Following the vote in the Electoral College yesterday, it appears that the Senate Republican leadership has surrendered to the growing belief that Joe Biden will be sworn in as President of the United States of America on January 20th.
Just moments ago, on the floor of the United States Senate, Majority Leader McConnell congratulated Joe Biden and addressed him as President-Elect.
As reported by numerous media outlets:
“‘Today, I want to congratulate President-elect Biden,’ McConnell said Tuesday on the Senate floor, after a speech heralding President Donald Trump’s achievements.
“‘I was proud to join thousands of people in Wyoming in voting for President Trump. I believe he’s the leader our country needs. I also respect the result of the Electoral College vote today,’ said third-ranking Republican Sen. John Barrasso, of Wyoming, in a statement.
“Sen. Roy Blunt, who chairs the committee responsible for planning the inauguration, said that ‘now we have the constitutional threshold, and we’ll deal with Vice President Biden as the president-elect.’
Please watch the video below of McConnell and share your thoughts in the comment section on this page. Are you disappointed that Senate Republicans have surrendered to the belief that Joe Biden will be the next President? Or, do you believe it’s time for them to acknowledge Joe Biden as the President-Elect?
