The US President-elect Donald trump, whose inauguration will take place in Washington on 20 January of the following year, announced his retirement from a multibillion-dollar private business that concentrate on the public service and to avoid possible conflict of interest.

We will note that recently in the USA there was a scandal around the counting of votes in the presidential election. 26 Nov former candidate for US presidents from the green Party, Jill Stein filed a petition with the requirement to reconsider results of elections in Wisconsin. Stein has also promised to submit a petition demanding the revision of votes in the States of Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Trump called the initiative Stine “fraud”, stating that “the loser has already conceded defeat” and the election results should be respected. Campaign headquarters Clinton, meanwhile, has supported the initiative of the green Party.
Later elected President of the United States saidthat the elections in the US, millions of votes were cast illegally. “In addition to winning the vote of the electoral College, I won the popular vote, if we subtract the votes of millions of people who voted illegally,” said trump. However, he did not specify who was given these votes, but probably had in mind his rival candidate from the Democratic party Hillary Clinton.
The election of the American President took place on 8 November. As a result, the Donald trump scored 290 electoral votes with 270 needed, Hillary Clinton – 232. However, as reported by the media, voters cast more votes for Clinton – she voted to 64.2 million and the tramp – 62,2 million voters.
