Following the announcement of Joe Biden’s win in the presidential election, President Donald Trump said in a statement that he will contest President-Elect Joe Biden’s win.
Saturday morning, the Associated Press and NBC News projected Biden to win the state of Pennsylvania, which gives him a projected 290 Electoral College votes to become president. Right after Pennsylvania was called, the Associated Press also called Nevada, meaning even if Biden had not won Pennsylvania, he would reach 270 Electoral College votes.
The Trump campaign released a statement saying, “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over,” … “Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”
Trump also said his campaign will start prosecuting their case in court to ensure election laws are “fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”
The ballots that are left to be counted are provisional ballots and leftover mail in ballots.
The final certification of election in Pennsylvania comes on November 23.
