US President Donald Trump in a statement on Saturday said the US presidential election is not over despite several media outlets projecting Democratic nominee Joe Biden as the winner, Sputnik news agency reported.
“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,” Trump said in the statement.
“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.”
Earlier, it was reported that Biden has won the 2020 presidential election according to several media projections, including the CNN, NBC and Fox News broadcasters as well as the AP news agency.
According to their data, Biden secured the necessary 270 electoral votes.
The media outlets proceed from the current results of the vote-counting in Pennsylvania.
The official ballot counting is still ongoing.
