Trump Pledges an Orderly Transition to a Biden Presidency

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-01-07/trump-offers-assurance-of-orderly-transition-to-biden-presidency

President Donald Trump, minutes after Congress certified President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College Victory and hours after Trump supporters broke into the Capitol, pledged “an orderly transition.”

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said in a statement posted on Twitter by his aide Dan Scavino early Thursday morning.

Trump’s statement came as staff resigned and as congressional allies abandoned him in the aftermath of a mob of his supporters laying siege to the Capitol on Wednesday.

That was written by an aide. They’re scared and doing damage control. They don’t speak for The Beast. Assuming he isn’t in a padded cell, he’ll be right back at it today.

in governing by Tweet. How do we really know that statement came from Trump?

Another day 1 move by president Biden should be to bring back the daily press conferences.

sore loser needs to be locked up for all the damage he has done. I don't care if it's a prison or mental hospital, just so he is there for life.

His followers have been shown to be dangerous because the are so are easily swayed to insurrection by him. He must be removed from office and censured. He must not be allowed to communicate with his minions. He is dangerous.
Congress must act and remove him from office immediately.
Congress knows this. They have at their disposal unlimited experts regarding the occupants mental health and his potential impact on national security. We are in danger as long as he is in office.
Congress must act to remove him from office now.

I don't see this statement by Traitor Trump as a concession at all. This seemed to me like another sly dog-whistle to his followers.
