Joe Biden and Kamala Harris put Donald Trump and Mike Pence on the crossroad

 

Kamala Harris and Joe Biden election

Addressing journalists a few hours after midnight at the White House, Donald Trump had lamented upon his opponent, Joe Biden, saying that "all voting must stop" and accusing without evidence to the Democrats of fraud.


He proceeded to hit his thoughts on Twitter, leading the social media platform to label various tweets as "disputed" or "misleading."



Dramatic debates and a violent campaign had already defaced the status of the US democratic system overseas this year, but the sight of the American leader honestly seeking to delegitimize the vote was still a shock for many.



Trump's remarks were addressed with fear in many countries, and some joviality in others, where authorities of the US have long blamed Washington of deception concerning democratic rights.


Speaking Wednesday, German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp Karrenbauer said the US faced a "very explosive situation" and a potential crisis "this election has not been decided ... votes are still being counted (but) the battle over the legitimacy of the result, however it turns out, has begun."


In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson declined to talk on the election, though former foreign minister and Conservative Party lawmaker Jeremy Hunt told the BBC a "huge argument about the process" would "put a smile on the face of people like President Putin and President Xi who will look at their people and say, 'Are you not pleased we have not got any of this mess?' and that would be an absolute disaster."


"We must remember that the reputation of democracy across the world is at stake here," Hunt added.
