Robert O’Brien, Trump’s national security adviser, acknowledged Monday that it “obviously” looks as though Biden has won the election, and he promised “a very professional transition” on the National Security Council.
“If there is a new administration, they deserve some time to come in and implement their policies,” O’Brien said. “We may have policy disagreements, but, look, if the Biden-Harris ticket is determined to be the winner — obviously, things look that way now — we’ll have a very professional transition from the National Security Council. There’s no question about it.”
During his remarks, O’Brien also called recent peace deals that Israel struck with Bahrain, Sudan and the United Arab Emirates “a great legacy for [Trump] to have as he leaves office.”
O’Brien’s comments came on a morning when Trump continued to insist on Twitter that he had won the election.
