U.S. President Donald Trump reiterated his claim on Thursday (November 26) that President-elect Joe Biden could not have beaten former President Barack Obama with black voters.
“This is not a candidate [referring to Biden] who could get 80 million votes. This is not a candidate who beat Barack Hussein Obama with the black voter. This is not a candidate who beat Obama with the black voter,” said Trump.
Trump made the comment at the White House after speaking to U.S. troops during the traditional Thanksgiving Day address to U.S. servicemembers.
Biden won the Nov. 3 presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes – many more than the 270 required – to Trump’s 232. Biden also leads Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote tally.
Trump has so far refused to concede the election and continues to claim without evidence that the election was marred by widespread fraud, and that he and not Biden won it.
