USA election: Obama says fraud claims undermining democracy

Biden to talk about Obamacare as Supreme Court decides its future Biden wins Arizona, cementing lead in US election

"We understand the results of the USA election will be determined according to USA laws and procedures", Reuters quoted Wenbin as saying.

Klain, who led the US government's Ebola response in 2014, is expected to take a leading role in Biden's approach to the intensifying pandemic that has killed more than 242,000 Americans, with a record 142,000 new COVID-19 cases registered on Wednesday.

China's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on Friday extended congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, adding China respects the choice of the American people.

On Friday, Decision Desk HQ and Insider first called Biden the victor of the 2020 election after he surpassed the necessary 270 electoral votes needed to win, flipping key battleground states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and MI.

A coalition of U.S. federal and state officials say they have no evidence that votes were compromised or altered in last week's presidential election, rejecting unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud advanced by President Donald Trump and many of his supporters.

- Almost a week after President-elect Joe Biden clinched the presidency over Donald Trump, China on Friday congratulated the former Vice President on the win.

Among the statement's authors were the presidents of the National Association of State Election Directors and the National Association of Secretaries of State who manage elections of the state level.

Fox News and The Associated Press called the race in the southwestern state in Biden's favor on Election Night, triggering the wrath of president Donald Trump, but the other outlets held off on declaring a victor until after nine days of ballot counting.

However, a small but growing number of Republicans are now backing calls for Biden to be given daily intelligence briefings.

The President-elect's margin is now about 11,000 votes, or 0.3%.

Former US president Barack Obama on Thursday criticized senior Republicans who back Trump's claims of fraud, saying that they are undermining democracy.

But Trump has seized on the undeniable reality that he remains popular with Republicans.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi weighed in Thursday to demand Republicans stop what she called an "absurd circus" and turn to combatting the pandemic.

"I'm honored by the President-elect's confidence and will give my all to lead a talented and diverse team in a Biden-Harris WH", Klain tweeted. Mr Biden will be only the second Roman Catholic president of the US.
