Washington, November 16
President Donald Trump has accused the mainstream American media of taking sides and not reflecting on his side of the story, asking as to why does the “Fake News Media” continuously assume that President-elect Joe Biden will ascend to the presidency next January.
Last week, the mainstream media declared Democratic presidential candidate Biden as the winner of the November 3 presidential election and said Trump has lost.
President Trump, however, has refused to concede the election, asserting that he has won. He has filed several lawsuits alleging massive electoral fraud.
Media and state officials have said they do not have any evidence of large-scale voter fraud. Trump, meanwhile, accused the media of supporting Biden during the election campaign.
“Why does the Fake News Media continuously assume that Joe Biden will ascend to the presidency, not even allowing our side to show, which we are just getting ready to do, how badly shattered and violated our great Constitution has been in the 2020 election,” Trump asked in a tweet. “It was attacked perhaps like never before! The World is watching!” Trump said. Earlier in the day, Trump said many of the court cases being filed all over the country are not his, but rather those of people that have seen horrible abuses. — PTI
Will keep challenging outcome

Politicians, voters divided
- Former US president Barack Obama has said not just politicians, even voters are divided now as the priority is to “beat the other guy” rather than discussing issues, facts and policies.
- “I think Democratic and Republican voters have become much more partisan,” he said.
