That’s what it felt like.
“An international observer mission to the US elections has criticized President Donald Trump’s allegations of election rigging, saying he undermined trust in democracy.
The mission of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), which monitors elections throughout Western nations and the former Soviet Union, said there was no evidence of election fraud in Tuesday’s vote which was “competitive and well managed”, despite challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.” https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/11/5/osce-observer-says-trump-allegations-on-vote-harm-public-trust
“At the invitation of the State Department, the OSCE sent 100 observers to more than 30 states to watch the vote. The preliminary findings they released Wednesday will be followed by a more comprehensive report early next year from the election monitoring branch of the OSCE.
The observers expressed a measure of admiration for the administration of the election and a heavy dose of criticism. They portrayed Election Day and the early voting in preceding weeks as “competitive and well-managed” amid the coronavirus pandemic, despite the more than 400 lawsuits already filed and in 44 states.
But the preliminary report spread its criticism broadly. It expressed concern about the “acrimonious campaign rhetoric,” especially by Trump, who the observers said had often blurred the lines between campaigning and governing.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/election-observers-trump-allegations/2020/11/04/4a538500-1ee0-11eb-9ec3-3a81e23c4b5e_story.html
