Donald Trump, the President of the United States, staged a potentially and corrosive risky attempt at undermining the Unites States 2020 election on Thursday, falsely claiming the presidency of the country stolen from underneath him as poll counts disclosed his way to victory disappearing.
The U.S. President repeated false claims while standing at the White House podium that a count of legally cast votes would show him winning against Joe Biden, the former Vice President. Moreover, he complained that he had been winning on election night in some specific states, but now counts have been whittled down or shown his opponent leading.

Using the briefing room to proclaim baseless claims, Trump deprived a second term by fraud; he thrust into interrogate the democratic belief of a peaceful transition of power should the former vice president win. However, he suggested he would fight against rigging in the courts until the election decided in his favor.
Trump baselessly claims that this is a case where they are trying to steal the 2020 election, they are trying to rig the presidential election, and he cannot allow it to happen. Though predicted by the president for months, the scene was still a sign of the unwillingness of Trump to surrender the White House without a lengthy fight.
Trump criticized the use of mail-in ballots for the last six months
Donald Trump’s message came as new counts show his lead declining in Pennsylvania and Georgia, where mail-in votes still to count. The president spent the last six months criticizing the use of mail-in votes, a strategy even some Republicans feared might overturn his own totals. Whereas he retains a way to 270 electoral votes, it grew smaller by the hour.
Since his Wednesday middle-of-night speech, the journalist didn’t see Trump in public when he misleadingly declared his victory. Aides said that the public appearance of Biden on Wednesday and Thursday – during which he called for calm and patience until the counting of votes – insisted Trump to push harder to do the same, though some expected to avoid the type of speech Trump finally delivered.
Despite advisers confidentially acknowledged, the math simply was not on their side and was making them ready for a loss. Moreover, others privately acknowledged the possibilities of the president winning are now less and were anticipating their next career steps.
