US can be confident of ‘fair election’ – George W Bush

Araweelo News Network.

Washington(ANN)-The former US president the Republican George W Bush has spoken out about the results of the 2020 election, after President Trump rejected Biden’s victory.

Republican George W Bush, who was US president from 2001-09, has released a statement congratulating Biden on his win and assuring Americans that their “vote counted”.

“President Trump has the right to request recounts and pursue legal challenges, and any unresolved issues will be properly adjudicated,” he said, adding:

“The American people can have confidence that this election was fundamentally fair, its integrity will be upheld, and its outcome is clear.”

He also said he had spoken by phone to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris to congratulate them. He called Joe Biden “a good man who has won the opportunity to lead and unify our country”.

Bush also congratulated Donald Trump on winning the support of more than 70 million Americans, and said their voices would be “heard through elected Republicans at every level of government”.

Just to remind you – George W Bush became president after a very tight race in Florida in 2000, which was the subject of bitter legal arguments between Bush and his opponent Al Gore. The votes in Florida went to a recount, which was ended a month after the election by a controversial Supreme Court decision in Bush’s favour.
