American commentators are expressing shock at US President Donald Trump’s baseless claim that he has won the presidential election even as many millions of votes are yet to be tallied.
Donald Trump is hell bent on destroying our democracy. We can't let him.

No, Trump has not already won the election, and it is deeply irresponsible for him to say he has.

The vote count continues, there is no winner yet, and Trump’s claim of victory is premature. World leaders should wait for the democratic process, particularly given the time local officials need to count the large number of mail-in ballots. They should ensure every vote counts. pic.twitter.com/5a5bZ8pA5k

Chris Christie on Pres. Trump's election remarks: "I talk tonight… as a former U.S. Attorney. There's just no basis to make that argument tonight. There just isn't."
