In a normal election, the electoral college vote is just a formality, but after Trump falsely claimed the election was ‘rigged,’ all eyes were on the vote today. Biden comes out the clear winner and in a comment obviously aimed at Trump, the President-elect said ‘In America, politicians don’t take power — the people grant it to them.’
President-elect Joe Biden has received enough electoral votes to officially clinch the presidency, a major milestone that he reached when California’s electors awarded him the state’s 55 electoral votes at their meeting Monday in Sacramento.
While many hope this will end Trump’s whining, he’ll probably keep on maintaining he ‘won the election’ as he’s escorted from the White House.
Biden will address the nation Monday night and in released statements, will say it’s ‘time to turn the page’ on the election.
