It’s over. Finally. Joe Biden really will be the next president of the United States.
Almost three weeks after the 2020 presidential campaign concluded, President Trump on Monday offered the closest thing to a concession speech that he probably will ever give, tweeting he still believed he would win the race against Biden — but that “in the best interest of our Country,” he had instructed the General Services Administration to begin providing transition services to Biden’s team.
That wasn’t even a grudging concession, really. Later in the evening, Trump vowed to “never concede.” Under the circumstances, though, it will have to do.
