Southampton post amusing tweet
Southampton entered the weekend as the Premier League leaders, beating Newcastle United 2-0 at home Friday evening. Following the win, the club had 16 points. "STOP THE COUNT," Southampton tweeted, referring to a tweet by outgoing US President Donald Trump about alleged irregularities in the Nov. 3 elections against his Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Trump filed a lawsuit to stop the tallying of ballots last week in Nevada, one of the key states in the polls, as he complained about voter fraud while Biden was ahead. Biden on Saturday won the crucial state of Pennsylvania and with the victory there surpassed the necessary 270 Electoral College votes needed to claim the White House, according to The Associated Press and other major news organizations. The Democratic leader now holds a commanding 290 Electoral College votes after the AP also called Nevada for the president-elect.
