President Donald J. Trump has announced he will challenge the voting results in Pennsylvania and other states, claiming election violations and possibly fraud have taken place. Those claims have yet to be substantiated by an independent authority, but the Trump campaign feels it has enough evidence to prove their case in court.
Trump claimed Joe Biden is falsely posing as the winner of the election after the major media networks coordinated a Saturday morning announcement of the election victory by Biden. Trump says elections are decided by legal votes, not the media.
“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over,” Trump said. “Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”
On Monday, the campaign will file lawsuits to challenge alleged ballot counting infractions and irregularities.
“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots,” Trump said. “This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.”
Trump said America demands an honest vote count.
“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands,” Trump said.
