An assessment of the results in all US states was announced last night, bringing the total number of votes cast by Joe Biden in Georgia to 306, but Donald Trump has once again objected and encouraged people to protest.

The state of Georgia, a major Republican stronghold, often has a Republican nominee in the lead, but this time the Democratic nominee, Biden, is in the lead.

Biden is the first Democratic candidate to triumph in Georgia in 28 years.

Democratic presidential candidates have been closing the gap on their Republican rivals in recent years in Georgia, none had reportedly repeated Bill Clinton’s in 1992.

At the same time, Donald Trump again does not accept these results and has encouraged people in many states to protest.

Moreover, the Washington Post reports, former Defense Secretary Mark esper sent a classified memo to the White House about Afghanistan before Trump fired him.

According to two senior U.S officials, after consulting With Senior military officers, Esper sent a classified memo to the white house expressing his concerns about additional cuts.

Esper wrote citing the ongoing violence, possible dangers to the remaining troops, if a rapid pullout is taken action on, Washington Post reported.

There are fears of potential damage to alliances and apprehensions that could appear about undercutting the U.S-Taliban negotiations.

Colin Jackson, a former senior Pentagon official overseeing Afghanistan early in the Trump administration, advocated against a withdrawal now.

“We don’t have a single example where pulling the plug has gone well — Vietnam, Iraq,” he said. “Not one” Washington post quoted.

“We can get down to maybe 4,500,” the official said. “But we cannot be at zero.”

Another former senior White House official told Washington Post, that it is not possible for the United States to remove all troops “without crushing the coalition there.”

“We can get down to maybe 4,500, but we cannot be at zero”. The unknown official said.
