Donald Trump admitted that Joe Biden won the US presidential election for the first time on Sunday, but claimed that an attempt to “steal votes” meant that the game had been rigged, and then insisted : “I admit no! We still have a long way to go.” Although there is no evidence of widespread fraud, the president and his legal team are still focused on challenging the court’s election process.
Biden defeated Trump and won a series of battlefield statements that the current Republican president won in 2016. The former vice president of the Democratic Party also won the national popular vote by more than 5.5 million votes, or 3.6 percentage points.
Trump’s statement was published in a tweet and included several baseless claims about the November 3 presidential election, which state and federal officials said were safe. The President said on Twitter that “he won,” which is something he has never said publicly, even though he said that the victory of the Democratic Party is only in the eyes of the media.
Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits in an attempt to overturn the results of elections in multiple states. Although unsuccessful, legal experts say that the lawsuit has little chance to change the results of the election.
Biden spent several days reunited with his advisers as he weighed cabinet appointments, welcome calls from world leaders, and policies to be adopted after he was sworn in on January 20. He is expected to continue private meetings with consultants on Sunday.
According to data from Edison Research, Biden won 306 votes in the state election commission system that determines presidential candidates, far exceeding the 270 votes required to obtain a majority.
Trump won the same electoral votes of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. Although she won the popular vote of approximately 3 million votes, he called it an “overwhelming victory.”
