Trump Refuses To Accept The Defeat
On Saturday morning in the United States, Joe Biden defeated the President and the Republican leader Donald Trump in an election that seemed a close fight. The counting is yet to close but Joe Biden has crossed the majority mark of 270 thereby all set to become the 46th president of the United States. The leading media houses like the CNN and FOX news called the election and projected Biden to win early in the morning. The 77-year-old leader was the former Vice President of the United States under the leadership of Barack Obama.
President Donald Trump, on the other hand, has been calling the election rigged. He even announced himself to be the winner of the election. He has even challenged the process in several courts of the country. Trump supporters were seen outside the counting booths calling for a stop of the counts.
