Peaceful transfer of power has been a staple of US democracy since the 19th century, and no presidential candidate has ever refused to admit defeat after all votes were counted and legal challenges resolved.
Mr Biden’s first duties as President
New President Joe Biden has pledged to bring the White House back to normal, but his job will be to unite a deeply polarized America.
On Sunday, Mr Trump’s supporters were encouraged by the president’s rejection of the election defeat. Thousands protested across the country from Atlanta to Phoenix.
In the meantime, Mr. Trump’s critics have booed, screamed profanity and said, “Losers! Loser! ”And gave his finger to his motorcade as the President returned to the White House.
On his first appearance since winning the election, President-elect Joe Biden pledged to work hard and restore unity to all Americans.
“I was looking for this office to restore the soul of America. To rebuild the back room of this nation, the middle class, and to respect America again around the world, ”Biden said on Sunday.
“It is time to get rid of the harsh rhetoric, cut the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again, and to make progress we must stop treating our opponents as our enemies.”
President-elect Joe Biden and his wife Jill; and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff.
In an earlier speech on Saturday he called for an end to the “partisan war” and called for national unity.
“The purpose of our politics is not to wage an all-out and relentless war. It’s about solving problems, ”said Biden.
“We may be opponents, but we are not enemies. We are Americans. ”
He repeated this message the previous Sunday after US networks declared victory to the Democrats.
“It is time for America to unite. And to heal, ”he said.
In his early days as President, Mr Biden is expected to reverse Mr Trump’s decision to withdraw from the World Health Organization and issue an executive order requiring the wearing of masks on federal properties.
Before he won the election, he also announced that he would rejoin the Paris Agreement and reassure US allies that “we are back and you can count on us again”.
Should Republicans retain control of the U.S. Senate, they could potentially block, slow, or enforce changes to large parts of Mr Biden’s legislative agenda, including expanding health care and tackling climate change.
That prospect may depend on the outcome of four indecisive Senate races, including two in Georgia, which won’t be cleared until January.
Recounts and litigation
Meanwhile, Mr Trump has filed lawsuits in five battlefield states after making unsubstantiated allegations of election fraud in several counties.
The Republican Party is trying to raise $ 60 million to fund various legal challenges. So there will likely be many more in the coming days.
A Michigan legal challenge was denied, but additional legal challenges may continue. In the meantime, recounts could be conducted in states like Wisconsin, where polling numbers were tight.
US President Donald Trump was defeated after one term.
The Supreme Court declined to rule on Mr Trump’s legal challenge in Pennsylvania on election day, but there could also be a new challenge in Nevada after his team claimed there were voting irregularities.
The deadline for resolving electoral disputes at the state level is December 8th. All state recounts and legal disputes over the results of the presidential election must be completed by that date.
On December 14th, the electoral college elects the president. Confirmation of election results in each state must be received by the President of the Senate and the archivist by December 23rd.
Last opportunity to appeal
Mr. Biden is tasked with appointing members of his administration, and a new Congress will be sworn in on January 3, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Congressional Census announced by the Vice President is the last opportunity for a candidate to contest the results.
If a candidate appeals the Earl, a joint meeting would discuss the appeal before the Senate and House of Representatives vote on whether to appeal.
The final results and votes of the electoral college will be announced on January 6, prior to the day of inauguration. Mr. Biden is expected to take office on January 20th.
What if Mr Trump refuses to evacuate the White House?
After the final result on Sunday, Mr. Trump denied it again, tweeting: “The observers were not allowed into the counting rooms. I won the election. ”
In the past, he has refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power and has signaled that he will fight the election results to the bitter end.
Mr Trump now has about two and a half months in office.
