US President Donald Trump announced his victory in the 2020 elections for the second time in a day. He did it again via his Twitter blog.
“I won the election!” – says the post of the American leader. The social network has provided this statement with a warning about unreliability, as it has often done recently with the publications of the head of state. “Official sources assess the election results differently,” the postscript says.
A few hours earlier, Trump posted a message with the same content, and it was also flagged as inauthentic.
Earlier it was reported that Trump’s headquarters dropped most of the requirements in the lawsuit, which was aimed at challenging the results of the presidential election in Pennsylvania, the lawsuit was filed in a new version. The Trump team said Republicans were at a disadvantage due to the counting rules in some constituencies. In particular, it was allowed to correct errors in the bulletins that were sent by mail. At the same time, Trump’s headquarters rejected allegations that election officials violated his constitutional rights, as they allegedly limited the ability of his observers to monitor the vote count.
On November 7, Democratic candidate Joe Biden won 290 with the required 270 electoral votes. Having secured his victory, he declared himself the President-elect of the United States. Trump, in turn, said that the elections are not officially over yet, and the results will be appealed in court. He believes that Biden was quick to call himself the country’s new leader.
