The United States Congress has affirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory over President Donald Trump.
The counting of Vermont’s three electoral votes put Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris over the 270-threshold needed to win the presidency.
The certification comes after Pro-Trump rioters invaded the US Capitol on Wednesday.
Lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives successfully beat back Republican efforts to deny Biden the electoral votes from swing states Arizona and Pennsylvania.
US President Donald Trump has said there will be an orderly transition on January 20, 2021.
He said this hours after a joint session of the US Congress affirmed the electoral win by President-elect Joe Biden of the Democratic Party.
“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said in a statement.
“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again.”
The session which confirmed Biden’s win had earlier been disrupted by some Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol.
