Donald Trump’s announcement was immediately denounced by the Democratic opposition, which calls for an accelerated process of transition to the presidency of Joe Biden.
“It is pathetic, but sadly predictable, that the maintenance and protection of our democratic processes is a cause for dismissal,” denounced the Democratic leader of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff.
Former presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren, for her part, described the dismissal as “abuse of power” by a “weak and desperate” president.
While a handful of elected Republican Congressmen quickly recognized the Democrat’s victory, many others have remained silent or publicly supported Donald Trump’s accusations of fraud.

And the supporters of the president, a tide of red caps “Make America Great Again”, with whom Donald Trump did not stop surrounding himself in the last hours of his campaign, continue to be bombarded with requests for financial participation for “Defend the election”.
