The U.S. Special Envoy to the Northern Ireland peace process, Mick Mulvaney, has stated that President Trump will “absolutely” help facilitate a peaceful transition of power if Joe Biden is ultimately declared the winner of the 2020 election.

At time of writing, that outcome seems only a matter of time.

“I recommend that he accept a peaceful transition of power, which I think he would do absolutely anyway,” Mulvaney said in an interview on CNBC and as reported by the website Politico.

“Look, the president is a fighter, there’s no question about it, and you’ll see him fighting down to the very last. But “at the end of that process, [if] Joe Biden’s the president, you can absolutely guarantee a peaceful transition of power,” Mulvaney said.

Mulvaney actually first delivered his views on the post-election situation while participating in a webinar hosted by the Dublin-based think tank, the Institute for International and European Affairs.
