JUST IN: Donald Trump Finally Concedes To Joe Biden, Pledges “Orderly” Transition


The outgoing United State President, Donald Trump, has finally conceded to President-elect Joe Biden after protracted bickering on purported electoral fraud.


Mr. Trump’s concession comes moments after the country’s parliament affirmed Biden’s Electoral College victory, American news network CNN is reporting.


The outgoing U.S. leader, who lost his reelection bid in the hotly contested November poll, described his controversial and largely tumultuous first tenure as the “greatest first term in presidential history,” the media outlet said Thursday morning.



 

Meanwhile, Joe Biden has been confirmed as the next president of the United States after his victory was confirmed by members of both chambers of the United States Congress.


Mr. Biden surpassed the crucial 270 mark in the Electoral College votes on Thursday morning, affirming him as the 46th President of the United States.


Prior to the confirmation, congressional members were chased out of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., by rioters suspected to be loyalists of President Donald Trump, who has refused to acknowledge the outcome of the election claiming it was stolen.


On Thursday morning, the two leading Social Media giants; Twitter and Facebook, have locked the accounts of the outgoing United State President, Donald Trump, for promoting violence in US Capitol, where the Congress was confirming Electoral College votes for the 2020 presidential election.



 

YouTube also banned the President for promoting violence in US Capitol.


Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, January, 6, accused President Donald Trump of promoting violence through his official handles and subsequently barred him from posting, albeit temporarily.


According to a report by Forbes, the two networking sites removed two posts shared by the outgoing president after he voiced his support for protesters who stormed the United States Capitol which is the meeting place of the Congress and the seat of the legislative branch of the US federal government.


In the posts, the controversial 45th US president had urged his supporters to go home but noted that he understood their pain after his “landslide victory” was allegedly stolen from him by President-elect Joe Biden who ran against him on the Democratic Party’s ticket.


Trump’s accounts locked


In a statement, Twitter said the 74-year-old’s account would be locked for 12 hours as it warned against future violations which it said would result in permanent suspension.


“Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our civic Integrity or violent threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account,” it said adding: “Our public interest policy — which has guided our enforcement action in this area for years — ends where we believe the risk of harm is higher and/or more severe.”


Facebook on the other hand prohibited Trump from sharing his thoughts on any topic for 24 hours after his posts were labelled as a threat to the siege on the US Capitol.


Earlier, Trump’s s supporters had stormed the Capitol while Congress was confirming Electoral College votes for the 2020 presidential election.


The protesters wanted to delay the peaceful transfer of power and came after outgoing Vice President Mike Pence, a Republican, rejected his boss’ calls to overturn Biden’s win.
