Washington: Soon after Joe Biden’s victory in the tight race in the US Presidential polls on Saturday, Donald Trump refuted the verdict saying he will prove in court that he was the winner.
“The simple fact is this election is far from over,” Trump said in a statement.
“Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media,” he added.
However, experts say that Trump has a slight chance of reversing Biden’s win, without any evidence of widespread vote fraud needed to overturn results in several states.
“Trump’s litigation strategy is going nowhere. It is not going to make a difference to the election outcome,” said Richard Hasen, an election law expert at the University of California, Irvine, as quoted by The Print.
Trump’s team will move court on Monday to “ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”
He also alleged fraud in Pennsylvania and said thousands of late-arriving mail-in ballots were illegally counted there.
“Networks don’t get to decide elections. Courts do. Courts set aside elections when they are illegal,” Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani declared on Saturday, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s largest city.
