AS had been anticipated, US president Donald Trump falsely claimed victory on Tuesday night (early Wednesday morning in Washington, D.C.) at the White House.

Although he might well win the election, the fact is that counting of votes is still ongoing.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, on the other hand, had earlier said that it was not up to him or Trump to decide the winner of the election and that the votes would be counted. The former vice president said that his side believed that they were “on track to win the election.”

Trump said: “We were getting ready for a big celebration. We were winning everything. And all of a sudden it was just called off” and alleged: “This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.”

He wanted “all voting to stop” and threatened to go to the Supreme Court.
