Republican says he will go to court to ensure he stays at the White House.
The defeated candidate in the election for the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump, did not recognize the victory of Democrat Joe Biden this Saturday, 7, and stated that the race is still “far from over”. In a statement released by his campaign, Trump said that on Monday, 9, his team will file lawsuits “to ensure that electoral laws are fully upheld and the legitimate winner is appointed.
Trump has questioned the fairness of the process since early preliminaries pointed to Biden’s leadership in the dispute, despite not providing evidence of the charges. He repeatedly threatened to go to the Supreme Court to guarantee his stay in the White House, and even went so far as to declare himself elected twice, although the votes were not all added up.
“I will not rest until the American people have the vote count they deserve and that democracy demands,” said Trump. Biden was named the winner after winning in the State of Pennsylvania and adding 273 electoral delegates, exceeding the minimum of 270 representatives needed to take the Electoral College.
The dispute in the USA is indirect, and not necessarily the candidate with the highest number of votes in the population is the winner ( understand better here ). Vote counting continues in the states of North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona. Of the four, Trump maintains an advantage only in North Carolina.
