What do we have here?
Another ‘No’ to Donald Trump’s attempt stay in office…
The one about putting things off got the first ‘No’…..
Trump’s 0-2 so far….
And Republican lawmakers seem united in this right now…
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that there would be an “orderly” transition of power in 2021, after President Trumprefused to commit to a peaceful hand off of power if he loses in November.
“The winner of the November 3rd election will be inaugurated on January 20th. There will be an orderly transition just as there has been every four years since 1792,” McConnell said in a tweet.

The comment from McConnell, while not directly criticizing Trump, is notable because the tight-lipped GOP leader frequently refuses to weigh in on the president’s remarks, even when they spark backlash from members of his caucus.
Other GOP senators predicted on Thursday that there would be a peaceful transition of power, though many did not directly criticize Trump for his remarks.
Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said during an interview with Fox News that he believed a transition of power next year would be peaceful.
“I can assure it will be peaceful,” he said.
