getting ready to serve a second term.
So far Trump has refused to concede defeat in the elections and is doubling down on claims of election irregularities and fraud.
"We are moving forward here at the White House under the assumption that there will be a second Trump term," Peter Navarro told Fox Business Network.
“Until we do that, our assumption is a second Trump term,” Navarro said. “Any speculation about what Joe Biden might do, I think, is moot at this point,” according to Politico.
News24 reported that there has been no hard evidence to corroborate Trump's claims and Joe Biden is moving ahead, preparing to take over from Trump.
There are concerns about what will happen during the transition period and what Trump will be prepared to do.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church has sent his congratulatory message to Joe Biden, the projected winner of the United States (US) presidential election.
In a message, Francis gave his blessing to Biden and wished him well as he takes the mantle of leadership of the country over the next four years, DailyMail reports.
Reacting to the famous cleric's remarks, Biden said:
"The president-elect thanked His Holiness for extending blessings and congratulations and noted his appreciation for His Holiness' leadership in promoting peace, reconciliation, and the common bonds of humanity around the world."
When Biden is sworn-in by January 2021, he will be the second American Catholic president to rule the nation, with the first being the late John F. Kennedy.
