The international observer mission to the US elections has said Donald Trump abused his office position after the president said the elections has been cheated on and demanded that vote counting be halted, Oyogist.com learnt.
One of the Observers was quoted as saying;
“The most disturbing thing was that with presidential fanfare of the White House, that is, with all the insignia of power, the American commander-in-chief called for an end to the count because of his purported victory,” Michael Link told the German daily Stuttgarter Zeitung.
“That was a gross abuse of office,” he said, adding that Trump’s “claims of manipulation are baseless”.
“The major concern is that the US will not be able put back into the bottle the genie that Trump has let out.
“Even if he were to admit defeat and hand over office properly, his supporters, incited by rhetoric, may see violence as a legitimate tool because they no longer feel democratically represented,” said Link.
