With the Electoral College certified President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, support for President Donald Trump’s attempt to overturn his election loss starts to collapse in the Senate on Monday, with many top Republicans saying the time had come to understand and realise the situation and also recognize the results that have been evident for weeks. 

They also insisted that Trump could still challenge the results in court, the senators said the certification should be considered the effective conclusion of an election that has severely divided the country. Few weeks went off silent Trump and others in their party sought to overturn the results in increasingly extreme ways, some asked their colleagues to move on. “I understand there are people who feel strongly about the outcome of this election, but in the end, at some point, you have to face the music,” Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the Republicans’ No. 2 in the Senate, told reporters in the Capitol. “And I think once the Electoral College settles the issue today, it’s time for everybody to move on.”

A small group of Republican senators congratulated Biden almost immediately in November. “We’ll deal with Vice President Biden as the president-elect,” said Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, chair of the Republican Policy Committee and the congressional panel planning next year’s inauguration, a direct statement of approval.
