The Republican candidate in this year ’s United States Presidential Election , Donald Trump , has released poll results showing he should not concede to his democrat challenger , Joe Biden .

The incumbent president made this known in a tweet today. It read, “ Should President Trump concede to Biden ? Poll Results : No : 190 ,593 ( 98 . 9 % ); Yes: 2 ,181 ( 1. 1 % ) Total Votes: 192 ,774 . For the good of our country , we must prevail !”

Trump , who reportedly lost his re -election bid to 78 -year -old Biden and former vice -president after the latter ’s victory in the electoral college votes , has refused to concede while alleging fraud in the election . Biden has so far described Trump ’s refusal to concede as “ an embarrassment” .

But while Trump continues to contest the outcome of the election in court , the General Services Administration on Monday acknowledged Biden as the apparent winner of the election , following weeks of inaction .

Emily Murphy , who heads the GSA, the government agency meant to ease Biden ’s transition into the White House , wrote to the president - elect . “ Because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, I have determined that you may access the post - election resources and services described in Section 3 of the Act upon request, ” Murphy said in a letter to Biden , citing the Presidential Transition Act of 1963 .

Trump also called on his agencies to cooperate with the GSA chief . “ I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols , and have told my team to do the same , ” he tweeted but noted that court cases against election results continue .

The designation triggers a formal transition process , giving Biden and his team access to current agency officials , briefing books and other government resources, including some $ 6 million in funding .

The announcement is a “ needed step” to “ getting the pandemic under control and our economy back on track ,” Yohannes Abraham , the executive director of the Biden - Harris transition , said in an emailed statement .

“ In the days ahead , transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our national security interests , and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration ’s efforts to hollow out government agencies. ”

The PUNCH had earlier reported that for weeks , the Biden transition team has worked informally to establish a new administration , including assembling a coronavirus task force and consulting with public health officials outside of the federal government , mimicking the approach former Vice President Dick Cheney took during the disputed 2000 election .
