Americans awoke this morning to the news that President Donald Trump has reportedly promised an “orderly transition” of power following a certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election by Vice President Mike Pence at 3.41am.
Trump is reported to have said “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 20.”
The statement was released by aides on Twitter, following Trump’s account being suspended, with the tech company claiming the President was inciting violence.

Trump was suspended on Twitter, having two tweets completely removed, one of which was a video in which he expressed sympathy for supporters, but urged those at the Capitol to go home.
His last visible tweet was a call for peaceful demonstrations:
