Donald Trump on Wednesday falsely claim that he had won the US election with millions of votes still uncounted, he claimed after his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, said he was confident to win a contest. Biden added the content will not be resolved until a handful of states complete vote-counting over the next hours or days.
“Frankly, we did win this election,” Trump said after claiming he was winning several battleground states where votes were still being tallied.
Trump also tweet claiming a victory.
“This is a fraud on the American public,” Trump said without providing any evidence to support the claim. Election laws in all US states require all votes to be counted. More votes still stood to be counted this year than in the past. People voted early by mail and in-person in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
Who is winning and where?
Trump won the battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio, and Texas, dashing Biden’s hopes for a decisive early victory. Biden said he was on track to win the White House by taking three key Rust Belt states, on the other hand, Trump falsely claims his win over Biden.
Biden, 77, was eyeing the so-called “blue wall” states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Those states sent Trump, 74, to the White House in 2016. Biden is hoping for possible breakthroughs once those states finish counting votes in hours or days to come.
“We feel good about where we are,” Biden said in his home state of Delaware. He was shouting over a din of supporters in cars honking their horns in approval. “We believe we’re on track to win this election.”
Trump has repeatedly and without evidence suggested that an increase in mail-in voting will lead to an increase in fraud, although election experts say that fraud is rare and mail-in ballots are a long-standing feature of American elections.
Let’s wait and see that who becomes the president of the US! We wish both the candidates best of luck.
