The current tenant of the White House denounces, without the slightest tangible proof, massive fraud in several states and has launched a judicial guerrilla war led, in extreme confusion, by his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
“I think (Americans) are witnessing incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages sent to the rest of the world about how democracy works,” Biden said from his home base in Wilmington, Delaware.
“It’s hard to understand how this man reasons,” he continued. “I have no doubts that he knows he has lost and that I will be sworn in on January 20. What he is doing is just outrageous.”
Nationally, Joe Biden, who turns 78 on Friday, won nearly 80 million votes in the November 3 poll, against just under 74 million for the Republican billionaire.
But the White House is played out through a system of elected voters in each state, and the Democrat’s victory is short in a handful of them.
In Georgia, the count gave him, at the time of the initial count, only 14,000 votes ahead of his rival, a gap so narrow that a recount by hand took place.
Beyond Georgia, the president and his allies have filed a series of appeals in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona and Nevada.
Some have been rejected by the courts, others withdrawn by those concerned, but President Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer is struggling to support the last. This week, for the first time in decades, the former mayor of New York even pleaded before a federal judge, without providing material elements.
As he spoke, Donald Trump tweeted. “Case closed of electoral fraud, en masse!”, He wrote.
Another front of this guerrilla: two Republican activists responsible for participating in the certification of results near Detroit, Michigan, refused for long hours on Tuesday to affix their signature, before giving in to the outcry sparked by this unprecedented gesture.
Wednesday evening, they wanted to go back. In the meantime, “I got a call from President Trump,” one of the two, Monica Palmer, told the Washington Post. “It wasn’t pressure, he was worried about my safety,” she added.
Republican Senator Mitt Romney, a former White House candidate and often critical of Mr. Trump, accused him of exerting “overt pressure on national and local authorities to reverse the will of the people and overthrow the election.” .
“It is difficult to imagine a worse and more undemocratic action on the part of a US president in office,” he cracked in his statement released on Twitter Thursday evening.
Joe Biden, for his part, continues to prepare for his accession to the White House, scheduled for January 20. He met with governors on Thursday to discuss the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has claimed more than 250,000 lives in the United States.
An outgoing President (Trump) who refuses to concede defeat, an elected President (Biden) who will take power on January 20, and who begins to build his teams.
What will the Biden administration look like? His cabinet? Which teams will the future 46th POTUS work with? And what will be its room for maneuver?
