Outgoing controversial U. S president Donald Trump has finally bowed down to pressure from people of America and accepted to vacate the White House for newly elected president Joe Biden.
A key federal agency says Joe Biden, the ‘apparent winner’ of the 2020 United States election, is clearing the way for the start of the transition.
Biden has since been formally given the go-ahead by a federal agency to begin his transition to the presidency, shortly after the battleground state of Michigan certified him as the winner there.
With the rapid-fire developments on Monday, President Trump’s already languishing efforts to overturn his November 3 defeat appeared to be coming to a close.
The US General Services Administration (GSA), an independent agency, asce...
Outgoing U.S president Donald Trump is literally throw kicks of a dying horse after election officials rejected his claims of fraud in the recently concluded presidential elections, over lack of evidence.
It should be noted that Trump and his Republican party allege that voting fraud and lost ballots led to his loss to Joe Biden in last week’s election.
But election officials have since trashed the allegations, insisting that 'the November 3 election was the most secure in American history'.
There is no evidence of compromised ballots or corrupt voting systems in the United States presidential elections, officials said, as a top Democrat accused the Republicans who refuse to accept President-elect Joe Biden’s win of “poisoning” democracy.

Political analysts in that country have said the Democratic candidate is on the brink of winning the race for the Wh...

At least seven television networks including ABC, CBS and NBC, cut away from Trump's White House address
Trump claimed the election was being 'stolen from him' in an extraordinary address to the country on Thursday, after realising that his rival Joe Biden was claiming the lion’s share of the votes.
He launched 17-minute tirade spelling out his conspiracy theory that 'big tech, big money and big media' were rigging the race to get a Democrat in the White House.
However, TV networks NBC, CBS and ABC switched him off as he ranted, reading from a script which he had written on in sharpie
He presented no evidence of fraud and hinted darkly at the blizzard of litigation his campaign has launched despite courts in Georgia and Michigan turning him down.
America holds its breath in a consequential election, Ethiopia raises fears of a civil war, and Uganda freezes GiveDirectly’s COVID-19 cash transfer program. This week in development:
Poll workers continue to count votes in a U.S. election with big implications for the country’s global development, global health, and humanitarian role. While Democratic nominee Joe Biden appeared to be leading over incumbent President Donald Trump on Thursday, the close results will almost certainly be subjected to further scrutiny, and key races that could affect the balance of power in the U.S. Senate are still to be determined. In the lead-up to Nov. 3, groups that monitor election and political integrity had warned about increased risks of violence or attempts ...

U.S presidential contender Joe Biden has revealed that he is ready to deploy a very experienced legal team to battle with incumbent President Donald Trump, should he refuse to hand over power if he loses the much-contested election.
Biden’s resolution came a few hours after Trump prematurely declared himself the winner and said that the vote counting should stop, sparking off outrage from various Americans.
By the time of filing this story Biden had garnered 238 of the 270 votes needed to win the election, while Trump was trailing with 213.
However, it should be noted that Americans are also electing members to the two chambers of Congress, the main law-making body of the US. Those chambers are t...

October, former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, now being mentioned
as a possible running mate for Joe Biden, was on the popular podcast “Pod Save
America,” when another former Obama administration official, Tommy Vietor,
shared his belief that high-ranking Republican Sen. Lindsey O. Graham of South
Carolina is a long-standing specimen of excrement.
“He’s been a
piece of s---,” Rice concurred. “I said it. I said it, finally, dammit. He’s a
piece of s---.” She smiled at the camera.
gentlemen, the vice president of the United States?
If Biden is
actually considering Rice for the job — I suspect the boomlet is more about
building her profile for another future post — it would be a costly mistake.
Don’t get me
wrong. Biden would b...
