“Now that the campaign is over, it’s time to put the anger and the tough rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation,” he said.
It is time for the United States to unite and recover.
“They are America’s United States. And if we do it together, there is nothing we can’t do.
A number of unsubstantiated allegations were made by Mr. Trump to say that he was cheated out of re-election, while Mr. Biden called for calm as votes were counted long after Nov. 3 in key contested states.
On Saturday morning, a top election official rejected Mr. Trump’s new claims of voter fraud.
But Federal Election Commission Commissioner Ellen Weintraub said there had been no evidence of voter fraud.
Speaking on CNN after Mr. Trump’s series of tweets – which were flagged by Twitter as containing information about the election that may be “misleading” – Democrat Ms. Weintraub said, “State and local officials, and election officials across the country, really stepped up.
“And there have been very few complaints about how this election has gone.
“Very few substantiated complaints, let me put it that way. There’s no evidence of any kind of voter fraud.
