Trump Warns Biden: Don’t You Dare Declare Victory

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday warned Democratic nominee Joe Biden against “wrongfully” claiming to be president elect, as the former vice president appeared on the cusp of winning the race for the White House.

“Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning!” Trump tweeted Friday evening, hours before Biden was expected to deliver remarks.

Trump himself claimed premature victory in an address from the White House early Wednesday morning. He is expected to mount a legal effort to challenge results in several states. Lawsuits filed by his campaign in Michigan and Georgia over ballot counting have already been tossed out.
