The United States President, Donald Trump, has rejected results of 2020 presidential election that showed Democratic Party candidate, Joe Biden, polling more electoral college votes than him and declared that his legal counsel would be filing different suits following infractions discovered during voting and collation of results.
Trump said that the result does not reflect will of the people and that Federal Electoral Commission (FEC), the country’s electoral body, prevented his legal team from having access to the counting exercise.
The president, who was said to be golfing when news filtered in that Biden had surpassed 270 electoral college vote threshold required to clinch the White House seat, assured his supporters that he would not rest until the election reflects actual wishes of Americans.
While describing the election as fraudulent, the Republican candidate disclosed that beginning from next Monday, his legal team would start prosecuting cases at different courts to ensure Americans’ mandate does not fall on laps of the wrong candidate.
He said: “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 counting 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.”
