Two days have passed since the US election day. Early results show Biden as the potential winner but nothing is settled yet. Trump's lawsuit and final ballot counting are still on the table. President López Obrador declined to comment on the US election until the counting ends and the official winner is announced. “We cannot say anything until the counting ends and the corresponding authority announces the winner. It is a close election. I only wish that things in the US continue to run as they have been until now,” said the president yesterday morning.
