In a speech announced at short notice, Joe Biden expressed optimism that he would emerge as the winner of the US presidential election. “I have a good feeling,” he said and appealed to his supporters to continue to believe in victory. He prepared them for the fact that the counting would take even longer.
Biden’s statement was apparently intended to pre-empt Donald Trump’s unproven accusations of election fraud. Trump accused Biden immediately after his brief speech of trying to “steal the election”. This promptly earned Trump a warning from Twitter.
Biden reacted directly and stressed that it was neither up to him nor Trump to determine the winner of the election. That was the task of the voters, he said.
