Joe Biden campaigned in the important Senate election for Democrats in Georgia on Tuesday, one day addressing the American people for the first time since being elected its official president.
In Washington, Mitch McConnell finally acknowledged Biden’s victory over Donald Trump, who continues to make unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud and refuses to admit them.
“Today I would like to congratulate Joe Biden on his election as President,” Republican Majority Leader Senate said on the floor, adding that California Senator Kamala Harris said: “All Americans can be proud of being elected a woman vice president of our nation. For the first time.”
However, the White House still refuses to acknowledge Trump’s defeat. When asked about McConnell’s offer after Monday’s election college activities, Press Secretary Kaylee McNani said: “The president is still involved in election-related cases. Yesterday’s referendum is a step in the constitutional process. ”
McCann said he had no reaction to McConnell’s decision to greet Pita. He said: “The president, again, is continuing to prosecute. I will refer you for further campaigning.”
When asked by the Guardian if Trump wants to run for re-election in 2024, the press secretary noted that legal action is ongoing. He denied that such attempts were damaging US democracy, insisting that Russia’s investigation into Trump had done more harm than good.
Now that the Electoral College has voted, the hope of overturning Trump’s decision is somehow fading after more than 50 defeats in the courts. Biden will open in Washington on Jan. 20.
Biden was one of the first Democrats to win Georgia since 1992 in Atlanta Drive-in rally The Senate will determine control in favor of John Osoff and Rafael Warnock, who will face Republican senators David Bertue and Kelly Lofler in the Jan. 5 race, as well as the legislative power of the Pitton administration.
“I’m starting to feel like I ‘ve beaten Georgia three times,” Biden said, referring to several details that confirmed his victory after the Trump campaign challenged the results. Biden said the Georgians refused to be “bullying” or “quiet.”
Biden’s first trip to Atlanta was on a campaign trail after the November 3 election. The drive-in rally featured Democrats’ vote-increase in the multi-million-dollar contest that began with the early voting, featuring Senate candidates and former Georgia Cubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams and Atlanta Mayor Geisha Lance Bottoms.
Biden said: “John Osoff and Rafael Warnock are running to represent Georgia. Georgia! They will really fight for you, represent you, and stand up for you. ”
Prior to Biden’s appearance, it was revealed that he had tapped Pete Pattik, a candidate for the 2020 Democratic nomination, to lead the transport sector, the Guardian confirmed.
The news was first reported by Reuters. Neither Biden Change Officer nor the Pattigeek representative have publicly confirmed the report.
To mark the election college verdict, Biden addressed the nation in a prime-time speech on Monday night, almost six weeks after Election Day. Speaking from Wilmington, Delaware, Biden said, “The rule of law, our constitution and the will of the people prevailed. Our democracy – pushed, tested, threatened – has proven to be flexible, real and strong. ”
The 46th president said it was “time to turn the page” in an election, declaring it “one of the most spectacular demonstrations of civic duty we have ever seen in our country.” The final election college results from 306 to 232, he noted, are similar to the way Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“At the time, President Trump called the Electoral College a landslide,” Biden said.
Biden, who was interrupted several times by coughing and clearing his throat in a 13-minute speech, attacked Trump’s two attempts to thwart the decision in the form of “legitimate challenges” and “unsympathetic” threats and abuse of election workers and officials.
“They were interrogated by more than 80 judges across the country,” he said. “In each case, they have seized it, despite obstacles we can scarcely imagine.”
Citing the Texas case rejected by the US Supreme Court, he said: “This is a very serious situation that we have never seen before. A state that refuses to respect the will of the people, refuses to respect the rule of law and refuses to respect our Constitution.”
But Biden sought to unite a bitterly divided nation, saying, “It is time to turn the page – as we have done throughout our history – to unite and heal.”
Trump is showing little sign of uniting his party. On Tuesday he retweeted a message from a conservative lawyer who said the governor and secretary of Georgia should be sent to jail.
In this post Brian Kemp and Brad Rafensberger wore masks with the Chinese flag. Officials opposed Trump’s verbal attacks, demanding they reject the outcome of their state election, and several details confirmed Biden’s victory.
Biden also addressed the US death toll from the corona virus outbreak, which has surpassed 300,000.
“My heart goes out to each and every one of you in this dark winter of epidemic,” he said, referring to St. Francis as “going to spend the holidays and the New Year with black holes in your hearts”: “Where there is disagreement, union; doubt, hope; darkness, light. Where we are. Who we are as a nation. This is the America we want. That is the America we are going to be. ”
On Tuesday, McConnell echoed the plea: “Our nation needs to add another two – party chapter to this record.” The Senate majority leader seemed to point to the need for an agreement on the relief of the corona virus, which had left Capitol Hill for months.
Biden told reporters that he had spoken to McCann, a badly ruthless discriminatory operator. “Although we disagree on many things, there are things we can work on together,” Biden said. “It simply came to our notice then [rather] Than later. ”
Elsewhere, Dr. Anthony Fossie, America’s top epidemiologist, told Biden and Harris to “get vaccinated as soon as we can.”
“For safety reasons, I feel we should be vaccinated as much as possible,” Fucci said. ABC. “You want him to be fully protected when he comes to the presidency in January.”
