White House announces Trump's "victory" speech

The White House announced U.S. President Donald Trump’s victory speech on Monday, January 4, in Georgia, where, according to official data, his rival Joe Biden won.

According to the president’s daily schedule circulated by the White House, Trump will work from early morning to late evening. He has many calls and meetings scheduled. At 4:10 p.m., the head of state will leave the White House and travel to Dalton, Georgia, where he will hold his victory rally in support of Republican candidates in the Jan. 5 U.S. Senate runoff election.

Earlier, The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump urged the vice governor of Georgia, one of the key U.S. states in the presidential election, to recount votes in his favor. It is noted that this is evidenced by a recording of the conversation between the head of the White House and Brad Raffensperger. The conversation was also attended by Ryan Germain, legal adviser to the Lieutenant-Governor.

On November 20, a recount in the state of Georgia of the votes cast in the U.S. presidential election confirmed the victory of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

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.
