US election: Donald Trump trails as Joe Biden wins Georgia recount

President-elect Joe Biden on Monday called for a new stimulus package to help the United States recover from the damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Joe Biden won the vote count in the US elections in Georgia.

The BBC reports that the former vice president beat President Donald Trump by 12,284 votes, according to the audit required by state law.

The tally found that the error rate peaked at 0.73 percent and that Biden’s victory gap over Trump remained below 0.5 percent.

Biden had said that Trump knew he was not going to win and had shown “incredible irresponsibility.”

The Democrat’s margin of total votes in the Nov. 3 poll is over 5.9 million.

The former senator’s win over the U.S. electoral college system is projected to be 306-232.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger insisted the manual audit of the ballots did not favor Biden.

In a statement Thursday, the Republican said Georgia’s historic first state audit reaffirmed that the state’s new secure paper-based voting system accurately counted and reported results.

“This is a credit to the hard work of our county and local election officials who moved quickly to undertake and complete such a momentous task in a short period of time,” Raffensberger noted.

The General Services Administration (GSA) has yet to recognize Biden as president-elect.
