President Donald Trump has vowed to hold a big and wild protest in Washington DC on January 6.
Refusing to give up on his fight to overturn the election results, Trump has promised action as he announced a “wild” rally in Washington D.C. on the day Congress is set to accept the election results cast in the Electoral College.
“Peter Navarro release 36-page report alleging election fraud ‘more than sufficient’ to swing victory to Trump. A great report by Peter,” the president wrote in a Sunday tweet.
“Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”
In his tweet, Trump also shared a link to Peter Navarro’s groundless report in which he claimed fraud was sufficient to change the outcome of the election despite failing to provide any concrete evidence to back his claims.
Trump’s fight against the election results continues even after Biden’s win has been recognized in the Electoral College where state electors cast votes in the Democrat’s favor. The results are now set to be approved by Congress on January 6.
Following the Electoral College vote, Joe Biden addressed the nation and slammed Trump for his refusal to accept the results.
“Respecting the will of the people is at the heart of our democracy, even if we find those results hard to accept,” the president-elect said.
“(…) The Trump campaign brought dozens and dozens of legal challenges, they were heard again and again. And each of the times they were heard they were found to be without merit.”
Biden also went on to applaud state officials and election workers for withstanding political pressure and threats and continuing to commit themselves to a “free and fair” election.
“It was truly remarkable because so many of these patriotic Americans were subjected to so much: enormous political pressure, verbal abuse, and even threats of physical violence.
While we all wish that our fellow Americans in these positions will always show such courage and commitment to free and fair elections, I hope we never again see anyone subjected to the kind of threats and abuse we saw in this election.It is unconscionable,” he said.
Referring to the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the Texas lawsuit that aimed to overturn election results in four battleground states, Biden added: “The Court sent a clear signal to President Trump and his allies that they would be no part of this unprecedented assault on our democracy.”
As Biden went on to say, Trump’s concerns were heard on plenty of occasions and were always “found to be without merit.”
“In America, when questions are raised about the legitimacy of any election, those questions are resolved through a legal process.
And that is precisely what happened here.The Trump campaign brought dozens and dozens and dozens of legal challenges to test the results. They were heard. And they were found to be without merit,” the president-elect said.
“Time and again, President Trump’s lawyers presented their arguments to state officials, state legislatures, state and federal courts, and ultimately to the United States Supreme Court, twice. They were heard by more than 80 judges across the country. And in every case, no cause or evidence was found to reverse or question or dispute the results.”
In his speech, Biden encouraged Americans that it is now “time to turn the page” and work together to “unite” and “heal.”
