President-Elect Joe Biden met with his national security advisers on Tuesday. Analysts working for government intelligence agencies were unable to attend the meeting, as incumbent President Donald Trump continues to block the process of transferring power to the election winner.
According to representatives of the President-elect’s team responsible for the transition of power, Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris discussed global issues in the fields of diplomacy, intelligence, and defense with experts, according to representatives of the President-elect’s team.
In recent days, many Republican lawmakers have said that government intelligence officials should advise Biden before his inauguration, which will take place on January 20. However, Trump still does not admit defeat. The President has filed numerous lawsuits, hoping to stay in power for another four years.
According to some Republicans, giving Biden the daily intelligence summary that the President receives daily from analysts who assess threats to US national security around the world is essential for a successful transition of power. According to lawmakers, this will not prevent Donald Trump from fighting in the courts to review the votes’ results in connection with violations made during the counting of votes.
However, Donald Trump still refuses to admit defeat, claiming victory in the election. According to numerous estimates of the vote count in individual States, Biden received more than 270 votes in the Electoral College, which guarantees him election to the presidency.
