President Trump “has a duty” to “half of America voted for him to consider” counting the votes in the 2020 presidential election “to make all transparent,” said Miranda Devine, chief executive officer. the New York Post entry says “Fox & Friends” on Monday.
Trump asserted on Twitter that the votes were improperly counted and that President-elect Joe Biden’s victory was too soon. Trump has vowed that his campaign will continue to present legal challenges in states where Biden has been declared a narrow winner.
Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits in several battlefield states where Biden leads with razor thin margins, including Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. It claimed cases of votes were illegally counted after Election Day and that those who watched the poll were blocked from observing the count.
“The observers were not allowed into the polling room. I won the election, got 71,000 legal votes. Bad things happened that our observers were not allowed to see.” Trump wrote in a tweet Saturday night that was labeled by Twitter as disputed. “Never happened before. Millions of mail ballots were sent out to people who never asked for them!”
“Here’s what Joe Biden should have said:” Open things up, open up the counting of votes and tabulate, “Devine said on Monday.
She added that Trump “must” fight to reassure voters that the 2020 election is fair.
“The president has to do this even if he doesn’t want to and just wants to play golf,” Devine said. “He owes it to the people who voted for him to reassure them that this is a fair election.”

Devine wrote a column in the New York Post published on Sunday titled “If there is cheating in the 2020 election, then we have to find it out.”
In the column, she notes that the 2020 election falls “by a small margin by anyone’s calculations” and that “the US is owed a legal examination of the election irregularities alleged by campaign Trump. ”
Speaking on Monday’s “Fox & Friends” Devine also highlighted that Democrats are now seeking unity after four years of resistance.
Devine said a real “act of healing and solidarity” would be if Biden reassured millions of Americans who were “not really clear about what happened” in the “very close election”. On Saturday night, Biden declared “a victory” and preached solidarity in Wilmington, Del., After earlier in the day the planned win in a controversial presidential election.
Biden’s remarks came hours after Fox News’s Decision Desk predicted that he and Vice President Kamala Harris would beat Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, rejecting them for a second term.
“I’m committed to being a president that seeks not to divide but to unify,” Biden said on Saturday night. “Who doesn’t see the red states and the blue states, only the United States.”
To Trump’s supporters, he said: “I understand tonight’s disappointment. But now let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put down the harsh rhetoric, bring the temperature down … In order to make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies, they are Americans. “
“You can’t call for solidarity … as you’ve just gone through the past four years with total rage about Hillary Clinton losing the election,” Devine said.
Democrats “spent the past four years lying about the president,” she noted, and “insulted his supporters.”
“They watched him. They impeached him. They arrested him. They did everything they could to try to make him illegal and get rid of him and authorize the 2016 election, ”Devine continued.
“And now they come back and say these nice words? It would have been a lot more believable if Joe Biden didn’t go and declared himself the winner on Saturday night before all these voting anomalies and other allegations were checked through the court because you have nearly 71 million Americans are not really clear about what happened, how this very recent election played out. ”
