Trump remains defiant, says election 'is not over'

US President Donald Trump remains defiant in the face of possible defeat to his challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden.

Following the news that Pennsylvania and other key states in the election may be called for former Vice President Joe Biden, the Trump campaign declared: “this election is not over.”

“This election is not over,” wrote Trump 2020 campaign general counsel Matt Morgan in a statement. “The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final.”

Biden emerged with a lead on Friday morning in Georgia and Pennsylvania, two states critical to Trump’s path to victory. Biden also leads in Nevada and Arizona with new numbers that were fed into the rolls late Thursday night.

The Trump campaign maintains that the elections in several states, including Wisconsin and Michigan, were tampered with by the Democrat political machine.

“Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected,” the campaign stated, and outlined the current status of the election, according to Breitbart:

Georgia: “Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail.”

Pennsylvania: “There were many irregularities in Pennsylvania, including having election officials prevent our volunteer legal observers from having meaningful access to vote counting locations. We prevailed in court on our challenge, but were deprived of valuable time and denied the transparency we are entitled to under state law.”

Nevada: “In Nevada, there appear to be thousands of individuals who improperly cast mail ballots.”

Arizona: “Finally, the President is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press.
