“I easily win the Presidency” – even as Biden leads, Trump refuses to go down

Even as his opponent Biden inches closer to Presidency, incumbent President Donald Trump refuses to go down. In a Facebook post on late Friday evening (IST), Trump reaffirmed that he will easily get a second term, “legally.”

The US President alleged that observers were not allowed at counting centres in any form and so the votes registered in this period must not be accepted, adding that Supreme Court of the country should decide.

“I easily WIN the Presidency of the United States with LEGAL VOTES CAST. The OBSERVERS were not allowed, in any way, shape, or form, to do their job and therefore, votes accepted during this period must be determined to be ILLEGAL VOTES. U.S. Supreme Court should decide,” Trump wrote on Facebook.

Matthew Morgan, the general of Trump’s campaign, also insisted that the election is not over yet. “This election is not over. The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final. Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail,” Morgan said.

Reiterating Republican allegations of corruption in the elections, Morgan said, “There were many irregularities in Pennsylvania, including having election officials prevent our volunteer legal observers from having meaningful access to vote counting locations. We prevailed in court on our challenge, but were deprived of valuable time and denied the transparency we are entitled to under state law. In Nevada, there appear to be thousands of individuals who improperly cast mail ballots.”

He concluded his statement with a affirming statement about Trump’s return to the White House. “Finally, the President is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press. Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected,” Morgan said.

Meanwhile Biden appears to be a taking a decisive lead in the elections. Whether Trump would be able to pull off an upset from here to reverse the results would be interesting to see.
