“Frankly, we did win this election,” Trump told supporters in the East Room of the White House early Wednesday morning. “As far as I’m concerned, we have already won.”
The truth is we will not know for sure who won the presidential election for another 24 hours or so as many states were still counting millions of ballots. But President Trump speaking from the White House early Wednesday morning, falsely claimed that he won this election. The President touted his wins in Florida and Texas and claimed without evidence that a “very sad group of people” was trying to disenfranchise his supporters.
Neither Donald Trump nor Biden has reached the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. Votes were still being counted in several key battleground states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
“Presidents do not decide the victor of the election, the American people do,” said Joe Biden during an earlier statement asking his supporters to be patient as state authorities complete the counting of all ballots.
