The outgoing President of the United States, Donald Trump on Sunday admitted the victory of his Democratic party presidential rival Joe Biden in the November 3 elections, but insisted that there was a fraud.
“He won because the Election was Rigged,” President Trump wrote on Twitter. Trump attached to his message an extract from an intervention on the American television channel Fox News by conservative political commentator Jesse Waters, in which he states that Biden triumphed over fraud.
On November 7, the projections of the main media in the country gave Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential elections. Trump, however, not recognizing the defeat.
In a later tweet, the outgoing President insisted: Biden “only won in the eyes of the fake news media, I concede nothing.” We have a long way to go. This was a fraudulent election!”
To date, Trump has only achieved minor victories in the courts, with setbacks such as Friday’s results in two courts in Pennsylvania, where six lawsuits filed for his election campaign have been dismissed.
In his publication, Trump echoed allegations of electoral fraud on the part of Dominion Voting Systems, a manufacturer of suffrage counting machines.
On Thursday, Trump published another tweet citing the theory that the company removed millions of votes in its favor, citing a link to the One America News Network website.
These conspiracy theories and allegations of electoral fraud, which Trump himself is promoting, appear to be affecting his followers. On Saturday, thousands of supporters of the president protested in Washington D.C. against alleged electoral fraud, in a demonstration that was peaceful until night began to fall, when anti-Trump protestors attacked, injuring dozens.
Mr. Trump’s refusal to concede has brought to a standstill the normal handover procedure to the incoming administration ahead of the inauguration scheduled for January 20th.
The General Services Administration (GSA), the agency of the Government responsible for kickstarting the process, has yet to recognized Mr. Biden as the president-elect and his running mate Kamala Harris as the election victors.
The Biden team is in a big way being frustrated as it has so far not been given access to classified security briefings, federal agencies, and funding needed to ensure a smooth transition of power.
