(US election) Georgia, United States of America: The state of Georgia officially declares president-elect Joe Biden as the US presidential election winner. According to a press release from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday, Joe Biden has won the state, even after the requested recounts by the Trump campaign.

“We have now counted legally cast ballots three times, and the results remain unchanged,” Mr Raffensperger said at a news conference from Atlanta on Monday.

Safe harbour day

Georgia’s announcement comes before the deadline for Congress to present its official seal of approval to results. These results are already certified by each state.

The date, referred to as Safe Harbor Day, effectively makes it much harder for members of congress to later challenge the results submitted by each state.’

Legal actions

Although the Trump campaign’s lawyer Sidney Powell has filed 2 lawsuits on the 25th of November, they have lost in plenty of cases trying to overturn the election results in Trump’s favour.

U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Detroit and U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten rules that the lawsuits were too late and lacks legal standings to proceed.

“The people have spoken,” Parker wrote, citing the election results.

Trump’s harsh battle

Trump, who has falsely claimed that he won the election, have waged an futile battle to undertake the election results. Arizona, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Wisconsin are some of the states that have judges rejecting their cases.
Many people agree that not only is Trump of trying to harm public confidence in the integrity of U.S. elections, he is also undermining American democracy.
Unfortunately, President Trump continues to refuse to accept defeat in the vote, alleging, without evidence, there has been widespread fraud. Even to this date he still continues.
