The outgoing President of United States of America (USA) Donald Trump has told Joe Biden not to see himself as the President-Elect of the country, declaring that the election was “far from over”
Penpushing reports that, the defeated Trump in a defiant statement shortly after Biden was announced the winner having secured the required number of electoral college votes to win the presidential race, refused to concede to defeat.
The embattled outgoing President criticised Biden for “rushing to falsely pose as the winner”, adding, “Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.
“Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media. Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American people are entitled to an honest election, that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots,” he said.
Penpushing further reports that, the controversial out-going President reiterated his allegation that his team was prevented from vote counting centres in key battleground states, and singled out Pennsylvania, whose 20 electoral college votes put Biden over the 270 required to clinch the seat.
“Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count that they deserve and that Democracy demands,” he said.
