The US President spoke again on Twitter. He assured that he obtained “71,000,000 legal votes” and denounced that “bad things happened” that his “observers could not see.”
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, ignored the electoral victory of Democrat Joe Biden and reinforced his claim of fraud: “WIN THE ELECTIONS”, He sentenced in another provocative message that he spread on Twitter.
“OBSERVERS WERE NOT ALLOWED IN THE COUNTING ROOMS. I WON THE ELECTION, I GOT 71,000,000 LEGAL VOTES. BAD THINGS HAPPENED THAT OUR OBSERVERS COULD NOT SEE. IT NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. THEY REQUESTED THEM! “, He wrote in capital letters, almost shouting in that social network.
Immediately afterwards, the Republican Party leader wrote: “71,000,000 legal votes. The most for a sitting president!”
Trump spread those messages shortly after returning to the White House after playing golf in Virginia, outside Washington.
Earlier, through a statement, he proclaimed that “this election is far from over.” “Starting Monday, our campaign will begin to defend our case in court to ensure that the electoral laws are fully enforced and the appropriate winner is proclaimed,” the president stressed.
Trump thus closed his eyes to the reality that his path to re-election had closed at the moment when the media projected that Biden it would take the 20 delegates from Pennsylvania, a state that it necessarily needed to have any chance of winning.
“Winning is easy. Losing is never easy. For me it is not,” Trump had acknowledged on the day of the election, during a visit to his campaign headquarters.
Most of the president’s advisers began to privately acknowledge at the end of the week that they had lost, but Trump himself remained without any plans to give a concession speech, a tradition in the country.
“Obviously he is not going to concede” the defeat, said his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, in a press conference this Saturday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. And he maintained that “50 and 60 observers trained to testify that they were denied the right to monitor the ballots by mail,” the votes that Trump has criticized so much for their alleged unreliability during the campaign.
Another Trump adviser, Corey Lewandowski, denounced the existence of votes cast on behalf of deceased persons in the state of PennsylvaniaAn accusation similar to the one made by Trump supporters in the state of Michigan, whose authorities said they had eliminated the suspicious ballots after careful scrutiny.
Experts from the Politifact website also attribute this discrepancy to the fact that the affected voter could share a name and surname with the deceased person, as they are a relative.
More institutionally, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Republican Lindsey Graham, has announced that he will investigate “all credible allegations of election malpractice and wrongdoing” in response to receiving an affidavit from a Pennsylvania postal worker about a plan to backdate votes by mail.
“It is imperative that all credible allegations of voting irregularities are investigated to ensure the integrity of the 2020 elections,” Graham said in a statement.
Graham has explained that the affidavit comes from the Donald Trump campaign, but is in the name of postal worker Richard Hopkins of Erie, Pennsylvania.
Hopkins says in the document that Erie Post Office Director Robert Weisenbach told his subordinates that he was “backdating the ballots to make it look like they were collected before November 3, 2020 even though they were of November 4 and later dates “.
