USA: Republicans urge Donald Trump to attend the handover

It has now been more than three weeks since Joe Biden was declared the winner of the US presidential election. Because Donald still doubts the legitimacy of the election, there are now increasing voices in the Republican camp who are concerned about their external image.

Republican Senator Roy Blunt told CNN that he hoped Trump would be there when Biden was inaugurated. Trump could retain more influence if he left the White House with dignity, said Blunt. The Senator for the state of Missouri – like other Republicans – apparently also worries about the reputation of his party: Continuing to cling to the conspiracy theories in the course of the presidential election could cause serious damage to the Republicans, so the assumption.

Blunt is tasked with overseeing the inauguration. Like Trump, the Senator refrained from designating Biden as President-elect. Instead, he said it was likely that the Democrat would become president on January 20th. He hopes Trump will accept this, said Blunt.

Blunt told CNN that he had encouraged Trump staff to focus on transitioning to the Biden administration and the Georgia Senate election. On January 5, Georgia will hold a runoff election for two Senate seats. The two remaining seats decide on a majority in the Congress Chamber. The Republicans currently lead with two votes, but in the event of a tie, the vote of future Vice President Kamala Harris – a Democrat – would count.

In an interview with Fox television on Sunday, Trump repeated his unproven election fraud allegations. Because of the increase in postal votes, there was a “massive fraud”, claimed Trump. The incumbent president did not provide any evidence. US authorities and state election officers have rated the vote as safe and successful. There are no known cases of major fraud.

However, Trump apparently no longer believes in a victory before the Supreme Court. “The problem is, it’s hard to get to the Supreme Court,” he said.
