As the vote tallying continues with Joe Biden taking the lead in major states of America, Donald Trump has declared the elections as Electoral fraud, claiming that the opposition is trying to “steal” the election.
In a written statement issued early on Friday afternoon, The President said, “This is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process. We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law to guarantee the American people have confidence in our government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.”
Prior, as Joe Biden secured lead in Pennsylvania and Georgi – to get any opportunity of retaining presidency, Trump should win two states. Trump’s camping said that it was too soon to declare Biden as the winner as further legal challenges are yet to begin.
“The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”, Andrew Bates, Biden’s spokesman, replied.
Considering Trump’s denial to accept the results and concede defeat to Joe Biden, it is most likely that a fierce legal battle is going to take place over several states in the coming days.
It is said that this battle would prove to be rather pointless since the proof of voter fraud is yet to be provided by the incumbent. However, Trumps campaign demanded it would be pursued regardless.
Trumps campaign attorney Matt Morgan said, “This election is not over. The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final.”
In his statement he accused several states of “irregularities” in their vote-counting processes. “There were many irregularities in Pennsylvania, including having election officials prevent our volunteer legal observers from having meaningful access to vote counting locations.” he said.
Morgan believes that his client will win re-election “but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected.” he said in the statement.
No proof has yet been provided by the Trump’s campaign as of yet.
In the course of recent months, it has become quite clear that Trump wouldn’t agree to peaceful transition of power, when asked, and has asserted he will only possibly lose in the case of Electoral fraud.
The country’s highest-ranking uniformed officer, Gen. Mark Milley, has made it clear that the military would have no role in the matter of transfer of power.
However, back in June, Biden said that if Trump refuses to transfer power, Trump would be removed by the military “I promise you; I’m absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” he said.
