The results of the US presidential elections were overdue, as was the recognition of the defeat of Donald Trump. Eight days after the victory of Democratic candidate Joe Biden, the American president seemed to get used to the idea of having to leave the White House … before pedaling backwards.
On his favorite social network, Donald Trump spoke again on Sunday, November 15. Referring to former Vice President Barack Obama, he tweeted: “He won because the election was rigged.” Of course, the American president has again raised the hypothesis of massive fraud. But the first two words of his tweet attracted attention because it is the first time he pronounces them since the results were announced.
Dramatic change less than an hour later. In a new tweet, Donald Trump backs down and clarifies his thinking: “(Joe Biden) only won in the eyes of” FAKE NEWS MEDIA “. I do not concede anything! We still have a long way to go. This choice WAS PRESENTED! “
No fraud according to the electoral authorities
On Friday, the American president had for the first time mentioned, in half words, his opponent’s victory by suggesting that he would no longer be there after January 20 to handle the coronavirus crisis. Before starting over there too.
Results have been announced for all states by the main American television channels. Joe Biden won 306 voters, against 232 for the outgoing president, the inverse score of the Republican billionaire’s victory in 2016.
Several local and national electoral authorities, including the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), directly contradicted the president over his allegations of fraud. “The November 3 election was safest in U.S. history“they said in a joint statement.” There is not there is no evidence that a voting system has deleted, lost or changed ballots, or that it has been hacked either way “.
