US election: what happens now Donald Trump has conceded defeat?

Donald Trump has come as close as he may get to formally conceding defeat in the US election, telling the federal agency tasked with overseeing the transition of power to begin preparing Joe Biden for office.

Despite vowing to continue contesting the election, Trump said yesterday that the General Services Administration (GSA) should “do what needs to be done” to aid the president-elect. The GSA subsequently declared Biden the “apparent winner” of the contest for the White House.

“In the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily [Murphy, the GSA Administrator] and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same,” Trump tweeted.
