The fake news media is demanding Donald Trump admit defeat to Joe Biden.
There was a major development on that front.
Donald Trump made this major announcement about conceding the election to Joe Biden.
President Trump claimed Joe Biden is leading in several key states because of widespread voter fraud and irregularities.
Trump also accused the software company Dominion of using faulty software that allowed votes to be changed for playing a major role in the current state of the vote count.
“He won because the Election was Rigged,” the President posted on social media. “NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!“
“RIGGED ELECTION. WE WILL WIN!” the President added.
The fake news media ignored the President’s allegations about illegal votes and irregularities and instead zeroed in on the beginning of Trump’s tweet which they claimed amounted to a concession by saying “He [Biden] won”.
President Trump later posted a follow-up tweet making it clear that Biden was only the President-elect in the minds of the fake news media and that President Trump was not conceding the election.
“He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA. I concede NOTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a RIGGED ELECTION!” President Trump posted on social media.
President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani later told Fox News that the President was being sarcastic.
“What he’s saying is more, I guess you would call it sarcastic or a comment on the terrible times in which we live, in which the media has said he won, but by going on to point out that it was illegal. Obviously, he’s contesting it vigorously in the courts,” Giuliani explained.
The fake news media does not want Americans to believe the Trump campaign has legitimate legal challenges to the vote.
So-called journalists falsely claim that media outlets can declare a winner of the presidential election.
Tech companies like Twitter repeatedly flag President Trump’s tweets declaring victory as being disputed because “official sources” project Biden as the winner.
But none of CNN, The New York Times, ABC, NBC and CBS have an official role in calling the race.
That is not true.
Their projections carry no weight.
The results are final when all the votes are counted and the states certify their results ahead of the mid-December meeting of the Electoral College.
That’s when the electors cast their votes and the winner of the election is officially declared.
