President Trump can not be bothered with how the election has played out and is steadfast in believing that major election fraud caused Joe Biden to be declared president-elect. He has even called in his buddy Attorney General Bill Barr to assist in launching an investigation into the matter.
More of his allies have begun to come forward to stand up for the president including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is insisting that the U.S. election has not been decided. He also predicted that President Trump will prevail, backing Trump’s reluctance to begin the transition to President-elect Joe Biden’s administration.
“There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo said during a briefing Tuesday. “All right? We’re ready.”
The secretary was replying to a Fox News reporter’s question about whether the State Department is preparing to work with the Biden transition team – and whether a delay could raise a potential national security risk or hinder a smooth transfer of power. Pompeo did not respond directly to that question, implying instead that a transition won’t be needed.
This drew harsh criticism from Democrats, including Senator Chuck Schumer who said Pompeo needed to “stop playing games,” and President-elect Joe Biden who said what Trump was doing was an “embarrassment.”
