While the outgoing president predicted his “great victory” in the US presidential election on Wednesday, his Democratic rival said on Wednesday that he was going to “win” this still extremely tight duel.

(ASdN with AFP) – Who will win the election? A few hours before the end of the vote, both candidates continue to believe in it. Although the outcome of several key states has not yet been announced, Donald Trump is already announcing “a great victory” on Twitter. For his part, former Vice President Joe Biden was also confident during an in-person speech at his home in Wilmington, Delaware.

“Keep the faith, we will win!” launched the ex-right arm of Barack Obama under the enthusiastic horns of his supporters gathered in “drive-in”, shortly after 12:30 in the morning. “We think we are on track to win this election,” he said, appealing to his supporters to be patient. “We are confident in Arizona,” a key state, said Joe Biden, 77, referring to other crucial states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.

But we will have to be patient before the verdict falls. “It will not be over before each ballot has been counted,” recalls the Democratic candidate. His campaign team announced around 1am that he was not planning, in principle, other public events for the night.

Shortly after the speech of his rival, Donald Trump pointed the finger at his rivals on social networks: “We are ahead and far, but they are trying to steal the election. We will never let them do it. The ballots cannot be deposited after the close of the poll ”. In the process, Twitter warned its users against a second potentially “misleading” message.

This did not stop the American president, however, who spoke of “fraud” in his last speech. “We are going to take the Supreme Court to stop the vote,” he threatened.

As a reminder, to win, a candidate must garner 270 electors. At 6.30am on Wednesday, Joe Biden continued to lead the race, but the gap had narrowed considerably. Results for nine states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and North Carolina, were not yet known.
