Asked by Fox News correspondent if the administration was working with Biden’s team on a presidential transition, Secretary of State Pompeo responded with a smile, “There will be a smooth transmission to a second Trump administration.”
Then he added, “We’re ready. The world is watching what’s taking place. We’re going to count all the votes. There is a process.”
“I’m very confident that we will count — and we must count — every legal vote. We must make sure that any vote that wasn’t lawful ought not to be counted,” Pompeo said during the Tuesday press conference.
