President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign announced that “the election is not over,” although former Vice President Joe Biden suddenly took the lead in Pennsylvania on Friday (November 6th) and strengthened his presidential bid.
“The false projection of Joe Biden as a winner is based on results in four states that are not yet over,” campaign general advisor Matt Morgan said in a statement. “Georgia is heading towards a recount where we are sure we will find the wrongly collected ballot papers and where President Trump will eventually prevail,” Morgan said, according to the New York Post.
The statement alleged that there were “many irregularities” in Pennsylvania, including preventing election officials from voluntary legal observers from having meaningful access to the counting places, and that the campaign “was deprived of our precious time and denied the transparency to which we are entitled to state law.” The update comes just hours after the Trump campaign won a lawsuit for an equal number of survey observers in the ballot box counting room in the state.
In Nevada, where Biden is currently leading, the campaign claimed that it “falsely looked like thousands of people voting by mail”. They also claimed that in Arizona, which was called for Biden by the Associated Press and Fox News a few days ago, Trump’s “on the way to win” despite the irresponsible and erroneous “calls” to the state. “Biden is on the way to the White House.” He trusts these states for his false claims, but when the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected.
After Trump announced that he effectively won the election and accused Democrats of voter fraud, MEAWW spoke to some experts about the possibility of the president’s refusal to accept the race.
Micheal Genovese, head of the Global Policy Institute at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, said the official had already warned of allegations of fraud in some states and would challenge various state results in court. Fearing that violence could come if the president refuses to accept it, Genovese said, “He pointed this out weeks ago and seems intent on continuing this option. It will further divide an already divided country and elevate the toxic politics that already characterize American politics. If the president loses and refuses to leave, turmoil and some violence can ensue. It can get very ugly. ”
He is a senior lecturer in American History at the University of Norwich, East Anglia, England, Department of American Studies. Kaeten Mistry said Trump has been planting seeds of doubt about the reality of the election for weeks. “In his first speech after the ballot boxes were closed, he declared victory and claimed that he would go to the Supreme Court even though the count was ongoing. “They’re both wrong but it shows that they don’t plan to admit it.”
Professor Russell Lucas, associate professor of International Affairs and Global Studies at Michigan State University, said Trump’s claim was false, but he would be pressured not to admit it. Anticipating weeks of legal wars, Lucas said, “Last night President Trump mistakenly declared victory over all the evidence. His campaign also demands a recount of the Wisconsin vote and filed lawsuits in Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania to halt the vote count. Therefore, legal maneuvers can take several weeks. “
