‘Trump gets dirty’: European papers on lengthy count and the US president’s claims of fraud

As another morning broke in Europe without a final result in the U.S. election, many newspapers again ran front pages on the lengthy vote count and President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated accusations of voter fraud.

Late Thursday, Trump repeated claims that the election was stolen, with both Republican and Democratic officials dismissing the allegations.

United Kingdom

— The Guardian put a protester holding a sign that reads “Count every vote” on its cover, in an apparent response to Trump’s calls on Twitter to “stop the count.” The headline reads: “Tensions rise as race for presidency goes to wire.”

— The Daily Mail went with “White House shoot-out: Now Trump gets dirty,” depicting both Trump and Biden with agitated faces.

— The Times contrasted Biden’s and Trump’s behavior: “Trump stokes fresh fury as Biden appeals for calm.” Donald Trump is absent from the front page. Instead, Joe Biden can be seen delivering a speech.

— “Trump demands halt to count as swing states hang in balance,” wrote the Financial Times, above a picture of protesters demanding every vote must be counted and the president should “leave Philly [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s capital and Democratic stronghold] alone.”

— The Economist also ran its front page on the ongoing ballot. They chose the headline “When every vote counts” above a picture of Joe Biden with Donald Trump in the background.

Germany

— In Germany, Süddeutsche Zeitung showed a Trump supporter in front of the White House alongside a picture of protesters demanding a proper vote count. “Joe Biden extends his lead,” the headline reads.

— “High tension in the fight for the white house,” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung put on its headline, above it a picture of masked election workers counting ballots.

— Die Welt went for a picture of an armed protester on its front page, while the headline reads: “Donald Trump counts on help from courts.”

— Der Tagesspiegel depicted a large 270 — the number of electoral votes a candidate needs to secure the presidency — with the headline: “Biden is close.”

France

— Libération picked the headline “America on a wire,” showing a picture of Joe Biden

— “How far can Trump go?” asks Le Parisien, with a picture of the U.S. president.

Belgium

— “An endless ballot” was the headline on Le Soir’s front page, conveying a sense of exhaustion. “Count every vote” reads the sign carried by a protester in the picture under the headline.

Spain

— “Biden, one step from victory,” El País wrote.

— “U.S. votes with fear that division could degenerate into violence,” El Mundo’s headline read, below it a picture of Trump on the campaign trail.
