Trump says his focus is smooth transition of power

United States President Donald Trump in a video message acknowledged that a new administration will be sworn into office on January 20, and that his primary focus has shifted to ensuring a "smooth, orderly and seamless" transition of power.

"My campaign vigorously pursued every legal effort to contest the election results," Trump admitted. He explained that defending the American democracy by protecting the integrity of the vote goal had always been his goal, but that he now wants to make sure President-elect Joe Biden's transition process goes smoothly.

The video address was released on Twitter after the president's account on the platform was unlocked, after being temporarily suspended by the company for "repeated and severe" violations of its Civic Integrity policy.
