While Joe Biden has a demanding 5 million-vote lead against Donald Trump and has already gotten more than 270 electoral votes, one of Trump’s senior legal advisers are now demanding that Biden “prove” he won the election.
Jenna Ellis, who’s been advising the president’s campaign on legal matters, took to Twitter on Thursday to claim that Biden was uncertain about his win and shouldn’t be afraid to prove it.
“If Joe Biden is really confident he won legally and legitimately,” Ellis tweeted, “why is he so afraid of proving it?”

Ellis’ claims were quickly debunked on Twitter. Here are some of the best responses:

Joe Biden won. Trump has filed 16 lawsuits, ALL of which have been dismissed. No fraud. Our country is most vulnerable during transitions of power which is why we have set procedures in place. But Trump hates America so much, he is refusing to protect her. Decency restored. pic.twitter.com/AbPXMbS6ZM

If Trump team has evidence of fraudulent activity, why won't they bring it forward. So far, everything they have brought forward has been debunked.

What preparation does President-Elect Biden need to take to prove he won the election? All of the data I see demonstrates the clear fact that he won.
The problem is is that the gop does not like facts and truth. Those pesky things get in the way of their rhetoric. pic.twitter.com/PGFIJKpRhc
