    The White House is preparing for President Donald Trump’s second term which is slated to begin in January 2021, and Your Content has learned members from several agencies have declared Biden’s win to be fake news.

    Those are the accusations leveled by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as he battled reporters over President Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the presidential election, predicting “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration” despite the fact that Joe Biden is the projected winner of the race.

    The comment from Pompeo, a top ally of the president, came during a combative news conference at the State Department on Tuesday when the Cabinet member was asked whether the agency is prepared to engage with President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team.

    “There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration,” Pompeo replied with a smile.

    “We’re ready,” Pompeo continued. “The world is watching what’s taking place. We’re gonna count all the votes. When the process is complete, there’ll be electors selected. There’s a process. The Constitution lays it out pretty clearly. The world should have every confidence that the transition necessary to make sure that the State Department is functional today … and successful with a president who’s in office on Jan. 20, a minute after noon, will also be successful.”

    It was quickly followed by comment by President-elect Joe Biden, who said President Donald Trump’s failure to recognize his victory is an “embarrassment.”
