After weeks of electoral fraud accusations from President Trump, the U.S Electoral College has today come forward with its official verdict on the explosive 2020 presidential election.
Here’s the full story…
And, as Trump and Biden went head-to-head, a record number of Americans made sure to get their votes in early.
It took days for a result to be announced.
As the days trickled by, each state gradually announced their winning candidate and, throughout those tense couple of days, the numbers remained painfully close between President Trump and former vice president, Joe Biden.
And, as the counts went underway, he tried to temporarily stop vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, states where Joe Biden was projected to win.
And then went on to threaten legal action against any state wherein Biden had won.
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.
“America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a president for all Americans – whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me.”
However, there was someone who wasn’t in the mood for celebrating…
And that was President Trump, of course.
Though the president is a historically sore loser – he’s very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life – and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his ongoing refusal to accept what has happened.
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.”
In his rage, Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one who won.
And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes.
Trump seemed 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.”
Throughout the past month, Trump has remained confident in his election victory, despite not actually winning.
While Trump has consistently slammed the Biden campaign of “fraudulent votes,” he has yet to provide any actual evidence.
Well, it didn’t take long for people to flood the line with prank calls.
The internet has been rife with people laughing at the childishness of Trump’s behavior and, of course, many dubbed him as a “sore loser.”
Yesterday, the U.S Electoral College confirmed Joe Biden as the official winner of the 2020 presidential elections.
All fifty states and Washington D.C. have certified their election results, which then allows the 538 electors in the electoral college to meet and cast their ballots, as per the Constitution.
The president-elect has 203 college votes, and Hawaii’s electors are due to bring him up to the forecast 306 votes.
They added that California was the state to push him over the edge with its fifty-five electors.
Though we already knew that he’d won the election fair and square, didn’t we?
