US head of state Donald Trump actually refused to guarantee a peaceful transfer of power after the US presidential election.
He expressed hope that “there will be fair elections.”
“But if I see that tens of thousands of ballots have been rigged, I will not be able to agree with this,” TASS quoted him as saying.
When asked if the president was counting on the intervention of the Supreme Court, Trump replied, “Yes, I think I’m counting on them to look at the ballots.” He hopes that the Supreme Court “will not be needed in terms of the elections themselves.”
“But regarding the ballots – I think so because what is happening is incredible,” Trump said.
Biden promised not to declare himself the winner in the elections until the voting results are confirmed by an independent party. He is confident Trump will do the same. According to Biden, “when all the ballots are processed, the point will be drawn.”
We will remind, in the USA the first pre-election televised debates between Trump and Biden took place. Biden called the US president a “liar”, “clown” and “Putin’s puppy.”
Trump urged supporters to report to polling stations on election day and “watch closely” for violations. He also said the election results may not be known for months due to a “catastrophic” mail-order vote. Biden called for trust in the postal vote.
