While rival dem Joe Biden gains ground in the count of postal votes, Donald Trump denounces fraud and speaking to the United States assures that victory will be his. “If you count the legal votes, I win easily. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal our elections, ”the president said at a press conference. "I would like to update the American people on our efforts to protect the integrity of the elections," says Trump. “We are checking, many votes have arrived late. I have already won many crucial states, even with overwhelming victories. I got historic victories, the polls were completely wrong and interfered with the vote, they were designed to keep our voters at home ", the tycoon goes on the attack.
The attack on the polls
Trump is a river in flood, he denounces the distorted projections to condition the voters, pointing out that the outcome of the vote has denied the media sided with the dem. “The polls have tried to suppress the vote. They predicted I would lose in Florida, but I won instead. They predicted my defeat by 4 points in Ohio, I won by 8 points. They had predicted my large defeat in Wisconsin, there is a heads up. They are trying to steal the elections from us, they are trying to rig them and we cannot allow it ”, reiterates Trump, confirming that he wants to block the count of“ late votes ”. "There was no blue wave, there was a red wave", he always adds about the predictions of the press sided with Biden.
All postal votes for Biden are targeted by the president
But it is against the postal vote - millions and millions of ballots voted and still to be checked - and possible fraud that Trump hurls himself with force: “There are few states that have to conclude the counting of votes. We were winning in all the key states, then miraculously our numbers started to drop. All this in secret, they did not allow observers to be present. We went to the court, the observers entered but remained at a distance. There was a lack of transparency in this process, I had already spoken of the postal vote: a corrupt system “, he points out. "On election night we were clearly ahead in North Carolina and we are still ahead, but by a smaller margin because all of a sudden the ballots arrive in the mail, all sent for only one part", he stresses referring to the somewhat suspicious fact that in some cases the votes in the mail are 100% for your rival. “I won clearly in Pennsylvania and now the advantage is only 90,000 votes, these cards arrive: they find them everywhere and they don't want observers to be there, even if according to a judge there should be. We just want the card count to be observed. In Georgia I won big on election night, and here too the lead has dropped and now I might as well be behind. We had won in Michigan, the same in Wisconsin. We are close to victory in Arizona, our forecasts are positive ”, highlights the president.
"I challenge Joe and every dem to clarify that the only votes are legal ones"
Then the tycoon turns to his supporters calling them together: “I've never seen so much love, so much affection and so much support. People are what's going on, they see it. There are legal actions underway, they are trying to steal the elections and rig them: we cannot allow that to happen. We cannot allow voting in Pennsylvania to be conditioned by fraud. It is clear that they are trying to commit fraud ", is the prosecution. “I said these things would happen, tens of millions of ballots were sent. The signatures were not checked, it was not checked whether people could vote. Votes are calculated without postmark and without any type of identification. Bad things are happening, it is an unprecedented situation due to the corrupt democratic machine: there will be legal action ", he explains pointing the finger at what is happening in Pennsylvania (the state of Biden where the night of the election day Trump was clearly advantage) and in particular in Philadelphia. Detroit, Michigan is also targeted, "another place that doesn't have a great reputation for election integrity. A large center where the ballots are counted obscured the windows and our observers were denied access. Groups of ballots arrived very late at 4 in the morning, with the ballot boxes closed ”. "I challenge Joe and any Democrat to clarify that the only votes are legal ones, that only legal votes should be counted, we want transparency and honesty," Trump concludes.
The media boycott against the tycoon
Meanwhile, the media boycott against the president continues - as happens with social media that have obscured or removed numerous posts. In fact, yesterday the TV network that includes ABC, CBS and MSNBC interrupted the transmission of Trump's speech. Presenter Brian Williams also made a heavy statement: “We are still in the unusual position of not only interrupting the US president, but also of correcting him. There have been no illegal votes as far as we know and there hasn't been a Trump victory as far as we know. "
Here are the key states still at stake
At present, the situation of the counting of votes sees the dem candidate in the lead, closer to the threshold of the 270 votes of the big voters needed to win. However, several key states are still at stake: in Arizona, Biden is just off the president; in Pennsylvania, Trump's lead has shrunk, but millions of votes are still missing
