Trump calls to halt vote counting, prematurely declares victory 1


President Donald Trump appeared in the East Room of the White House early on Wednesday morning to claim falsely that he had already beaten Democrat Joe Biden, and the election was being stolen from him in a massive act of fraud. He vowed to mount a challenge in the Supreme Court and declared that he had already won states that were still counting votes, including Georgia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
The election has not yet been won, and the President and the former vice president are still locked in a tight battle for the decisive states with millions of votes still being counted.
Trump's remarks essentially amounted to a demand for the legally cast votes of American citizens not to be recorded in a historic act of disenfranchisement. And they brought closer the potential constitutional nightmare that many have feared since Trump started to tarnish an election that he apparently worried he could lose months ago. His rhetorical broadside was also notable because it came at a moment of huge tension in a deeply divided nation — a time when a president, one whose political fate is in the process of being written — could be expected to call for calm.
Trump's comments were especially remarkable since it appears that the President has a good chance of winning outstanding states in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan, which could hand him a second term. And the implication of his authoritarian remarks was that the President wants vote counting to stop in those states but to go on in Arizona, where he trails Biden.

  1. Did the President of the most powerful country in the World just say he does not want the votes of his people to be counted? That´s strange. In my country the votes of people count. We call it Democracy.

  2. I want an election decided by votes not judges.

    • @Nikko Sands what???


    • @Keyser Soze Adrian Lopez is a BOT don’t bother trying to correct his out of this world dumb comments.

    • @Ender Bartnik Adrian Lopez has 1 video on his page and it says not allowed in this country. So either it’s a bot from some other country or he is not even in this country because he wouldn’t be able to upload a video not allowed in this country from this country.

      @Jeff Poulin I read what you wrote 3 times and don’t understand much about it. Also, that isn’t how a conservative normally talks. Trump is more conservative than Biden. I’m not a conservative. I used to be when I was in high school though.

  3. Pence subtly distanced himself from trumps statement – Pence said “on the road to … victory”. He doesn’t want to share a cell with trump.

    Enemy of the people wants to silence Americans. Count every vote!

  5. this is exactly what we said he was gonna do and they called us crazy for thinking it

    • @Bojourner Southern so I looked into that link and all it told me is that you guys are desperate to set this up to look like a hack job but it’s genuinely doubtful that any election tampering would be on the side if the guy that isn’t in office

    • @Ba Doai thanks for sharing this toight link playa

    • @Anthony Italiano You mean GOP or Trump? GOP is about as shady as the Democrats in history u are right about that. USPS just got caught manipulating ballots in Milwaukee, Federal agents and prosecutors are already taking steps to investigate. It’s not about Democrats vs Republicans it’s Anti-Trumpers vs Trumpers. Guess which side is Law&Order and safeguarding Democracy from corporate criminals. Hint? It’s the side all MSM is telling you is an orange evil.

    • @Hall Effekt you it about Russia and Ukraine.

    Now Trump wants to steal the election !! Disgusting!! … Donated 10 gold eagles to BLM for fun. RIP George Floyd. RIP America under Trump. Let the games begin

  9. The big fat orange baby is having one big tantrum

  10. Imagine threatening legal action over an unfinished election because you’re losing.

    • @Christopher Menendez Because they always vote blue moron. California has been a dem stronghold since the 90s.

    • Imagine Demos creating a horrible virus that kills hundreds of thousands of people so they can blame Trump, then promoting mail-in voting to rig the system and doing everything in their power to get this man out of office to destroy America, it is evil, disappointing and truly sad that the country has come to this, truly sad.

    • @cade stekly trump discouraged mail-in ballots to his minions and they went ahead and didn’t proceed with mail-in ballots but instead went In-person to cast their vote.

  11. This dude lives in his own world and he doesn’t care what people think! Lol 😂

  12. This president will go down as the worst of history. He declared himself a winner and doesn’t want the votes to be counted. Apparently this dude is a dictator instead of democratic leader.

    • @Jefe Anson where the heck do you get your information? Literally list your sources to have a sound argument bud

    • He told his supporters dont vote by mail vote in person. So they did and the votes were counted election day. Biden voters are being counted now. So Mr idiot there is no illegal votes. You got your votes. And mail ins are being counted. Thats how this country works. Every voice every vote should be counted

      @Jefe Anson and yet they asked for proof and no proof has come up yet I mean I’ll believe it when trump and his administration prove it as of right now I see a loser claiming false accusations so he has an excuse to why he lost.

      @DA- PROFEZOR Anson is an obvious troll.

    • @Angel Colantuono lol, there is video of the fuckers not allowing poll watcher’s into watch the ballot counts in dem districts haha, lol they are openly committing fraud when they were ordered by the court’s to open for the poll watcher’s. These stupid communists think they just have a right to openly defy election laws and procedures.

    Look at the crybaby pout just cuz things aren’t going his way. Typical Narcissistic behavior! 🤣

  14. Just count every ballot, even if it takes a month. Everyone deserves to be heard. Period.

    • And not the fraud votes, right 😉

    • Absolutely. Remember that many states have altered deadlines and/or loosened rules for submitting an absentee ballot. Some states have said mail-in ballots only need to be postmarked by Election Day, rather than received by then.

      And I think, like, millions of votes haven’t been counted yet.

      Covid changes everything. 🙂

  15. He loves that word fraud, he thinks everyone is a fraud because he is the king of fraud.

    • He calls everyone else a fraud because he knows it can take the heat away from him. Because, though many of us Americans can be very sweet, we can also be very, very gullible.

  16. If you stop counting votes, they don’t exist. Just like if you slow down the testing, coronavirus disappears. 👌🏽

  17. I can’t wait to use this line:
    “He is your president.”

    “Trump calls to halt vote counting, prematurely declares victory” re-affirming, yet again, that #DJT is “utterly incompetent” as per the words of both his own Federal Judge elder-sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his own Clinical Psychologist niece Dr. Mary Trump. May fellow American voters accordingly tell #ImPOTUS45 “You’re fired” via their mail-in ballots electing the exact opposite instead of more #MourningInAmerica

  19. he’s the only one who is an embarrassment to this country. He’s the first one committing fraud to this country by only paying 700 in taxis. Mr. Ex-president you should learn how to loose and stop crying like a baby your time is over..bye bye

  20. I hope the secret service drags this clown out kicking and screaming.
