U.S. President Donald Trump has released a statement, insisting that Joe Biden has not certified as the winner of any state and therefore has refused to concede after Joe Biden his Democratic challenger, secured the required number of electoral college votes and was declared the winner in the presidential race.
Trump stated that the election is far from over, and slammed Biden for claiming the winner falsely. He said, “Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”
The president reiterated his allegation that his team was prevented from vote counting centres in key battleground states.
He singled out Pennsylvania, whose 20 electoral college votes put Biden over the 270 required to clinch the seat.

Statement From President Donald J Trump
“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him; they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any state, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. In Pennsylvania for example, our legal votes decide who is president and not the news media.
“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American People are entitled to an honest election; that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election. It remains shocking that Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principles and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room- and then fight in court to block their access.”
“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands”
