Trump, Biden foresee win in high-stake US election 2020

With knife-edge 2020 US presidential elections coming to a close, Democrat Joe Biden has predicted a win for himself while president Donald Trump shot right back by claiming his own victory and accusing his opponents of vote theft.

Appearing before supporters in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, after midnight, Biden said "we believe we´re on track to win this election."

"Keep the faith, guys, we´re going to win this."

But Biden, 77, warned that because of the unprecedented use of mail-in voting during the coronavirus pandemic getting final results would "take a while."

Seconds later, Trump tweeted his rebuttal, saying: "We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election."

The Republican president, who was watching results come in with staff at the White House, said he would shortly deliver a public statement.
