..Insists He’s Fighting On
Agency Report– Outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump finally yielded some ground on Monday as he allowed the General Services Administration to begin the transition process to Democrat Joe Biden era.
More than two weeks after Joe Biden became President-elect, the General Services Administration has now notified his team that the Trump administration is ready to begin the transition process.
GSA Administrator Emily Murphy sent a letter to Biden on Monday saying that Biden would have access to federal resources and services to facilitate a presidential transition, according to a copy obtained by theHill.com.
Trump in two tweets confirmed that he had asked Murphy to begin the transition, though he did not concede his loss to Biden and said he would keep fighting.
Trump also thanked Murphy for being loyal, well he said, to America!
I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good…

His soft-pedalling came on a day that 100 business leaders threatened to withhold donations for the Republican senate races in Georgia, if Trump fails to concede.
Also, Michigan sealed his hope of overturning Biden victory, when the state certified the result.
More Republicans have also mounted pressure on him to give up the fight.
