US election is coming to an end in the United States, where the long streak of vote counting is underway, with uncertainties over postal voting, especially in Pennsylvania. Many states have already delivered their verdicts and a scenario both similar to that of 2016 and totally uncertain is emerging. Joe Biden arguably succeeded in conquering Arizona, an important take after several failures in key states, Republican strongholds considered accessible to Democrats. Florida, Ohio, and Texas remain Republicans, Pennsylvania and Georgia seem for the moment to be more in favor of Donald Trump. But nothing is over yet, the suspense could last.
Donald Trump spoke live from the White House shortly before 8:30 a.m. KST. he explained, then assured the outgoing president before multiplying the tackles and evoking “a fraud against the nation “:” We don’t want them to find bulletins at 4 am “. The Republican candidate raised the possibility of going to the Supreme Court. We want the law to be properly enforced. We are going to win and, from what I think, we have already won.”
Joe Biden had beaten him shortly before 7 a.m. French time this morning. Saying confident in the outcome of the ballot, he felt he was still in the race in Georgia and even said: “We are going to win Pennsylvania”. Donald Trump immediately replied on Twitter: “We are great, but they are trying to steal the election from us. We will never let them.” Following Donald Trump’s speech, Joe Biden’s campaign team reacted with comments echoed by CNN, citing “outrageous, unprecedented and incorrect remarks”.

10:04 – Update on US election results
It is 10 am at home in France while the United States is plunged into the night, the opportunity for us to take stock of the results. For the time being, no candidate has been officially elected even if Donald Trump in an offensive speech proclaimed his victory by threatening to appeal already through the Supreme Court. If the outgoing president won Texas, Florida, or even Ohio, Joe Biden succeeded in tipping Arizona on his side and the election will probably be played in 3 Swing States, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. If we focus on the projections of ABC in particular, Donald Trump is currently in the lead in these states but the count could take several days, as, for example, on the side of Philadelphia.
