A recount has gone ahead in Georgia, and the results are in...

Trump has been claiming there's evidence of election fraud for over 2 weeks now...

Because as you will all be aware, the president suffered a loss to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, for this year's presidential elections.

Of course, Trump has been doing everything in his power to challenge the result...

The evidence has shown that he has resorted to denying the election and its results.

It seems as though Trump was feeling the heat throughout the entire election...

As the counts went underway, he tried to temporarily stop vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, States where Joe Biden was projected to win.

He also called for a recount in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania...

And then went on to threaten legal action against any State wherein Biden had won.

But, regardless of his many threats, the results were in after 4 long days of ballot counting.

The Associated Press called the race for Biden when Pennsylvania's twenty electoral votes put him over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the Electoral College.

Democrats all over the country quickly rejoiced at the news of Biden's historic win...

And remarkable footage of people cheering and celebrating from the streets of New York was quick to circulate.

However, Trump's reaction to Biden's win has been nothing short of eyebrow-raising.

The president has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team and people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.

His first response to Biden's win was to release a lengthy and damning statement...

In which he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. As per Sky News, the statement read: “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. 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."

The statement then went on to explain how legal proceedings will begin immediately.

It continued: “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. 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. “So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands."

And the Twitter rants were quick to follow.

Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one to have won.

He tried to take some small victory from the situation...

And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes.

However, more damning accusations were quick to follow...

Trump seems set on the idea that Biden and his team rigged the entire election to play out in their favor, and made strong hints that something happened in the counting rooms that had "never happened before."

A lot of people haven't been happy with Trump's reaction.

Since the election win, the internet has been rife with people laughing at Trump's behavior and, of course, them dubbing him as a "sore loser."

It's been over 2 weeks...

And unbelievably, he is still determined to prove that there has been something fishy going on all throughout the elections.

It appears that only 3% of Americans that took a recent poll would back him up on that.

Reuters and Ipsos recently conducted a study in which they found out some pretty interesting facts and people have had mixed opinions, to say the least!

So, according to the people they surveyed, only 3% of them think that Donald Trump won the election...

While a whopping eighty percent of people who took part believe Biden won.

But here's the weirdest part:

The results actually found a split between Republicans and Democrats, with approximately 6 in 10 Republicans seeing Biden as the winner, compared to almost every single Democrat seeing Biden as the new president.

The poll also asked the question: Should Trump "concede defeat?"

In which seventy-two percent of the 1,363 US adults that took part answered "yes."

Nevertheless, a recount in Georgia has gone ahead...

And surprisingly, Biden has been confirmed as the winner - making him the first Democrat to take the state since Bill Clinton in 1996.

As per The Guardian, The Associated Press called the race on Thursday evening following the recount.

The recount resulted in officials in 4 counties discovering a total of around 5,800 votes.

Trump has climbed about 1,400 votes closer to Biden as a result...

But officially, he still remains the loser.

The Georgia secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, has said that the discount was due to "human error"...

And that there was no evidence of fraud. “Georgia’s historic first statewide audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper ballot voting system accurately counted and reported results," he said.

He continued.

“This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local elections officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time. “The recount process simply reaffirmed what we already knew: Georgia voters selected Joe Biden to be their next president," said Jaclyn Rothenberg, the Biden campaign spokeswoman, in an email to the Associated Press."

He concluded:

“We are grateful to the election officials, volunteers, and workers for working overtime and under unprecedented circumstances to complete this recount, as the utmost form of public service."

As of now, Trump is yet to concede.
