WILMINGTON, Del./WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump falsely claimed victory over Democratic rival Joe Biden on Wednesday with millions of votes still uncounted in a White House race that will not be decided until tallying is completed over the coming hours or days.
By early Wednesday, race had fallen to a few states, and both Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, could get the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the White House.
Biden said he was confident of winning the game once the votes were counted. Soon after, Trump appeared at the White House to declare his victory and said his lawyers would submit his case to the US Supreme Court, but did not specify their claims.
“We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election,” Trump said. “This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So we’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop.” He provided no evidence to back up his claim of fraud.
Voting has ended, and voting across the country has stopped. However, the election laws of the states in the United States require all votes to be counted, and it usually takes several days for many states to complete the counting of votes. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, people voted by mail and in person earlier this year than ever before.
Biden pinned his hopes on the so-called “blue wall” states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, which sent Trump to the White House in 2016, although they may take hours or days to complete the count. Biden’s lead in Wisconsin is very small, while Trump leads in Michigan and Pennsylvania. More mailed votes may overthrow the Democratic Party, but it still needs to be calculated.
Winning these three states is enough to make Biden win. Fox News predicts that Biden will win Arizona. Arizona voted for Trump in 2016, which gave him more options.
Even without Pennsylvania, Biden’s victories in Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin, as well as his expected victories in the Nebraska congressional district (distributed votes by region), as long as he still holds Nevada, he will Enter the White House. clue.
Trump said that he still believes he can win Arizona and is counting on victory in at least two of the three “blue wall” states.
Earlier in the evening, Trump won the battlefields in Florida, Ohio and Texas, breaking Biden’s hopes of a decisive early victory, but Biden said he believed he would enter three The key “rust zone” states are expected to win.
“We feel good about where we are,” Biden said in his home state of Delaware, shouting over a din of supporters in cars honking their horns in approval. “We believe we’re on track to win this election.”
According to Edison Research Biden leads Trump by 224 to 213 in the electoral college vote.
Trump leads the two states in Georgia and North Carolina. He served in 2016 but is still counting votes in these two states.
“The president’s statement tonight about trying to shut down the counting of duly cast ballots was outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect,” Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a statement.
With the influx of results, the global stock market was turning around in early trading. It now seems unlikely that a final convening within a few days will be possible. The result has increased the possibility of a deadlock, which has caused the U.S. government to rapidly increase spending in response to the big deal. The possibility of the impact of the epidemic becomes complicated.
