Trump refuses to accept defeat, says ‘this election is far from over’

WASHINGTON, NOV 7 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 11/7/2020 1:03:13 PM IST

Minutes after nearly all major networks projected Joe Biden as the next president, President Donald Trump said on Saturday his campaign would begin challenging U.S. election results in court next week, saying “this election is far from over.”

“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated,” Trump said. “The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots,” he said, adding that “Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”

“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,” Trump said in his statement. 

He added, “I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”

Earlier, Trump declared himself as the winner of the November 3 presidential election. “I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!” tweeted Trump.

Twitter immediately flagged Trump’s tweet saying that “official sources may not have called the race when this was tweeted.”

President Donald Trump also repeated his allegations of electoral fraud by claiming without evidence that “bad things happened” inside the counting rooms and tens of thousands of votes were illegally received in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania.
