Hi I’m Selwyn Manning and you are watching A View from Afar. As always, we are joined by political scientist and former Pentagon analyst… Paul Buchanan… and this week we will discuss:
- How voting counting continues in the United States with it being so very close but nudging favourably for Democrat candidate, Joe Biden.
- But incumbent, US President Donald Trump, has already claimed victory; that the reason why he trails in the electoral college vote is due to voter fraud; that he will ‘not allow them to steal this election’; that he will take this to the US Supreme Court.
- Overnight, Trump has filed a law suit to stop vote counting in Michigan.
- Meanwhile, the vote counting of votes continues. The totals in key tipping states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania should be more clear by Friday, US time (that’s Saturday here in New Zealand).
