White House still up for grabs Wednesday morning with Trump and Biden both still confident

There are still some significant unknowns in the U.S. presidential election.

Ballots are still being tallied in several battleground states, like Michigan and Wisconsin, where big numbers of Americans voted by mail.

Democrat Joe Biden’s campaign says it will fight any efforts by President Donald Trump’s campaign to go to the U.S. Supreme Court to prevent ballots from being counted.

At an early morning news conference, Trump declared that he will “be going to the U-S Supreme Court” and that he wants “all voting to stop.”

As of 5:30 a.m. Saskatchewan time, Biden was reporting 224 electoral college votes to Trump’s 213 it takes 270 to “win”.

Meanwhile experts say the morning after election day in the United States means more political and economic uncertainty for Canada.

The lack of a clear winner Tuesday night is disappointing to people like Houston-born Jennifer Phillips, who voted by mail from Vancouver for Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

She says Americans know that navigating COVID, climate change and the economy need U.S. participation and leadership, because what affects the U.S. affects the world.
