Biden wins Georgia as Trump continues baseless fraud claims, secures North Carolina

Mr Ron Klain, a seasoned Democratic operative was chosen as United States President-elect Joe Biden's chief of staff on Wednesday Donald Trump Speaks Publicly for First Time Since Losing the Election, Won't Send Vaccine to New York

Democrat Biden, who led Republican President Donald Trump by more than 14,000 votes in Georgia out of five million cast, was projected the victor in the state on Friday.

As it stands Mr Biden is projected to secure 290 electoral college votes, with Mr Trump having won 232. They were joined by officials from each state who rebuked claims made by Mr Trump and his supporters of "election rigging" and that last week's vote was "stolen" from him.

Pressure is growing on Mr Trump to acknowledge Mr Biden's victory and help prepare the transition from one administration to another. "I will not go, this administration will not be going to a lockdown", he said.

The General Services Administration (GSA), the government agency tasked with beginning the process, has yet to recognise Mr Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris as winners. Georgia is the one state that Fox News has not called, but Biden is winning the Peach State ahead of the hand recount.

Supporters of President Donald Trump are set to rally in Washington DC to back his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the United States election.

He said a vaccine would ship "in a matter of weeks" to vulnerable populations.

Mr Trump and his campaign have refused to concede the election, using social media and news conferences to baselessly allege widespread voter fraud.

Trump took aim at NY governor Andrew Cuomo over comments he made that people were right to be skeptical of a vaccine overseen by the current presidential administration.

Bringing up the Dominion scandal, in which Trump lawyers demonstrated that faulty voting machines have flipped some 6,000 votes in Biden's favour in one county in MI due to a "glitch", Powell alleged that this was just the tip of the iceberg in an worldwide conspiracy. "I guess time will tell".

The president has consistently played down the pandemic, which has killed more than 240,000 Americans and infected more than 10 million people in the US.

With more than 100,000 new confirmed U.S. cases reported daily for more than a week, Trump has been more focused on tracking the rollout of a vaccine, which won't be widely available for months.

Slaoui vouched for the safety of the vaccines in development.

Trump, aiming to settle political scores, said he would not ship vaccines to hard-hit NY until Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs off, noting that the state has promised to do its own review to ensure their safety.
