Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell congratulated Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Tuesday morning for yesterday's Electoral College vote results.
McConnell made the the remarks during a speech on the Senate floor where he repeatedly highlighted and praised the numerous achievements of the Trump administration.
"President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence deserve our thanks and our gratitude for their tireless work and their essential roles in all these victories and in many more,"
McConnell said. "Six weeks ago, Americans voted in this year's general election. The legal and constitutional processes have continued to play out since then. Yesterday, electors met in all 50 states. So, as of this morning, our country has officially a president-elect and a vice president-elect."
"Many millions of us had hoped the presidential election would yield a different result but our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on January the 20th,"
McConnell continued. "The Electoral College has spoken. So, today I want to congratulate President-Elect Joe Biden. The president-elect is no stranger to the Senate, he's devoted himself to public service for many years. I also want to congratulate the vice president-elect, our colleague from California, Senator Harris. Beyond our differences, all Americans could take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the very first time. I look forward to finishing out the next 36 days strong with President Trump. Our nation needs us to add another bipartisan chapter to this record of achievement."
