US President Donald Trump all but conceded defeat to President-elect Joe Biden on Monday in a tweet where he said he had asked officials to help with the transition to a new president.

Although he said his case “STRONGLY” continues, in an apparent reference to his lawsuits appealing the election outcome in favor of Biden, Trump said he informed the General Services Administration to “do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols.”

GSA head Emily Murphy released a letter giving Biden permission to begin the transition, CNN reported Monday night.

“I take this role seriously and, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, am transmitting this letter today to make those resources and services available to you,” Murphy wrote in a letter to Biden.

“I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA,” Trump tweeted.

The president’s campaign has filed several lawsuits in key battleground states where he has claimed voter fraud.

Local courts have thrown out many cases, but Trump called on his team to continue fighting, “and I believe we will prevail.”

Nevertheless, he revealed that he had instructed Murphy and his own team to help begin the transition process to a new administration.
