In what has surprised many around the world, given his refusal to concede defeat in the just-concluded United States (US) presidential election, President Donald Trump has agreed to leave the White House on one condition.

The US president made the disclosure while answering questions from reporters at the White House on Thursday, November 26, after a Thanksgiving teleconference with members of the military.

President Donald Trump who is speaking to the press for the first time since his election defeat indicated that he may never formally concede defeat to Joe Biden and may even skip the inauguration in January.

Ever since Joe Biden was projected winner of the US presidential election, Donald Trump has made attempt to stop the former vice president's victory.

Asides from refusing to concede, Donald Trump has spread wild theories about stolen ballots and launched legal suits to challenge the results of the election.

Meanwhile, With less than two months to the official handing over of US leadership mantle to Joe Biden, a crisis has hit the camp of the former vice president.

So far, Joe Biden has tapped Barack Obama administration officials for high-profile spots in legislative affairs, the first lady's office,and other departments.

Similarly in his cabinet, Joe Biden has approved the selection of Antony Blinken as his secretary of state.

Blinken served as a deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the Obama administration.

Joe Biden, 78, has also announced former secretary of state, John Kerry, as his climate czar, upsetting those in his camp.

Although there are thousands of vacant spaces to be occupied, a senior Biden official was reported to have been angered by the reality of "Obama men" dominating the top places in the coming presidency.
