On Monday, Joe Biden, the United States President-elect, had said it was time for outgoing President Donald Trump to concede defeat.
Joe Biden, while addressing the nation shortly after the Electoral College confirmed his victory in the Nov. 3 general polls, he said the “will of the people prevailed.”
He said Donald Trump’s refusal to accept defeat after his several lawsuits failed up to the Supreme Court was an “unprecedented assault on our democracy.”
According to Biden, “The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago, and we now know that nothing, not even a pandemic or an abuse of power, can extinguish that flame.
“This is the biggest voter turnout in the history of the United States of America.
“The number is so significant that this election now ranks the most explicit demonstration of the valid will of the American people.
“Together, Vice President-elect Harris and I earned 306 electoral votes, well exceeding the 270 electoral votes needed to secure victory.
“Three hundred and six electoral votes are the same number of electoral votes than Donald Trump and Vice President Pence received when they won in 2016.”
“At the time, President Trump called the electoral college a landslide. And I respectfully suggest he does so now,” the president-elect said.
Recall that Joe Biden, the President-elect won the November US election with 306 electoral votes against the incumbent President, Trump’s 232.
