According to several US authorities, there were no irregularities in the US presidential election. Ballot papers were neither deleted nor lost, according to a joint statement issued by various security authorities yesterday by the US Cyber Security Agency. There is no evidence that the November 3 election was rigged in any way.
Twitter announced that around 300,000 tweets around the U.S. presidential election had been posted with warnings about controversial or misleading content. In 456 cases, these posts were also completely covered by a warning so that users had to click through first.
Spokeswoman: Trump still believes in election victory
Despite the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the U.S. presidential election, incumbent Donald Trump still does not give up hope of remaining in the White House. “Of course he believes he still has a chance,” Kayleigh McEnany, speaking on behalf of both the White House and Trump’s campaign team, told Fox News last night (local time). Trump sees himself as a victim of massive election fraud. His attorneys have filed lawsuits in several states, but have not provided evidence of large-scale voter fraud or errors.
Biden has already secured more than the 270 voters needed to win the election, although not even all states have declared the winner. According to preliminary results, more than 77.8 million voters have voted for him, about 5.3 million more than for Trump.
Obama: Republicans on “dangerous path“
Ex-US President Barack Obama made serious accusations against Republicans who, despite his election defeat, continue to hold on to the office of Donald Trump. More than Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud, he was concerned about the fact that other Republicans were going along with it against their better judgment, Obama said: “It is another step to deny the legitimacy not only of the new Biden administration but of democracy as a whole. And that is a dangerous path.”
Next week, the first part of Obama’s memoirs on his time in the White House will be published. The 768-page book “A Promised Land” is, according to initial advance reports in the American media, largely a criticism of developments in US politics since 2008.
