What if Trump refuses to hand over power if Biden wins the presidency?
If his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, wins, rejects one of the scenarios, what would happen if Trump refused to hand over power?
According to the U.S. Constitution, the 20th Amendment provides for the end of the president’s term of office at noon on January 20, and he did not mention in the Constitution how the president should be removed if he loses the election and refuses to hand over power to his opponent, so it is difficult to say if there is any intention to interfere with the FBI or any law enforcement agency to remove Trump from office, according to a report of Al Arabiya.
The Trump campaign has said it is willing to turn to the courts to challenge the outcome of the election, as it has the right to request a recount in most states provided the results are too close, a move that will delay the announcement of the new White House governor until the issue is resolved, which could take up to several months.
According to the US Constitution, if the president is delayed ahead of time or the president-elect fails to obtain his powers, the vice president-elect will be stepped up to serve the president’s powers until the legal issue is resolved.
If Congress is unable to choose the winner by that date, an infiltration of succession is followed by law.
