Ron Klain, one of Joseph Biden’s top political advisers and the future head of the presidential chancellery, said President-elect Joe Biden’s team wants the General Services Administration to announce confirmation of the Democratic candidate’s victory next week. “Donald Trump’s messages are a new confirmation of the reality that Joe Biden won the election. He won because he got more votes, many more in the national vote and the same number of votes in the Federal College with which Donald Trump proclaimed his victory four years ago, “Ron Klain said on Sunday.
“If the US president is ready to acknowledge the reality, it is a positive fact. But it is not the messages posted on Twitter by Donald Trump that make Joe Biden president. The American people did this. We want the General Services Administration to announce the confirmation of the victory next week, “said Ron Klain, according to NBC News. Donald Trump refuses to acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election. Trump’s team is challenging the results in decisive states. On Sunday, Donald Trump posted new messages on Twitter, claiming that Joe Biden won only because the election was rigged. “Fraudulent election. We will win. He only won in the eyes of the fake news media. I do not recognize any defeat. We have a long way to go. It is a fraudulent election, “he wrote.
Trump claimed the election was rigged by “illegal” ballots, alluding to postal ballots that he unfoundedly criticized as vulnerable to election fraud. He also insisted that Republican election observers were unfairly denied access to watch the polling process at some polling stations. His campaign staff filed lawsuits in several key states, but some were quickly rejected. Concerns have been raised that the dispute could complicate the transfer of power. In the race for the White House, a winning candidate must get at least 270 of the 538 votes of the Electoral College allocated to the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The candidate who wins the popular vote in a state obtains the electoral votes of that state, usually according to the principle “the winner takes everything”.
According to the projections of the main media in the country, Biden, former vice president in the mandate of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, obtained a total of 306 electoral votes, compared to 232 for Trump. But the Republican leader has not yet acknowledged defeat and has set out to spread conspiracy theories about alleged electoral fraud without providing evidence. On Saturday, thousands of his supporters marched in central Washington to protest the alleged election fraud at a rally that led to late-night violence against his detractors.
ETrump’s face goes back to Pennsylvania
Donald Trump’s campaign team dropped a central part of its contest in the Pennsylvania presidential election, where Democrat Joe Biden won decisively, by a margin of about 70,000 votes. Before one of the court appearances regarding this appeal, scheduled for Tuesday, Trump’s team dropped the accusation that 682,479 postal votes were processed illegally without his representatives present. Republican attorneys, however, acknowledged in another lawsuit that they had certified observers who assisted in the processing of voting by mail in Philadelphia. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf said there were observers from all parties throughout the trial and that “any other accusation on this issue is a lie.” Under the new form of appeal, Republicans now only accuse their voters of being “treated unfavorably” compared to Democrats.
Donald Trump and his campaign team are working to delay the certification process as much as possible to block it and prevent the state of Pennsylvania, one of the most important in electoral arithmetic, from sending voters to the Electoral College. Other Trump appeals have already been rejected by Pennsylvania courts. Republicans have been trying since the announcement of the results to persuade the courts to cancel ballots on the basis of procedural technicalities – the lack of additional envelopes or the non-completion of some data on the outer envelope as well. More than 2.6 million votes were cast through the mail-order system in Pennsylvania, but no federal or state election official, institution, or prosecutor reported any problems or fraud.
According to projections announced by several media channels made after the calculation of the votes obtained by the Democratic candidate in several key states, including Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia, Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the United States, after submitting the oath on January 20th.
