President Trump spoke from the White House in the early morning on Nov. 4, promising a legal challenge to the election results.
Presidential opponent, Joe Biden on the other hand mention earlier that “we believe we’re on track to win this election” and pleaded for patience, while Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan votes are still being counted. “It ain’t over till every vote is counted,” Biden said.
Biden’s campaign manager spoke out against Trump’s early-morning statement, in which he falsely described continuing to count votes as fraud, calling it “outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect.”
In a statement, Jen O’Malley Dillon described Trump’s speech as “a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.” She said it was not up to the president to make such a call.
“The counting will not stop,” she wrote. “It will not stop until every duly cast vote is counted. Because that is what our laws — the laws that protect every American’s constitutional right to vote — require.”
O’Malley Dillon added that the Biden campaign has “legal teams standing by ready to deploy” if Trump seeks court intervention.
The current count is Biden 238 to Trump 213. Continue to follow us for updates.
