Schumer calls on Trump, GOP, to curb his ‘temper tantrum’ over election results

WASHINGTON – Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday slammed President Donald Trump and Republicans for refusing to accept the results of the presidential election and being skeptical.

“The election is not in doubt,” Schumer said at a joint news conference with Pelosi on Capitol Hill. It is nothing more than a temper tantrum by Republicans, nothing more than a pathetic political spectacle for an audience of one: President Donald John Trump. . “

Schumer said the results of the 2020 presidential election cannot be compared to the 2000 election, which came to Florida and had a margin of several hundred votes.

Joe Biden’s victory at the Electoral College has been won by several states, where tens of thousands of votes separate candidates, “he said.” 20,000 to Joe Biden Wisconsin, 50,000 to Pennsylvania, Michigan to … 146,000. this is fact. Biden won. Nothing Republican or Trump can change.

Republicans need to “deliberately and recklessly stop sowing about our democratic process” and reject the reality and accept that Biden is president-elect, Schumer said. The New York Democrat said Trump’s “trivial lawsuits have less than a snowball’s chance of succeeding.”

Both he and Pelosi pleaded with Republicans to return to the negotiating table to prepare another Kovid-19 relief package. Pelosi said Republicans need to divert attention from Biden’s denial of victory and shift their focus toward a worsening epidemic.

“He’s going to be just fine in transition,” the California Democrat said of Biden. “It is most unfortunate that Republicans have decided that they will not respect the will of the people. And let me just say, it looks like the house is burning, and they just refuse to throw water on it.”

This comes as Trump rejects the results of the election, which was called for Saturday when Biden surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win. The President has not accepted and baselessly claimed that voter fraud occurred.
