2 min readOct 13, 2022

All the hopes of Donald Trump for winning the White House again have just shattered, as Joe Biden wins enough electoral college votes to be the president. California, a Democratic stronghold, became the state to certify the winning vote for Joe Biden. With this, he is all set to be the 46th president of the United States.

These events in the aftermath of the elections often get ignored, yet this time Trump cried enough foul to make this event worth discussing.

States which have yet to certify Biden’s victory include

As the date of the meeting of the electoral college, December 14, nears, the hopes of Donald Trump are diminishing one after another. Donald Trump has also won 222 electoral votes, with Missouri still left to certify Trump’s win.

He has already said that he will leave the White House in case of the official victory of Joe Biden.
