It was the second message issued by the president after the election day last Tuesday.
We had historic victories there was no blue wave, this was false. There was a great red wave ”, assured the US president.
The president reiterated his victory in key states, despite the fact that the Electoral College’s vote count gives him a disadvantage of 214 over the 264 that the Democrat adds at the end of this edition.
We cannot allow anyone to muzzle our voters and make up the results. I have the feeling that the judges are going to have to decide in the end ”, warned the president.
Yesterday, during the day, his campaign team contested in the states where the counting of the votes has not yet concluded.
Stop the counts, “Trump said via Twitter in the morning.
In contrast, the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden called to wait for the count.

Meanwhile, in Nevada, it announced that it will keep the count until November 12.
LIVE MESSAGE INTERRUPTED
American television channels interrupted the transmission of the presidential message, considering it fostered misinformation.
When the Republican asked to count the legal votes, the networks NBC News, ABC News and MSNBC cut the signal that they broadcast live.
Well, here we are again in the unusual position of having to, not only interrupt the president of the United States, but also correct the president of the United States, “said host Brian Williams.
For its part, CNN broadcast the statement live without interruption.
In this context, some Republican politicians distanced themselves from the president’s statements.
Taking days to count legally cast votes is not fraud. And legal challenges to the votes presented after the legal voting period is not suppression, “said Florida Senator Marco Rubio.
Since retirement, former Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona was more blunt: “No Republican should agree with the president’s statements at this time. Unacceptable. Point”.
