Joe Biden confident of victory, says 'nothing can silence America'
Washington : The US Election has become tense with neck to neck fight between Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Republican candidate Donald Trump, however the former is confident of victory and the latter has demanded SC's involvement in the counting of votes.
Joe Biden addressed his supporters on Wednesday and expressed confidence of winning the presidency once all votes are counted.
As Biden inched closer towards victory, Trump has sought a recounting of votes in Wisconsin, which has 10 electoral college votes. Earlier, Trump called the election "a fraud on the American public" and said, "Frankly, we did win this election." "All of a sudden everything just stopped."
"After a long night of counting, it's clear that we're winning enough states to reach 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency," Biden said in his hometown of Delaware.
"I'm not here to declare that we won. But I am here to report, when the count is finished, we believe we will be the winners," Biden added.
While Mr Trump was anguished and demanded recounting of votes, Mr Biden was seen calm and composed as he said, every vote must be counted first.
"In Michigan, we lead by over 35,000 votes and it's growing -- a substantially bigger margin than President Trump won Michigan in 2016," he said.
Biden expressed hope that Democrats will win in Pennsylvania too. It is to be noted that Trump is currently leading in Pennsylvania, which is a key swing state.
