After the dramatic twists and turns last night, we’re finally getting some answers from all the lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign.
Now, a statement has been made.
And Donald Trump is not going to be a happy man upon hearing this.
Let’s take a look at some of the most important events that have gone down in the last seventy-two hours.
And according to the Independent, polls showed that Biden and his vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, lead the way, being favored amongst 66% of voters.
And the first results of the 2020 election rapidly began flooding in.
It was quickly confirmed that Trump won in a number of states, including Indiana, Kentucky, and Alabama, while Biden won over the West Coast states, such as California, Washington, and Oregon.
At the time of writing, Trump calls a win with 51.3% of the vote, while Biden had 47.8%.
He has secured Ohio, a state that has predicted every president since 1964.
As per projections from NBC News and Fox News, Trump is projected to win in Ohio, which has predicted every president since 1964.
The Republican senator confirmed her re-election.
“We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we would go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer!” Biden said.
“But we feel good about where we are. I’m here to tell you tonight we believe we’re on track to win this election.”
It was quickly deleted from the social media platform.
Trump wins the crucial seat, earning him 38 electoral points.
In a speech, he expressed a worry that ballots would be found at “4 o’clock in the morning” which he didn’t think should be counted.
He followed up his wish to close voting by suggesting he would be taking the matter to the Supreme Court.
Trump said: “As far as I am concerned, we have already won.”
In a huge turn of events, Biden is predicted to win the state of Arizona, which will secure him a crucial 11 electoral votes.
It’s a battleground state that Trump won 4 years prior.
The state has previously only ever backed 1 other Democratic candidate in the last 72 years, so this is a huge event for Biden and his party tonight.
Biden defeated Trump, winning 3 of the state’s 4 Electoral College votes.
“The president’s statement tonight about trying to shut down the counting of duly cast ballots was outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect,” said Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon in a statement:
“It was outrageous because it is a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.
“It was unprecedented because never before in our history has a president of the United States sought to strip Americans of their voice in a national election. Having encouraged Republican efforts in multiple states to prevent the legal counting of these ballots before Election Day, now Donald Trump is saying these ballots can’t be counted after Election Day either.
“And it was incorrect because it will not happen. The counting will not stop. It will continue until every duly cast vote is counted. Because that is what our laws — the laws that protect every Americans’ constitutional right to vote — require.
“We repeat what the Vice President said tonight: Donald Trump does not decide the outcome of this election. Joe Biden does not decide the outcome of this election. The American people decide the outcome of this election. And the democratic process must and will continue until its conclusion.”
Surpassing Clinton’s 65,853,625 with 65,881,145 votes.
Andahl died of COVID-19 last month aged fifty-five, but the election results in North Dakota showed the Bismarck-area district going to both him and Dave Nehring.
The election will be going on for quite some time, according to recent numbers.
And it was reported that the state still had more than 515,000 votes to be counted.
After more ballots were tallied last night, Biden is now within striking distance of Trump, putting the Democrat on the verge of a surprising comeback in the all-important swing state.
After securing Wisconsin and Michigan and as mail-in ballots continue to be counted in Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Nevada, Biden currently stands an 86.7% chance of beating Trump, according to gambling website Betfair.
Other websites have even placed the stakes higher.
Election Betting Odds currently has Biden at an 87.7% chance of winning and Trump at a measly 11.6%.
In light of Trump’s comments, crowds of protestors have taken to the counting center chanting “stop the vote.”
Security guards had refused entry to any more poll watchers attempting to access the counting room, causing Republican supporters to claim that being denied access meant the people inside were disproportionately Democratic, but others in the group noticed Democrats had been kept out as well.
With the possibility of a Biden victory, his house in Wilmington, Delaware, has been marked as a restricted area for flights, along with 1 other location in the city.
The area has been designated as “national defence airspace” in a measure that will be in place at least until Friday.
In fact, they’re so hopeful that they’ve vowed that if he manages to win this election, Biden will rejoin the Paris climate agreement on the first day of his presidency.
This move comes soon after Trump removed the United States from the agreement, so this would be a very bold move for the potential incoming president to make.
In a series of tweets, the president has claimed that any votes that arrived after the election day will not be counted.
And of course, the inflammatory demand has shocked and appalled the American public.
CBS reported that Chatham County Board of Elections in Georgia has dismissed the suit.
“[T]he Court finds that there is no evidence that the ballots referenced in the petition were received after 7:00 pm on election day, thereby making those ballots invalid,” the judge said.
