The fact that votes are having their initial count up to 9 days after election day just demonstrates how ludicrous the system is. All states should follow the same model.

The irony of seeing U.S. Donald Trump cut off by major media networks Thursday as he launched unsubstantiated claims lambasting the U.S. electoral system 

How misleading a sentence can you write? He is cut off by media networks because of their political bias which they have demonstrated for 4 years now. And the claims are "unsubstantiate" because the said networks refuse to report on them, And he is lambasting the abuse of the system, not the system.

What we are seeing here is really the power of the media.... they are pulling off a coup detat in plain view.

The claims above are not in possession of the slightest evidence of wrong-doing. AND... Even if they had said evidence, the amounts in question are not material.

Your boy lost.

Condolences.

Africa won't have to worry about Trump for much longer.

Even if Biden wins the election he will be stuck with only having executive orders, There is no way a republican Senate will let any of his policies pass.

How would you see evidence of wrong-doing if the mainstream media refuse to show it to you?

When did Africa worry about Trump?

Zaphod,

They don't show it because it doesn't exist.

Condolences.

Doe the evidence exist and where can we see it?

Hyper-mainstream Fox can't even show it to you, because they don't have it, and they are the mainstreamest of all the mainstream. They are basically just going around in circles complaining about how their rivals won't allow Trump to not produce evidence. Poor Tucker's head sounds like it's about to implode with frustration, it's an absolute joy to watch.

The Germans have a word for this.....

It means to take pleasure in the suffering of others.

How can they do that with credible evidence that's presented in court? If there ever is any?

It's the Republicans you have to thank for that.

All states should follow the same model.

Agreed. They should all dump the winner take all system for Electoral College votes, for instance.

Being called a sh*thole by an obese kleptocrat was a tad rich, n'est-ce pas?

All I wish for is consistency. If Trump demands for vote counts to stop, it should be in ALL places. If he want it to continue, it should be EVERYWHERE; not just in the states he is behind. Then again, he has no right to demand a stop to democracy. It is sad, insulting, and wrong. His claims of fraud is wrong and make us look weak.

In any case, if Biden and Democrats were able to orchestrate such a covert operation to manipulate the votes in order for only Trump to suffer, while allowing the GOP to make a few gains in the House (yet still controlling it), and causing drama in Georgia to cause not one, but two runoffs for Senate seats, then I would say that Biden is just the right president to lead our military. Imagine a president who can operate and lead with such precision. Being able to control and lead millions of people to work together is definitely a strength in a good leader.

One thing you have to take into account is the nearly 3 million potential voters who live OUTSIDE of the US. If their ballot is postmarked by election day, it may take a week to 10 days for it to be delivered.

Hence the delay.

Kenyan cartoonist Patrick Gathara tweeted that Trump “has barricaded himself inside the presidential palace vowing not to leave unless he is declared the winner,” with a mediator “currently trying to coax him out with promises of fast food.”

It would be funny if not for the fact that we might actually see this situation in January.

The thing is, 5.5 million British people live overseas, and many of them vote each election (some cannot thanks to Theresa May's 15-year cut-off limit). All of these votes are counted in time. British armed forces also vote from around the globe and there's never an issue.

Trump cannot issue such a demand or have it obeyed in a democracy. The powers to carry out such orders are the powers of despots and dictators.

You and the rest of the Trump supporters would be providing links to the evidence if it existed. You seem to depend way too much on television for you information.

If there were any evidence we’d have seen it. There isn’t. This is just the standard gas-lighting that has become the hallmark of this presidency and Trump party. It’s a ploy to delegitimize the election so they can overturn the results some other way if needs be; throw out valid votes, get the PA Republican legislature to override the people’s vote and select electors for Trump.

All the so-called cases of fraud they come up with have been quickly and easily debunked.

To be clear - ZERO EVIDENCE OF FRAUD in the vote count

What we're seeing in comments like these is the power of the anti-media, all those twitter accounts and bloggers and conspiracy theories (and one President). You don't have to think, you don't have to analyze, all you have to do is see your paranoias and your prejudices confirmed and wham! No supporting evidence needed, you got an opinion nobody can argue with.

In Trump's world, if he wins, then it must be legitimate, and if he loses, it must be fraud. He said it in 2016 and he's saying it again. Is that what you're saying Donald? Are you saying that 2016 was legal, but now it's not? Is that what your father taught you when you were a child? If you won a game, it was legal, but if the other kid won, they cheated? True definition of being a poor sport. Something you should never teach your kids to be.

America's reputation, or what was left of it, is going down the drain worldwide. Even Maduro looks good. The question is, do Trump supporters care? My guess is no.
