Belarusian Leader Calls US Election Hoax a Travesty of Democracy

This is a man who would know a thing or two about travesties of democracy.


America’s long-running and heavily disputed presidential election has made a mockery of democratic values, says Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, who himself is no stranger to wrangles over electoral legitimacy.

Speaking on Saturday, Lukashenko, who has run Belarus since 1994, told reporters to “look at what’s going on with these elections. It is a disgrace, a travesty for democracy.” He added that the process was a cause for “shame.”

While former vice president Joe Biden was touted as the winner of the race on Saturday evening, it is expected that the competition will drag on in the courts as President Donald Trump refuses to concede.

The whole world is watching.

It’s not just Americans who are going to hold this hoax against the US system – it is the whole world.
