It’s not like there weren’t warning signs Trump would do ANYTHING to win. (*see last 4 years)
Trump claims to have won and made allegations that his supporters were being disenfranchised. Twitter has flagged Trump’s post,
“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
No major news organization have declared a winner in the 2020 presidential race, and either candidate could still win.
Trump said last night,
“Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight. And a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people and we won’t stand for it.”
All across the country, election officials are processing and tabulating ballots. Democrats have not sought to stop officials from counting ballots why would they…?
“We’re winning Pennsylvania by a tremendous amount of votes.
We’re winning Michigan by — I’ll tell you, I looked at the numbers, I said, ‘Whoa.’ I looked, I said, ‘Wow that’s a lot.’ By almost 300,000 votes and 65 percent of the vote is in. And we’re winning Wisconsin.”
Trump was leading in the vote tallies in all three states when he made this claim in his 2:20AM remarks, but those states had only just started counting millions of mail ballots. Democrats favor voting by mail, so Trump’s lead is expected to shrink as mail-in ballots are counted.
(Right now, Biden leads in Wisconsin & Michigan at 9AM EST)
That’s exactly what happened in Wisconsin When Milwaukee reported its absentee ballot totals, Biden pulled ahead in the state shortly before 5 AM ET.
In PA election officials began processing nearly 2.5 million mail ballots Tuesday morning Just before 3AM, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf said there was more than a million ballots left to count. Trump leads in PA by 600,000 votes, so far.
According to NBC News,
Officials have warned it could take days for them to process, verify and tabulate the mail ballots, and at least seven counties chose to wait to begin processing and counting mail-in ballots until Wednesday morning, due to space and resource limitations.
In Michigan, more than 3 million people have voted by mail, and most jurisdictions did not begin processing those ballots until Tuesday. While Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson had previously warned the counting could take until the end of the week, she told NBC News on Tuesday that the final tally will be coming in “much sooner than Friday.”
NBC News and other outlets have characterized all three races as
“too close to call.”
Trump also suggested that he won other states .
“It’s also clear that we have won Georgia. We’re up by 2.5 percent or 117,000 votes with only 7 percent left. They’re never going to catch us. Likewise we’ve clearly won North Carolina.
They can’t catch us.”
Nine states are not yet called. #CountEveryVote
We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 4, 2020
