Americans are holding their breath. In the aftermath of the US presidential election, the results are still not known. At the time of writing, the votes in several states are still being counted, in particular because of the impressive number of ballots arrived by post. But despite the result still pending, Donald Trump has multiplied the victorious messages. Already on the night of November 3-4, the current President of the United States claimed victory in several key states, where the votes were not yet counted. “Our goal now is to ensure the integrity of the ballot. We want the law to be properly applied, we are going to go to the Supreme Court (…) We are going to win and, from what I think, we have already won, “he said. On Twitter, his favorite social network, he then got carried away.
In several messages, Donald Trump accused his Democratic opponents, and Joe Biden, of “stealing the election”: “We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the polls close!” Quickly, Twitter moderated his remarks by adding an alert message. “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and likely to be misleading about how to participate in an election or other civic process,” the social network wrote on the president’s tweet. In an astonishing speech, the husband of Melania Trump has outright threatened to seize the Supreme Court. “Nothing is going to stop us, it’s a fraud, it’s a shame. We were ready to win this election, he said. We are going to turn to the Supreme Court of the United States, we wish that all settlements are stopped. ” And this Wednesday, November 5, pending full results, Donald Trump has multiplied tweets full of innuendo.

“Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key states, in almost all of the Democrat-ruled and controlled ones, Potus wrote. Then, one by one, they began to magically disappear as the ballots surprise votes were counted. VERY STRANGE. ” Heavy accusations to which Joe Biden quickly responded: “We will not give ourselves any respite until every ballot is counted”. And while the results are still awaited in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, Donald Trump added a layer: “They find Biden votes everywhere (…) So bad for our country!”. Facebook and Twitter again warned Wednesday against messages from Donald Trump, deemed “misleading”. This Wednesday, November 5 at 7 p.m., Joe Biden leads by a short head against Donald Trump with 238 voters against 213.
