December 13th, Al Gore, former vice president and former Democratic presidential candidate, said in an interview with CNN, “I hope that those who still support Trump can put national interests first.
Now we must abandon hatred.” Asked what he regretted about admitting defeat 20 years ago, Gore stressed, “No, I don’t regret it.”
In the 2000 presidential election, Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush competed with Democratic presidential candidate Gore. Gore led George W. Bush by 246 votes with 267 electoral votes.
Florida, which has not yet announced the election results, became the decisive state. Due to the dispute between the two over the Florida ballot, the case was finally appealed to the Supreme Court. On December 12, 2000, after the Supreme Court ruled that George W. Bush was elected President of the United States, Gore subsequently admitted the defeat.
After 20 years, Gore responded to the defeat that year, “I have no regrets. Winston Churchill once said that Americans usually choose to do the right thing after trying all the feasible solutions.
There is no other option after the Supreme Court makes a final decision.”
According to federal law, the U.S. Electoral College will complete the voting on the first Monday after the second Wednesday of December.
On December 14, local time, 538 voters will cast their own electoral votes to formally elect the President and Vice President of the United States according to the results of the state election.
Previously, according to several American media reports, Democratic presidential candidate Biden is expected to win 306 electoral votes in the 2020 U.S. presidential election and is expected to officially enter the White House in January 2021.
As the Electoral College is about to complete the vote, Gore said, “I hope that the results of the Electoral College vote will make Trump supporters look forward, and hope that they can put the national interests first.
Now we must abandon hatred.”
On December 13th, local time, Trump tweeted, “This is the most corrupt election in American history.” Earlier, in an interview with Fox News, Trump mentioned that the Supreme Court rejected the Texas lawsuit and said that “it’s not over yet.
We will continue to move forward”.
