Trump, Biden Locked in Tight Contest for the US Presidency

By Ken Bredemeier | VOA News |

Philadelphia election workers process mail-in and absentee ballots for the general election, Nov. 3, 2020, in Philadelphia.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden were locked in a tight contest for a four-year term in the White House early Wednesday, with the national outcome of the election hanging on undecided contests in key political battleground states.

“Keep the faith guys, we’re going to win this,” Biden told cheering supporters near his home in Wilmington, Delaware, as they honked car horns.

But as vote counting continued in several key states where he trailed Trump, Biden warned, “We’re going to have to be patient.”

From the White House, Trump tweeted, “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election.”  Twitter flagged the post as containing information that is “disputed and might be misleading.”

There were no reports of voting after polls had closed as scheduled, but vote counting extended into the early hours of Wednesday.
