US 2020 Election Updates: “We Are Going To Win This Race, The Numbers Tell Us It’s Clear” : Joe Biden Tells Supporters

In anticipation of becoming America’s 46th president if he maintains his lead in Arizona and Pennsylvania, Joe Biden has expressed confidence to his supporters that he would win the presidency from incumbent President Donald Trump.

Biden, a former US vice-president running under the Democratic party, said he expected to end up with over 300 electoral votes, more than the 270 needed to claim the White House.

He also expressed satisfaction with his lead in the popular vote — in which he led Trump on Friday night by an estimated 4 million votes.

US 2020 Election updates: ?We are going to win this race, the numbers tell us it?s clear"- Joe Biden tells supporters

“My fellow Americans, we don’t have a final declaration of victory yet, but the numbers tell us it’s clear,” Biden said at a late nighttime speech in Wilmington, Delaware with vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris by his side.

“We are going to win this race,” Biden said. “Just look at what has happened since yesterday.

“Twenty-four hours ago, we were behind in Georgia, now we’re ahead, and we are going to win that state,” he said.

“Twenty-four hours ago, we were behind in Pennsylvania, and we are going to win Pennsylvania … We are winning in Arizona, we’re winning in Nevada. In fact, our lead just doubled in Nevada.”

“We’re going to win this race with a clear majority, with the nation behind us,” he said. “We’ve gotten over 74 million votes — let me repeat that — 74 million votes. That’s more than any other presidential ticket in the history of the United States of America.

“And our vote total is still growing. We are beating Donald Trump by over 4 million votes. And that’s a margin that’s still growing as well.”

Biden also said he and Harris are already preparing to assume office, even though they haven’t been declared the winners.

“The pandemic, as you also know, is getting more worrisome across the country. Cases are skyrocketing,” he said.

“It’s believed we could see as many as 200,000 cases a day, and the death toll is approaching 240,000 lives lost — 240,000 empty chairs across America. We’ll never be able to measure that pain, the loss, the suffering, that so many families have experienced,” Biden said.

“We can’t save any of the lives that have been lost, but we can save a lot of lives in the months ahead.”

Biden said he and Harris also heard from experts “about how this recovery is slowing because of the failure to get the pandemic under control.”

“More than 20 million people are on unemployment. Millions are worried about making rent, and putting food on the table. Our economic plan will put a focus on a path to a strong recovery,” he promised.

Elon Musk Overtakes Bill Gates To Become World’s Second-Richest Person Within A Week

Published

Elon Musk has passed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to become the world’s second-richest person, only a week after he overtook Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg to become the third-richest as Tesla’s share price continues to soar.

The electric car company’s value has risen following the announcement that it would join the S&P 500 index of leading US companies, driving its market value close to $500bn.

Mr Musk, 49, is now worth more than $128 billion (£95bn) as he owns 20% of all of the company’s shares, which have risen by more than 675% since 25 November last year, when they were valued at $67.27 (£50.33) each.

Tesla’s share price is currently valued at $521.49 (£390.20) a share, and if the growth continues, Musk could net a bonus deal worth a record $55.8bn. To trigger the maximum payout he has to build Tesla into a $650bn company by 2028, The Guardian reports.

Tesla is the most valuable car company in the world by share price, with a market value of just over $494bn (£370bn).

Just last week, Musk overtook Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg in the third position.

Amazon founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos remains at the top of the Bloomberg rich list, with an estimated net worth of $182bn (£136bn).

‘Messi Told Me He Was Screwed When I Rejected Barca’ : Antoine Griezmann

Published

on

Antonie Griezmann, Barcelona and France striker has revealed that his initial decision to reject a transfer to Barcelona in 2018 angered superstar footballer, Lionel Messi.

Despite recent controversies painting a negative relationship between Messi amd Griezmann, Messi spoke positively about Griezmann joining the club in 2018, and the Frenchman has admitted the pair had a long conversation when he eventually joined the club.

“When I signed for the club I asked for forgiveness for delaying the move and saying I wouldn’t join Barcelona,” Griezmann told Jorge Valdano on the latest edition of Universo Valdano. “I told Lionel Messi that I would give everything on the pitch for the club.

“I spoke with Leo when I arrived and he told me that when I turned down the first chance to go, he was screwed because he had asked for it publicly, but he told me he was with me and I notice it every day.“\

Griezmann’s former agent Eric Olhats and uncle Emmanuel Lopes have caused controversy by saying Griezmann has a negative relationship with Messi but the striker says he has no relationship with both men .

“He (Olhats) was very important in my life but I don’t have a relationship with him anymore,” Griezmann said.

“I stopped having any relationship with him since the day I got married. I invited him to the wedding day, and he didn’t come. That’s why I stopped having a relationship with him.

“My uncle doesn’t know how football works. And in the end, the journalist ended up getting the statement out of him. I told Leo that I never speak to them, in fact, I don’t even have my uncle’s phone number.

“My parents don’t talk to Eric either, so who is going to talk to him? He can do a lot of damage, and create problems in the dressing room.”

Barcelona are struggling in La Liga, where they sit in 13th in the table – 12 points behind leaders Real Sociedad, albeit with two games in hand.

‘I Saw Mahama Carrying 4 Coffins Coming Out Of A Pit’ : Owusu Bempah’s Latest Prophecy

Published

Owusu Bempah, founder and leader of Glorious Word Power Ministries has given yet another prophecy about NDC Presidential candidate, John Mahama.

Speaking on NET 2 TV, he claims he saw the former president in a revelation on Monday dawn carrying 4 coffins on his head, coming out of a pit.

“I had a vision, I saw an angel splitting the clouds into two. Then I saw a very deep pit, where ex-president John Dramani Mahama was coming out of carrying four coffins,” Rev. Owusu Bempeh said on Net 2 TV’s ‘The Seat’ show Monday evening.

Rev. Owusu Bempah alleged: “Former President Rawlings’s death was not natural; his death was spiritual. I had a vision in which I saw three different human hearts popping champagne and jubilating while the lifeless body of Mr Rawlings was resting on the table. These hearts were just jubilating and smiling while they were looking at the lifeless body of Mr Rawlings.

He then added: “I am a spiritual person and so I understand these things and know who those hearts stand for. Somebody in Ghana is looking for political power and he will never get that power. I will always say it because I am not scared of anybody. Nobody can kill me and so I will always tell the truth.”
