Trump still REFUSES to accept Joe Biden won the election and vows to keep challenging ‘illegal’ votes in the courts – despite offering no hard evidence

President Donald Trump defiantly refused to concede the president election to Joe Biden on Saturday, claiming the election is not over and saying his campaign would unleash a new round of lawsuits on Monday.

He charged the media with working the Biden campaign to declare a victory. Multiple news organizations called Pennsylvania as going for Biden, handing him the more than 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House.

‘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. The simple fact is this election is far from over,’ President Trump said in a statement released by his campaign.

The president was on his golf course in Sterling, Virginia, when the presidential election was called for his Democratic rival.

Trump argued several states would have recounts of their ballots. Georgia officials said there would be one there and the Trump campaign has requested one in Wisconsin. The campaign could also request one in other states with close contests, including Arizona.

‘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,’ Trump said.
