People have taken to the streets to celebrate various news channels’ announcements that Joe Biden is the new United States President Elect. During a nail-biting few days of ballot-counting the number of votes per candidate in certain key states was extremely close and not without controversy.
Congratulatory messages have been sent from all over, including from South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The race is said, however, to not be over. Reports of election fraud have poured in, with accusations of deceased people having ‘voted’, mail-in ballots being bought and vote-counting pausing unexpectedly during late hours of the night allegedly changing direction the next morning.
Legal advisers and attorneys for the Trump campaign have stated that the election is not over, as according to the law an official winner cannot be announced until every legal vote is accurately counted, each state certifies its results and legal challenges are resolved.
President Trump and his legal team, have made it clear that legal action will be taken. President Trump stated that he will not rest “until the American people have the honest vote count they deserve and that democracy demands.”
President Trump’s Statement
We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe 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. In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. 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. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.
So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.
