President falsely claims victory as Joe Biden tells supporters to keep the faith
(WJW) – Americans are waking up without results in the presidential election.
Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and North Carolina are still counting votes and the races have not been called.
However, President Donald Trump claimed victory in four of those states in a speech at the White House just after 2 a.m. Wednesday.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election,” the president said.
“A very sad group of people, is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won't stand for it,” he said.
There is no evidence of fraud.
Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to supporters in Delaware about an hour earlier.
“I'm here to tell you tonight, we believe we're on track to win this election,” he said.
“We knew because of the unprecedented early vote, and the mail-in vote that it was going to take a while, we're going to have be patient until the hard work of tallying votes is finished, and it ain't over ‘til every vote is counted, every ballot is counted,” he continued.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said at 3 a.m. Wednesday that the state had more than a million votes to count.
The Associated Press is not calling the presidential race yet because neither candidate has secured the 270 electoral college votes needed to claim victory.
