President Donald Trump finally admits reality…kind of.
It has been a week full of unsubstantiated conspiracy theories, as well as the current administration wrongly telling people that Trump indeed won the election. While they have refused to come to grips with Joe Biden winning the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada resulting in a projected 306 -232 electorial win for the former Vice President of the United States.
Today, (Nov. 15), Trump finally uttered the words he refused to say since the race was called last Saturday. That Biden has won the election. It happened through his favorite communication medium, Twitter.
“He won because the Election was Rigged,” he wrote. Note – there is no evidence the election was rigged. In a statement from the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee, made up of many people appointed by the Trump administration, they said that the 2020 election was “the most secure in American history.” They also said that “there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes or was in any way compromised.”
Of course, he later backtracked on those comments continuing to declare “we will win” and will “concede nothing.”
Again. It wasn’t a rigged election. By any stretch of the imagination.
Several outstanding lawsuits are still open in various states that helped secure Joe Biden the Presidential win. Friday (Nov. 13), was a bad day for his administration after the judge threw out various lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan due to lack of evidence of fraud. Lawyers also backed out of a lawsuit in Arizona after realizing that no matter the decision from the judge it would not change the outcome in the state.
Electors are to officially cast their vote based on state results on December 14th. In nearly all cases, the electors vote based on the vote in their state. Joe Biden’s inauguration is set for January 20, 2021.
