The incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump said that he was going to win in eight states where he lost according to official figures.
The leader of the country made this statement after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden ridiculed Trump, saying that he “whines and complains” about the election results instead of fighting the coronavirus.
According to Trump, Democrats are accusing him of complaining about the outcome of the Georgia election. “No, no. I’m complaining about eight states and I think I’m going to win them all,” the president said to supporters in Georgia.
He promised his supporters that things would soon change. “See what happens in the next couple of weeks, what happens and what opens up,” Trump stressed.
Earlier, The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump urged the lieutenant governor of Georgia, a key U.S. state in the presidential election, to recount votes in his favor. It is noted that this is evidenced by the recording of a conversation between the head of the White House and Brad Raffensperger.
On November 3, 2020, the next U.S. presidential election was held. At the moment, the vote count and proceedings are still ongoing. According to media estimates, Biden won the number of electoral votes necessary for victory, thus beating the incumbent U.S. leader Donald Trump. The Democrat has already declared himself the elected president of the United States. Trump, in turn, said that Biden rushed to call himself the new leader of the country.
