Democrats not happy with Trump’s early claim to victory

Prez Trump falsely predicts victory

President Trump’s unfounded declaration that “frankly, we did win this election” has prompted a strong reaction from Democratic politicians.

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is projected to win re-election in New York, condemned Trump’s claim as “illegitimate, dangerous, and authoritarian”.

“Count the votes. Respect the results,” she tweeted.

House Representative for Minnesota Ilhan Omar called Trump a “dangerous man”, tweeting “you can’t stop ballots from being counted”.

“This isn’t a dictatorship,” she added.

Amy Klobuchar, the senator for Minnesota, struck a more measured tone.
