Finally, a reluctant Donald Trump has cleared the way for Joe Biden’s transition.

Trump put out a Tweet after the government agency tasked to ease the way for Biden’s transition to the White House announced that it was finally lifting any roadblocks on facilitating the transition.
Hinting however that he was still refusing to concede, Trump said in the same tweet, “Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!”

“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,” Biden’s transition director Yohannes Abraham said in a statement.
Trump’s tweet came after Michigan became the latest state to certify its results and more powerful Trump supporters came out and insisted that the impasse related to the transition end.
