The Trump administration has done everything statutorily required under the Presidential Transition Act, the White House said , asserting that a constitutional process is being played out to determine the winner of the November 3 elections.

Former vice president Joe Biden was declared the winner of the US presidential election on November 7 after flipping Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin to the Democrats’ column. Biden had earlier alleged that the Trump administration were delaying the transition process

Biden now has 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232 votes. To win the race to the White House, the successful candidate should have at least 270 electoral votes out of the 538-member Electoral College.

There is a Presidential Transition Act that determines exactly what an administration needs to do in advance of an election. And we have done everything statutorily required, and we will continue to do that, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters at a news conference.

Trump has refused to concede the November 3 election and has filed multiple lawsuits challenging the poll results in several states.
