American Elections 2020 – the severe live blog
Friday also passed without a final decision in the US elections. In the decisive states, Joe Biden is currently in the lead:
Georgia: with 4000 votes
Pennsylvania: with 19,000 votes
Nevada: with 22,000 votes
Arizona: with nearly 37,000 votes
A decision is not in sight for the moment. Saturday the following applies: The count continues. The count continues.
What is it actually like in North Carolina and Alaska? The two states, where there is still no achievement, have fallen out of focus because Joe Biden has virtually no chance there. In North Carolina, Trump leads the entire tally and is currently 1.4 percentage points. 98 percent of the votes are counted; it is about 16 voters. IS in Alaska, Trump currently holds nearly 63%; here is still counting in the next few days anyway. There are three voters.
Gradually it seems that Trump is rising. At least that’s what CNN correspondent Jim Acosta reports, referring to “sources” from the White House. Trump is now considering the situation a little more “realistic,” Tes says. However, that doesn’t mean (yet) that the president has already given up.
Even in these annoying counting days – as a reminder: the election was Tuesday 😉 – the difference between Donald Trump and his challenger could be even greater. While Trump tweets wildly and talks about the elections being “stolen” from him, Joe Biden has heard almost nothing. About 26 hours ago he asked his supporters to be patient. Since then, not a word, not a tweet, not even from Kamala Harris. This is supported by the emerging election result for Democratic candidates.
IS Joe Biden has again expanded his leadership in Pennsylvania. It is now more than 19,000 votes up front, reports CNN. If Biden wins the state, it would be tantamount to winning the election.
After US President Donald Trump, Southampton, leaders of the English Premier League, have also called for the count to be “stopped”, but for good reason. The football team is surprisingly at the top of the table after eight match days, ahead of reigning champions Liverpool with seven games. If the championship were stopped now, Southampton would be champions. And the club has never been like this.
The counts are slow, but overall they continue to do well for President Donald Trump’s Democratic challenger. Joe Biden has now been able to expand his lead by a few hundred votes in Pennsylvania and Nevada. On the other hand lost easily back to Georgia and Arizona. But Biden is still at the forefront in all states. If that remains the case, the 78-year-old has clearly won the election.
Donald Trump, president of the United States warned his opponent in the US election Joe Biden not to declare himself the winner of the vote. “Joe Biden shouldn’t wrongly claim the position of president. I could also make this statement. Rehearsals have just begun! “Trump wrote on Twitter. Biden and his vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris announced a speech for the evening (local time). The content is unclear.
In the midst of the ongoing vote count following the US presidential election, the online service Twitter provided a warning to a post in which Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was named “president-elect.” “Officials may not have finished the race when this was tweeted,” the statement read. The author of the contribution was podcaster Scott Dworkin, who is also a co-founder of the anti-Trump Democratic Coalition. In his tweet, Dworkin also referred to Biden’s deputy candidate Kamala Harris as “vice president-elect”. More recently, Donald Trump’s tweets were flagged because his claims that there had been election fraud had not yet been proven.
The CNN-Korrespondent Jim Acosta reports that there is “chaos” in the White House, an adviser told Donald Trump. As a result, Trump still refuses to acknowledge it as a reality that is about to lose the election. Those acting on the president therefore include people from Trump’s “inner circle”, including his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. So far they seem to have been unsuccessful. A tradition in US politics is that the loser in a presidential election first admits his defeat before the winner goes public.
Outside the Clark County Electoral Center, Nevada, to which Las Vegas belongs, A long line of voters has formed and they are being asked to re-identify. As they say, this is used to review the votes cast. The process it’s not unusual, they say, and serves in the current situation, in which Donald Trump questions the election, the purpose of proving beyond doubt that the election and the counting were carried out correctly.
There are some new numbers: After that, Joe has Biden according to CNN extended his very thin lead a bit in Georgia. He is now ahead of Donald Trump with 4,263 votes. Nothing that would make the previously announced story superfluous.
As the count continues and the Republicans want the Supreme Court to stop those counts, According to all reports, there was no evidence or evidence that there was massive election fraud, as Donald Trump claims, that day. Have against the competent authorities especially in the decisive states of Georgia and Pennsylvania repeatedly stresses that they count and control with all care and that is why it is counted for so long.
With a humorous and smug tweet, former Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen recommended an honorable farewell to US President Donald Trump. Rasmussen wrote on Trump’s Twitter: “Just a little tip … This is the right way to leave office with honor after losing an election.” Rasmussen also posted a photo showing him leaving Parliament in Copenhagen after relinquishing the post to his successor Mette Frederiksen last year. The conservative-liberal politician politely combined his “little advice” with a “Thanks for the honest discussions over the past four years.” He also asked Trump to keep in touch with him.
