The results of the presidential election have been over two weeks. But, Donald Trump is not ready to give up. Joe Biden has received 306 electoral votes. When Trump received the same number of votes in 2016, he called it an overwhelming majority. Now they are not only rejecting the results but are also jeopardizing American security interests. Not willing to transfer power. Intelligence briefing is not being given to Biden and Kamala Harris. Overall, the atmosphere that Trump is building with his stubbornness is not a good sign for America.
Have broken tradition
CNN has released a report on the matter. According to the report, the transfer of power in the US begins immediately after the election results. Biden has already formed a team. But, forced by Trump’s order, officers are not able to send information to them. The President is the Commander in Chief of the military. He begins to be given in-depth information about extremely sensitive cases about two months before he sits in the Oval Office of the White House. In such a situation, the absence of intelligence briefing till now is like messing with America’s security interests.
Committee on Intelligence Briefing
Intelligence agencies usually provide information to a committee of the Senate. However, the highly confidential and highly sensitive intelligence briefing reaches only the president and a few special people. So far, Trump has not ordered the Director of National Intelligence to inform Biden about intelligence matters. The danger with this is that when Biden becomes president he may not be able to take immediate decisions. David, who took command of the CIA during the era of Bill Clinton and George Bush, says – this is a dangerous situation. The country may have to bear the brunt of this.
