DONALD TRUMP has finally committed to an “orderly” transition of power following the chaotic scenes witnessed at the US Capitol.

Returning to Twitter following a suspension, the President’s remarks were widely seen as the first time he has admitted defeat in the US November election. Trump described the mob storming of the US Capitol as a “heinous attack”.

In a new video message, he said: “Now Congress has certified the results a new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th.

“My focus now turns to ensure a smooth, orderly, and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation.”

Trump continued to praise his “wonderful supporters” and promised that “our incredible journey is only just beginning”.

The closest the President has ever come to conceding defeat was in a November tweet in which he claimed that Joe Biden “won because the election was rigged”. He later said he did not mean to suggest that his Democrat rival had actually won the race.

Trump’s unusually balanced words come as top Democrat officials called for him to be removed from the White House, just 13 days before he is due to step down as US President.
