US

Donald Trump has said there will be an “orderly transition” after the US Congress certified Joe Biden’s win in the presidential election.

“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,” the president said.

“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

The statement was posted on Twitter by White House spokesman Dan Scavino, after the president’s Twitter and Facebook accounts were suspended.

Both companies also removed several posts by the president which cast doubt on the election result and praised his supporters for the march in Washington DC which turned violent.

It ended in the storming of the Capitol building by protesters to disrupt the formal confirmation of Mr Biden’s November win.
