Trump aide promises 'very professional transition' to Biden
DUBAI, UAE — National Security Advisor Donald Trump promises a very professional transition" to President-elect Joe Biden's administration during an interview broadcast on Monday, even though Trump still wrongly insists he won the elections in November.
Robert O'Brien discussed the change many times during the Global Security Summit organized by Qatar, and mentioned new normalization agreements that Israel was struck by in Bahrain, the Sudanese and the United Arab Emirates, "as a major legacy the President can have during his retirement."
Although he acknowledged that Trump had pending legal cases, O'Brien's remarks showed some of the best announcements ever from a top government official who accepted Biden's triumph in the Nov. 3 referendum.
"We would be in a professional move from the National Security Council if the Biden-Harris ticket is determined to become the champion — clearly things sound like that right now.
There's no debate about it," said O'Brien.
"They are going to take these positions by very professional people."
"We went through the battlefield and even in the most controversial periods had peaceful and successful transitions."
After his defeat, Trump has made false statements regarding the Twitter election.
The vote would not show systematic fraud.
The survey went well as did foreign observers, including representatives from both the Democratic and Republican parties.
"The November 3 election was the most safe in American history," claims the Federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Department.
The fourth national security advisor for Trump, O'Brien, formerly acted as his special representative on the topic of hostages.
When asked about the American journalist Austin Tice who vanished in 2012, and is presumed to be in Damascus, the U.S. using every lever" to send him home.
"We use every tool, whether from allies, or from opponents," O'Brien said.
"We want him back and I want to see him back and I know that the Chairman wants to see him back before he leaves office."
Syria did not accept Tice keeping.
A top Libyan security official said Saturday he had spent two days visiting Syria to meet with Tice officials.
O'Brien also voiced his expectations that in the course of a years-old diplomatic crisis Qatar Airways will be willing to overflow Arab countries' boycotts "in the next 70 days"
However, disputes between Doha and Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have been unrelated to the public.
