U.S. President Donald Trump is not giving up the presidential race, filing lawsuits in key battleground states to stop the certification of the election results.
The Trump campaign has accused Pennsylvania of voter fraud, claiming that ballots have been improperly counted.
Trump vowed that his campaign would continue to file legal challenges in states where Biden leads by narrow margins.
But so far, lawsuits in Georgia, Michigan and Nevada have been rejected.
The country's top diplomat Mike Pompeo has also waded in on the issue, refusing to acknowledge Joe Biden's victory.
Speaking to reporters at the State Department on Tuesday local time, he said the vote counts will smoothly lead to a second Trump administration.
"There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration. All right? We're ready. The world is watching what's taking place. We're going to count all the votes."
He also said it must be made sure that any votes that weren't lawful are not counted.
Adding that they are in good shape, he said he is very confident the Trump administration will do all the things that are necessary to make sure the U.S. government will continue to perform its national security function.
