Trump urged Republicans not to give up early

Acting U.S. President Donald Trump urged Republicans not to give up after Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell conceded Joe Biden had won the election. He announced this on Wednesday, December 16, on Twitter.

Earlier, on December 16, the leader of the Republican Party in the U.S. Senate, Mitch McConnell, acknowledged his electoral victory during a conversation with Joe Biden. Kamala Harris endorsed the conversation and called on U.S. politicians to express their willingness to “peacefully transfer power, to comply with and respect the norms of the country’s Constitution, as well as the electoral system” of the United States.
