Biden hopes Congress upholds the US' support for Ukraine
During the press conference US President Joe Biden says that there had been no tampering with voting process of the US midterm elections.
"While the press and the pundits are predicting a giant red wave, it didn't happen," Biden said on Wednesday.
According to NBC News' projections as of Wednesday afternoon, the Democrats are predicted to win 213 seats in the US House of Representatives, while the Republicans are predicted to win 222 seats. However, because certain final findings have not yet been verified, these figures might change.
If Democrats maintain control of the US Senate or whether Republicans get a majority will depend on the results of the Senate election results in the states of Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada. In order to take control of the upper chamber of Congress, Republicans must triumph in two of the three states.
Furthermore, Biden asserted, during a news conference, that there was no meddling with the US midterm election voting process.
According to Biden, "The states across the country saw record voter turnout and the heart and soul of our democracy, the voters, the poll workers, election officials, they did their job, and they fulfill their duty, apparently without much interference at all without any interference it looks like and that's a testament I think to the American people."
During the press conference, Biden reaffirmed his optimism and hope that the new Congress "will continue this bipartisan approach of controlling Russia's aggression in Ukraine."
Biden: Democracy does not happen by accident
US President Joe Biden praised voters, poll workers, and various officials on Wednesday for participating in the midterm elections. He also said he will make further comments concerning the vote and take questions later in the afternoon.
"I'll have more to say this afternoon, but thanks to the poll workers and officials that worked into the night to safeguard our sacred right to vote. And the millions who made their voices heard," Biden said via Twitter.
According to the White House, Biden will be holding a press conference at 4:00 pm to deliver his remarks.
