O’Brien pledged to ensure the transfer of powers if Biden’s victory is recognized

President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Robert O’Brien on Monday said he would ensure a professional handover to Democrat Joe Biden’s team if he is declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election. According to O’Brien, at the moment it seems that this is so.

Trump claims election fraud and insists that he will be declared the winner in a number of states following legal action.

Speaking at an international security forum, O’Brien said that while he hoped for Trump’s re-election, he would work with the new administration, led by Biden and his vice president Kamala Harris.

“If there is a new administration, it deserves some time to implement its policies,” O’Brien said. “If Biden and Harris are declared the winners, and now, obviously, there is such an impression, then the National Security Council will organize a very professional transition process, there is no doubt about it.”

Trump has not yet been able to provide evidence that would refute Biden’s alleged electoral college victory. By December 8, states must approve the results of a popular vote and appoint electors who will formally elect a new president on December 14.

O’Brien said Biden appears poised to form a professional national security team.

“Most importantly, all of this is happening in the United States,” he said. “In our country, the process of transferring power took place peacefully and successfully even in the most difficult periods.”
