Presidential elections in the US, live | Results and reactions after the victory of Joe Biden

Trump says his government will not impose more lockdowns | The president is doubtful about the succession: “Who knows what government there will be” | The Democrat defeats the president in Georgia, while the Republican wins in North Carolina

President Donald Trump hinted this Friday that there will be a new government in the United States and for the first time he was doubtful about the succession after the elections on November 3. “Who knows what government there will be,” he said in an appearance in which he tried to take credit for the launch of Pfizer’s vaccine against covid-19. He made it clear, in line with the policies adopted so far, that his Administration “will not go to a lockdown.” The president spoke in these terms shortly after confirming that his rival, Democrat Joe Biden, had defeated him in Georgia. Instead, Trump got victory in North Carolina. With these results, all the electoral votes are distributed. Biden has 306 and Trump has 232. The news is the color change of five states compared to 2016. Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia are now Democrats. Precisely the State of Georgia has begun this Friday the counting of the votes, as requested by the president’s team, a process that can last five days. The hand counting of the nearly five million ballots and, once all counties certify their results, should conclude on Wednesday, November 18 at midnight. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has assured that these presidential elections were “the safest in the history” of the United States. “There is no evidence that a voting system has erased, lost or changed the ballots, or that it has been pirated in some way, “they noted in the document. Given the prudence of some international leaders due to the allegations of voter fraud made by Trump, China has congratulated Biden and Kamala Harris for their victory.
