McConnell said during a press conference: “What is being said about America is that, until the election of the electoral college, anyone running for office can raise census concerns in a court of reasonable jurisdiction. It’s not uncommon, shouldn’t be alarming. At some point we will finally find out who is certified in each of the states and the electoral college will determine the winner, and that person will be sworn in on January 20th. No need to worry. “
The delusional game Republicans are playing to undermine democracy and the election results with the American people is not and will not work. Trump has lost, and while Trump is appeased by the bitter ending, he will continue to find favor with his supporters, but the reality is that this election is over.
The country has seen this Mitch McConnell game before. He tries to delegitimize Joe Biden before the elected president takes office.
Trump will continue to lose his legal challenges, and it will all end in the same place on January 20, 2021. Donald Trump leaves the White House as Joe Biden becomes the next President of the United States.
