Joe Biden win: Donald Trump reacts by saying "I won"
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, finally reacted to the electoral victory of Democrat Joe Biden. He persists claiming to be the winner of the elections.
"Observers have not been allowed access to the rooms where the votes are counted. I won the elections, I obtained 71 million legal votes," he said in capital letters on Twitter this Saturday.
"Bad things happened that our observers could not see. This has never happened before. Millions of postal ballots were sent to people who never requested them," Trump said on Twitter without providing any evidence of such voter fraud. A little later he also wrote: "71,000,000 legal votes. A record for a sitting president."
After four days of suspense in a country on the edge, the former vice president of Barack Obama, according to projections by CNN, NBC and CBS, crossed the "magic" threshold of 270 voters. On January 20, 2021, he will become the 46th President of the United States. His running mate, Kamala Harris, would go down in history as the first black woman to become vice president.
Joe Biden promised to be "the president of all Americans."
"I am honored and humbled by the trust that the Americans have placed in me and the Vice President-elect," Joe Biden said in a statement. "With the campaign over, it is time to leave behind the anger and fiery rhetoric and unite as a nation.
"It is time for America to come together and heal its wounds." According to Joe Biden, the record turnout despite "unprecedented obstacles" is "further proof that democracy is beating fervently at the heart of America." "We are the United States of America. There is nothing we cannot do if we do it together," he said.
