Biden Calls for Counting Every Ballot; Trump Claims Dems Are Stealing Election

By Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – On Thursday and Friday, Joe Biden called for all votes to be counted.

Joe Biden: “In America, the vote is sacred. It’s how people of this nation express their will. And it is the will of the voters — no one, not anything else — that chooses the president of the United States of America. So, each ballot must be counted. And that’s what we’re going to see going through now. And that’s how it should be.”

President Trump addressed the nation early on Thursday evening and falsely claimed victory and accused Democrats of trying to steal the election. He offered no evidence to back up his claims.

President Donald Trump: “We think there’s going to be a lot of litigation, because we have so much evidence, so much proof. And it’s going to end up perhaps at the highest court in the land. We’ll see. But we think there will be a lot of litigation, because we can’t have an election stolen like this.”

ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC all stopped airing Trump’s speech live because it was filled with lies about the election and the vote-counting process.

  • Make it MACALLAN and we will be celebrating together !

  • Mr MacD,
    You pose an interesting question.
    I suspect the answer is manifold and must take into account the nuances of the USA which is a law unto itself- a unique mixture of the truly wonderful and the truly appalling.
    Religion plays a weird part in this. It ain’t such a big deal in Canada or Europe but it plays a big role in places such as the USA and the Middle East.
    Freedom? To many people this trump fella represents freedom from the dictates of the state or the establishment.
    The Right to walk around with assault weapons (or 2nd amendment as I believe they call it).
    The economy stupid? Many people say forget about the trump personality – just look at how good the economy is doing (pre Covid).
    All these things and more. This question you pose will be pored over by many.
    All I can say is that President Elect Joe Biden represents a more acceptable face of a more moderate Capitalism and he doesn’t have the support of the far-right, he is not a liar, he’s not a narcissistic bigot. He seems to be a decent man.
    Four more years of trump? The world has dodged a bullet.
    I have seen people in the USA dancing in the street at the news that the ugly trump era has passed.
    I have to say that I share their joy.
    I shall raise a wee dram or two to them tonight.

  • It is a sobering reality that compared with 2016, an additional seven million Americans have voted for Donald J Trump in 2020. What is it that attracts so many Americans to support him, when throughout much of the rest of the world he is recognized not only as a narcissist, but a poseur (belated religious belief with upside down bible) and a consummate liar?

    Have those of us in the rest of the world missed some hidden attraction?

  • It’s interesting to see Republican politicians and their propaganda machines such as Fox News starting to distance themselves from the trump camp.
    Conversely, the inner circle are huddled around the loser in his bunker still being faithful as the reality of defeat circles ever closer.
    This element (eg that Guiliani sap) remain loyal to the end – fawning and sucking-up – assuring the emperor that he is actually wearing some clothes.
    When are they going to start dishing out the metaphorical cyanide pills?
    The longer they hang on, the more embarrassing this looks to the rest of the world.

  • The US may turn into another Venezuela with 2 presidents with different ideologies.
