US election update: Biden urges supporters to keep faith up, says he’s going to win
Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has urged his teeming supporters not to lose faith of winning the presidential election whose results are being collated across the country.
Biden made the remarks to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters at a drive-in gathering outside the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. He has been watching election results with his family in Wilmington as votes continue to be tallied across the nation.
“We knew this was going to go long,” Biden said, acknowledging that the race will be dragging into Wednesday. “We feel good about where we are. We really do.”
The Democratic candidate said that he felt confident about winning Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, arguing that “it ain’t over until every vote is counted, until every ballot is counted.”
“I’m here to tell you tonight we believe we’re on track to win this election,” Biden said. “I’m optimistic about this outcome.”
However, the US incumbent president and candidate of the Republican Party, Donald Trump has addressed the nation early on Wednesday morning where he declared victory against Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“You just look at all of these states that we’ve won tonight, and then you take a look at the kind of margins that we’ve won them by,” Trump told supporters at the White House. “This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election, frankly, we did win this election.”
Trump is currently trailing Biden 225-213 as the candidates seek to accrue at least 270 Electoral College delegates.
