170 business leaders call on Trump to accept election result


New York

More than 170 prominent US business leaders have urged Donald Trump to finally accept the result of the presidential election.
The outgoing president has refused to concede the election to Joe Biden and Congress is set to certify the electoral college results on Wednesday.
But supporters of Mr Trump in the House and Senate have said they will refuse to certify Mr Biden’s win and the president is still trying to reverse his defeat.
Mr Biden’s victory has been ratified in courtrooms and states across the country and the president’s false claims of voter fraud have repeatedly been debunked.
Now the Partnership for New York City, a business advocacy group, published a letter urging Congress to quickly certify Mr Biden’s victory.
Signatories to the public letter include Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO David Solomon, Microsoft president Brad Smith, BlackRock’s Laurence Fink, and Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.
“This presidential election has been decided and it is time for the country to move forward,” said the letter.—AFP
