Trump must respect the democratic process

(WASHINGTON) — On Trump prematurely declaring victory as vote counting in the 2020 presidential election continues, Lisa Rosenberg, executive director of Open The Government, issued the following statement:

“Prematurely declaring himself the winner of the presidential election before all of the ballots have been counted is a conspicuous attempt by the president to suppress the people’s choice. Fanning the flames in a deeply polarized and contentious election will not change the outcome. Spreading disinformation about the election will not change the outcome. The votes have been cast. They must be counted. The legitimacy of the election and the stability of our democracy demands it.”
