Republican senator urges Trump to accept defeat
“A Republican senator has urged Donald Trump to accept defeat in the US presidential election and begin the transition process, condemning his campaign’s “unprecedented” attempt to overturn Joe Biden’s victory. Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski took to Twitter to say Joe Biden had beaten Mr. Trump fairly and told the president it was time to give up his legal team’s efforts to stay in power.”
“Senator Murkowski is among just a handful of Republican politicians to recognize Mr. Biden’s win. Ms. Murkowski also took a shot at the president’s efforts to influence state Republicans to ignore election results and favor his re-election,” Yahoohews reports.
“A pressure campaign on state legislators to influence the electoral outcome is not only unprecedented but inconsistent with our democratic process. It is time to begin the full and formal transition process”
