President Donald Trump is expected to start a legal battle on Monday (today).

He had, after Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, on Saturday won the United States presidential election, rejected the result, saying he was going to court.

It had been reported that Biden had 290 Electoral College votes against Trump’s 214 votes.

Also, Biden won 74,939,396 votes, representing 50.6 per cent,

Trump had 70,636,322, representing 47.7 per cent of the votes.

Biden had addressed a deeply divided nation on Saturday night, promising to unite the country.

He also asked the supporters of President Donald Trump to give him a chance, calling on all Americans to turn the page from what he described as a “grim era of demonization.”

Biden made the plea for unity and understanding in his home town of Wilmington, Delaware.

He pledged to govern by the creed that “he does not see blue states and red states, but only the United States.”

Trump showed no indication that he plans to concede to his rival and continued to push the narrative on Twitter that he had won the election.

He was said to be pushing his attorneys to pursue legal challenges that would delay formal certification of the results.
