After a grueling month of back and forth between both parties, strong tweets from Trump calling for recounts, the Electoral College has officially confirmed Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States.
Through a 6 hour electoral process, the electoral college has announced that Joe Biden will be set to be inaugurated January 20th.
“The results of the November 3 vote have been certified by each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia; the Democrat won with a record 81.3 million votes, or 51.3 percent of those cast, to 74.2 million, and 46.8 percent, for the Republican president.
But in the United States, the occupant of the White House is chosen by indirect universal suffrage, with each state allocating its electors — whose numbers are essentially based on population — to the candidate who carried the state.
The results confirm an easy victory for Biden, with 306 of the 538 electoral votes, to 232 for Trump, with 270 required for election.” – Source
Electoral College Officially Confirms Joe Biden As President Of The United States
This decision from the electoral college will be a tough pill for many Trump supporters to swallow. Many of which still believe the election was “stolen” or at the very least, suspect.
“Donald Trump has meanwhile continued to rage against his election defeat on Twitter, arguing without evidence for his claims that: “Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD, which is all of them, CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct without committing a severely punishable crime.”
His White House adviser Stephen Miller meanwhile took to Fox News to baselessly argue that a separate group of electors could effectively overturn the Electoral College results.” – Source
Any of Trump’s attempts to find legal recourse have faltered.
“The president has doggedly contested his challenger’s victory through a series of frivolous lawsuits, which have so far comprehensively failed to substantiate his baseless claims of widespread voter fraud.” – Source
