Trump's election statements undermine faith in democracy — OSCE




Donald Trump's allegations of problems with vote counting are unfounded, observers said.





US President Donald Trump's statements about problems with the counting of votes are unfounded and undermine public confidence in the institutions of democracy. This is stated in the preliminary report of the OSCE mission, reports CNN on Thursday, November 5.

The elections were “competitive and well-run despite legal uncertainty and logistical challenges,” the OSCE said.

Observers add that “late legal challenges and unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud have puzzled and worried both the officials involved in organizing the elections and the voters.” The report emphasizes what they mean by Donald Trump's statements.

“Baseless allegations of systematic problems, in particular on the part of the incumbent, including on the night after the elections, damage citizens' confidence in democratic institutions,” the mission said in a report.

In addition, observers noted a record high turnout, helped by the possibility of voting by mail.

“Despite numerous public statements by the incumbent on the reliability of mail-order voting, the number and scale of complaints about fraudulent mail-order voting remain extremely low,” observers noted.

We will remind that earlier Trump shouted at the owner of the TV channel because of Biden. The Trump-loyal TV channel “did not support” him, claiming that the Democratic nominee was in the lead in Arizona.

Trump also demanded to stop the counting of votes. In the United States, vote counting continues as millions of voters voted by mail due to the country's coronavirus epidemic.
