I will be making a statement tonight. A big WIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 4, 2020
The intense jockeying for the states was overshadowed by Trump's extraordinary early-morning declaration from the White House calling for outstanding ballots not to be counted.
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
Earlier today, Mr. Trump prematurely declared victory in the election. He said: “We are going to the United States Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop”.
Trump suggested those ballots shouldn't be counted. But Biden, briefly appearing in front of supporters in Delaware, urged patience, saying the election "ain't over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted."
It's not my place or Donald Trump's place to declare the winner of this election. It's the voters' place.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 4, 2020
Joe also said that "It's not my place or Donald Trump's place to declare who's won this election," Biden said. "That's the decision of the American people."
The volume of mail-in and absentee ballots has been larger in this election than usual because of voters keen to avoid the risk of catching coronavirus at crowded polling stations.
The Biden team added that they have legal teams on standby to resist any move by Mr. Trump to act on his threat to take a case against counting mail-in ballots to the Supreme Court.
