In his first indirect admission of defeat in the US presidential elections, the outgoing US President Donald Trump Monday gave the green light for President-elect Joe Biden's team to obtain the necessary federal support to start the process of transferring power.

On Twitter, he promised to continue the "battle," by continuing to file judicial complaints to prove fraud in the elections held Nov. 3. 

Trump wrote, "Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!"

"For the sake of our country, I recommend" the government agency in charge of the transfer of power "to do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same."

The Biden team quickly welcomed this necessary step for a "smooth and peaceful transition of power."

Democrat Biden is preparing to enter the White House Nov. 20 with many employees who have worked in the Obama administration.
