US election!! Biden will be the next President, Obama tells Donald Trump

Formal US President, Barack Obama has said that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States of America not minding the shenanigans of President Donald Trump. He made this public during an interview on CBS Sunday Morning’s Gayle King show. He said, “Look, Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States; Kamala Harris will be the next vice president,” he said. Obama said early hours after Trump took to Twitter to announce that he’s going to challenge the election result with big suits. In a previous interview, Obama shammed the Republican party for tagging along with Trump in casting aspersions on Biden and democracy. “They appear to be motivated, in part, because the president doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss,” he said. “I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humouring him in this fashion. “It is one more step in delegitimising not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.”

Breaking!!: Donald Trump Declares Himself Winner Of US Election 2020

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has declared himself the winner of the US Election 2020. Remember that former United States Vice President, Joe Biden and his Democratic Party running mate, were projected winners of the November 3 US election on 10 November, a projection that didn’t go well with Trump. In a continuation of his regular Twitter criticism since Sunday, when he first admitted that Joe Biden was the winner of the election, then with time, he claimed to have won the election because the election was rigged, Trump later tweeted that he was not going to surrender as he planned to file ‘big cases’ soon. The United States President continued the theme of election fraud and rigging in three other tweets in Monday Twitter rant which was flagged by Twitter as ‘disputed claims’. Trump tweeted: “Why does the Fake News Media continuously assume that Joe Biden will ascend to the Presidency, not even allowing our side to show, which we are just getting ready to do, how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 Election. It was attacked, perhaps like never before! From large numbers of Poll Watchers that were thrown out of vote counting rooms in many of our States, to millions of ballots that have been altered by Democrats, only for Democrats, to voting after the Election was over, to using Radical Left owned Dominion Voting Systems, turned down by Texas and many others because it was not good or secure, those responsible for the safeguarding of our Constitution cannot allow the Fake results of the 2020 Mail-In Election to stand. The World is watching!”

US president elect Joe Biden calls Donald Trump’s failure to concede an embarrassment  that will not help his legacy!!

US President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday , November 10, called President Donald Trump’s failure to concede defeat in the 2020 presidential election “an embarrassment. Biden was speaking to reporters in Wilmington, Delaware, about Affordable Care Act when he asked for his thoughts about how some Americans feel over the president’s refusal to publicly concede defeat, Biden said, “I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly.” “How can I say this tactfully? I think it will not help the president’s legacy.” “I think that — I know from my discussions with foreign leaders, thus far, that they are hopeful that the United States’ democratic institutions are viewed once again as being strong and enduring,” Biden said. “And — but I think at the end of the day, you know, it’s all going to come to fruition on January 20th. And between now and then, I hope an expectation is that the American people are — do know and do understand that there has been a transition, even among Republicans who are people who voted for the president,” he continued. “I understand the sense of loss. I get that, but I think the majority of the people who voted for the president, a lot voted for him, a significantly smaller number, but a lot voted for him. I think they understand that we have to come together. I think they’re ready to unite, and I believe we can pull the country out of this bitter politics that we’ve seen for the last — last five, six, seven, years,” Biden said, reverting to his call for unity. It was the first time Biden has taken reporter questions as president-elect and it comes after the Trump administration blocked the Biden administration from accessing appropriated funds, among other resources for Joe Biden to proceed with his transition. Asked about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggesting that he may not recognize the outcome of the election until the Electoral College meets next month, Biden said it[…]

He Only Wanted Fame & Glory For Himself – Nigerians Drag Pst. Taribo West Over Failed Prophesy

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to mock a former Super Eagles defender who turned a pastor, Taribo West, who recently declared a prophesy that the United States President, Donald Trump, would defeat Joe Biden by a slim margin. He had bragged that he made the earlier declarations about the Edo and Ondo state elections, and it came to pass. He frequently prophesied that Trump would defeat Biden by a slim margin and asked his supporters to ensure that his prophecy goes viral. The ex-football star said, “Before the election in Edo, I said Obaseki would win. Is that true? Did he win? Nobody said it anywhere. Nobody quoted me anywhere. I also said in the Ondo election that Akeredolu would win. Is that true? Did he win? He won. “Now, I want you to put this out the way I want it. Donald Trump will win the election by a slight split edge over Joe Biden. So, quote me and I want it to be out before time.” After the votes were counted, Trump lost the election to Biden, although the result is now being challenged in Supreme court by Trump. See some reactions on social media from people concerning the prophecy below: @M4micheal tweeted, “He predicted and made it look like God was speaking through him. If Trump had won, his prediction would’ve been right and he would’ve told his congregation that God did it, but God isn’t an author of confusion.” @infonaija_247, “No, this cannot be Pastor Taribo West, former Super Eagles of Nigeria no-nonsense defender. This must be Taribo North.” “The quest for fame and cheap popularity will make men pride in themselves,” tweeted @amablacknaija. @mykkel3, “One thing I know about this wrong prophecy was that he wanted to glorify himself after the first two corrected ones, that was why he needed a camera to put it on social media…He forgot that he is not God.”

Trump Vs Biden: US Attorney General takes action,issue fresh orders over fraud claims.

US Attorney General, William Barr has authorized the Justice Department (DOJ) to look into the claims of voting irregularities made by incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. The Attorney General made the authorization in a memo he signed on Monday and addressed to U.S. Attorneys; the assistant attorneys general for the DOJ’s criminal division; civil rights division; the national security division; and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray. “Now that the voting has concluded, it is imperative that the American people can trust that our elections were conducted in such a way that the outcomes accurately reflect the will of the voters,” the memo read. The memo comes after 39 House Republicans sent a letter to the Attorney General pressing him to allow available DOJ resources to look into allegations of voting irregularities across the country in several key states. The President Donald Trump campaign has filed a number of lawsuits in some of those states where the incumbent believes he had won “massively.” The Attorney General noted that although states are primarily responsible for the conduct and supervision of elections, the DOJ has “an obligation to ensure that federal elections are conducted in such a way that the American people can have full confidence in their electoral process and their government.” He said concerns that overt actions taken by the DOJ in this case are greatly minimized, since the voting has concluded. He also said he has already authorized the DOJ to pursue substantial allegations of voting and voting tabulation irregularities in specific instances. “Given this, and given that voting in our current elections has now concluded, I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances,” he said. He said inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if[…]

US election: Protesting Trump supporters reject Biden’s victory

As some streets of many American cities danced in joy Saturday at the news of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election, Donald Trump supporters refused to accept the result, alleging fraud and conspiracy. In some cities like Phoenix, Philadelphia and Atlanta, the outgoing president’s loyalists gathered under the slogan of #StopTheSteal, repeating Trump’s unfounded allegations that Biden’s win was based on cheating. These particular group of supporters wore red Trump hats, held signs reading “Stop The Steal” and waved American flags or Trump banners bearing the slogan: “Keep America Great.” “I think they’re way too early,” said Donna McCollum, a retired 77-year-old who said she can trace her family history back to the American revolution. “The electoral college is the one to decide. And that has not been decided just yet. And there’s a lot of fraud here. It needs to be either redone totally or recounted.” She added: “Look at these people out here. There’s no way Biden won Arizona.” “This is ground zero for cheating in this election. I thought it was important to be here,” said Steve Padgett, a 57-year-old who works in sales. Sophia Rotunno, a 52-year-old administrative worker, said: “I have faith that our President Donald Trump did win a fair election.” “But the Democrats are not allowing a fair election to be had,” she said, falsely. “So I feel it has to go to the courts.” “There’s too much smoke and some fire in a lot of places,” said Huff Croxton, a 51-year-old who wore an American flag as a cape, referring to groundless allegations of electoral fraud. “I want to see all this settled out and let’s see at the end who wins. And if Biden wins fair and square, then I’ll jump on board with the media.” In Phoenix, Shannon Morris, a 51-year-old trauma recovery life coach, said she would “fight” for Trump, but in a “peaceful way.” I think that Trump fought for our country, and I’m going to fight[…]

He noted that the victory is a significant reminder that democracy is the best form of government.

I am thrilled by the fact that you are an experienced politician who had served as Congressman for 40 years and a Vice President for eight years. This is a remarkable track record that gives us hope that you will add value to the presidency and world affairs.” The President said he looks forward to enhanced cooperation between Nigeria and the United States at economic, diplomatic and political levels, including especially on the war against terrorism.
