Trump compared the US to a third world country

Ballots were pouring in from everywhere using devices that don’t even belong to anyone, Donald Trump complained.

The US presidential election was held at the level of a third world country and was “completely rigged”. This was stated by the current head of state Donald Trump during a briefing at the White House, on Monday, December 7.

“The election was rigged. If you look at different States, the election was completely rigged. This is a disgrace to our country. It’s like a third world country, these ballots are pouring in from everywhere using devices that don’t even belong to anyone, and that no one knows anything about,” Trump claimed.

He added that Democrats call it failures, but they were allegedly caught sending out thousands of votes that were all against trump.

“You will see a lot of important things in the next couple of days,” he told reporters.

Earlier it became known that the Trump campaign headquarters spent almost $9 million in the courts. Lawyers for the current head of the White House filed lawsuits in the hope of challenging the election results.

Twitter to publish work report on elections in early 2021

The American company Twitter in early 2021 will publish an analysis of its work to ensure the reliability of election materials on the social network. This is stated in the affidavit of the head of the company Jack Dorsey, prepared on Tuesday during the hearings of the US Senate Judiciary Committee. The hearings, in particular, are devoted to the blocking on Twitter and Facebook of the publication of the New York Post about the correspondence of Hunter Biden, the son of the Democratic presidential candidate Joseph Biden.

“We have seen a record number of relevant Twitter discussions throughout the 2020 election campaign. Our team has defended and will actively defend the integrity of these public comments,” Dorsey said. According to him, the administration of the social network has significantly updated the policy on the designation and removal of false and misleading information, about which the headquarters of candidates and representatives of civil society were informed.

As the head of the company noted, this concerned misinformation about the election procedure, allegations of fraud, as well as the spread of false information about the winner before the announcement of the results. The Twitter administration between October 27 and November 11 has identified some 300,000 entries as controversial and potentially misleading. “This represents 0.2% of all election-related messages published during this period,” Dorsey said.

The US general election was held on November 3. According to leading American media estimates, Democrat Joseph Biden has secured the support of more than 270 electors, whose votes he needs to defeat the current US President Donald Trump in the struggle for the presidency. Biden announced his election victory. Republican Trump, who is running for a second term, did not admit defeat and announced his decision to go to the courts regarding the counting of votes, since, in his opinion, there were numerous violations by Democrats in the elections.

Trump admitted for the first time that he would not be the next US president

For the first time, US President Donald Trump admitted that the next American administration, which will be formed following the elections, will not be headed by him, but by his rival Joe Biden, who is leading the elections.

This was reported by Reuters.

He also said that the administration will not close through restrictive measures in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.

“Ideally, we will not go into isolation. I will not go, this administration will not go into isolation. I hope that no matter what happens in the future – who knows what the administration will be? I think time will tell. But I can tell you that this the administration will not go into isolation, “Trump said.

Meanwhile, the world froze in anticipation of a new political course, which will be proclaimed by Joe Biden, who won the presidential elections in the United States. What will the world be like in 2025?

We also wrote earlier that the candidates for the ministerial posts in the future Biden administration have become known.

Former US presidents Obama, Clinton, and Carter congratulate Biden on winning elections

Former US presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter congratulated Joseph Biden on his victory in the presidential election. Relevant statements were circulated by ex-presidents on Saturday.

Obama, in whose administration Biden served as vice president, said: “When all the votes are counted, President-elect Biden and Vice-President-elect [Kamala] Harris will have a historic victory.” “We are fortunate that Joe has what it takes to be president and is already acting the way,” Obama added.

Clinton stressed: “We now have an elected president and vice president to serve us all and unite us. Congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on a landmark victory.” Carter stated: “We are proud of their successful campaign and look forward to the positive changes they will bring.”

According to forecasts by CNN, NBC, Fox News, and the Associated Press, Biden received the 270 electoral votes he needs to defeat Republican Donald Trump for president.

Biden announced his election victory. Trump did not admit defeat, saying that the vote count cannot be considered complete. The current American leader also confirmed his intention to apply to the courts regarding the counting of votes, since, in his opinion, there were numerous violations committed by the Democrats during the elections.

US elections: the outcome is not yet clear, but the battle has already begun

Judging by the vote count, Joe Biden is the favorite in the race. So far, he has about three million more votes than Trump on his account — but he does not yet have enough electoral votes. Donald Trump, who declared himself the winner in advance on election day night, has protested the counting of votes in many states. American democracy has been stabbed in the gut, writes the European press.

We are witnessing the fall of the USA

The fact that Trump proclaims himself the winner in advance is a nail in the coffin of American democracy, Novi list notes with indignation:

“In almost real-time, we can watch the fall of American democracy. Whoever wins in the end, Trump or Biden: The fact that Trump declared victory when just over two-thirds of the vote was counted will remain in history. And that at the same time he announced that he sees deception and stuffing — and will challenge the victory in the Supreme Court. With such a statement, the President of the United States did not at all make America great again, but practically destroyed the first largest democracy in the world. He destroyed everything that America stands for — freedom, democracy, the power of institutions, and processes because with his statement he makes it clear that the result of the elections will be valid only if it is he who wins them.”

The great country at the bottom of the abyss

Corriere del Ticino editor-in-chief Fabio Pontigia also notes that the election was a testament to the decline of the United States:

“For all those who believe in a liberal democracy, despite all the shortcomings and criticism addressed to it, Trump’s unrepresentability or Biden’s vacuousness serves as a measure of the political decline of a great country and a great democracy. … The candidate selection system is no longer able to nominate individuals of the proper scale, among whom the people could make their choice. Instead, over and over again, we see the United States becoming less and less able to serve as a guideline politically and institutionally. The pre-election struggle between Trump and Biden is the bottom of the abyss”.

And why is no one indignant?

The world community should have expressed its loud outrage at Trump’s statements made during the vote count, De Volkskrant said:

“It is noteworthy that Trump’s unprecedented insult to American voters and the electoral system caused almost no reaction from the international community. Yes, the Democratic Party of the United States and the “mainstream media” (for example, the CNN TV channel so hated by Trump) expressed their indignation — even Fox News could not hold back their indignation! Usually, the world community shouts loudly ‘Shame!’ When, for example, the presidents of several African countries cling to power, intimidating the people, and making outrageous accusations of electoral fraud. Now it is silent — and this is very significant.”

The system needs updating

American democracy needs a decent shake-up, but it lacks consensus, ” said Alexander Stille, assistant professor of political journalism at Columbia University in New York. In his article for El Pais, he writes:

“Even if the final results of the presidential elections have not yet been determined, it can be said unequivocally that the American electoral system became the loser in this election. … The US Constitution, the oldest operating constitution of all democracies in the world, is in urgent need of updating. The electoral system is also in need of renewal in order to ensure at least some degree of fairness, uniformity, and legitimacy. However, against the background of the split that reigns in the country, it will be extremely difficult to achieve the necessary political consensus for such significant reforms.”
