[Global Network Comprehensive Report] CNN and the Guardian just reported that at about 19:30 local time on the 14th, after the Electoral College confirmed that Biden had officially won the presidential election, U.S. President-elect Biden delivered a speech in Wilmington, Delaware.
In his speech, Biden reportedly mentioned the legal challenge that Trump team had raised about the election and praised the judicial system (in the United States). Biden said, “The Trump campaign has launched dozens of legal challenges.” He also mentioned that “every time I hear their voices, I find that [these voices] are worthless.”
Biden also named 17 Republican state attorneys general and 126 Republican Houses who signed lawsuits in Texas in an attempt to overturn election results in other states, the report said. “It’s an extreme position we’ve never seen before,” Biden said.
Biden also said, “It’s time to unite.” He added, “What is in front of us is emergency work.”
Biden mentioned that he and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris received more votes than any candidate in American history.
Before concluding, Biden expressed his condolences to those who lost their loved ones in the coronavirus pandemic.” Today, our country has crossed a grim milestone, with 300,000 deaths from COVID-19. My heart is with each of you in this darkest winter of the epidemic. Biden said.
CNN previously reported that the final result of the U.S. Electoral College’s vote on the 14th local time was that Biden received 306 votes and Trump got 232 votes. This year’s Electoral College vote did not show “distrustworthy voters”.
