At the time of writing, Joe Biden is leading Donald Trump, 227 to 214 in the Electoral College, with some stating the Democrat should be on course to secure a narrow election victory. Considering Mr Biden’s apparent lead, the Labour peer hinted it is now the end of Mr Trump and in general, right-wing politics. The Labour peer also declared it will be the end of Brexit which he claimed would be reversed.
Although Mr Trump could still win the election with states left to declare, Lord Adonis made the bold claim to his followers.
He said: “This is the beginning of the end of Johnson too – and Brexit, though that will take longer to reverse.”
However, some of his followers were quick to issue their doubt over the end of the two politicians.
One person said: “Bit of a stretch I’d say.”
A second said: “Dream on Andrew.”
A third said: “Wouldn’t bank on it.”
Early into today’s count, Mr Trump had issued his scepticism over the validity of some counts across the country.
This evening, the President’s campaign has said it will file legal action against the Michigan state commission.

Under this, the campaign wants access to certain locations where ballots were counted.
Michigan is one of the key states during the election and at the time of writing, Mr Trump is tracking slightly behind the Democrat nominee 49.5 percent to 48.8.
The state also carries 16 Electoral College seats and is regarded as a swing state, meaning it is not strictly supportive of one party.
Mr Trump’s campaign has also said it will launch a legal challenge against Wisconsin and is suing for a halt to the vote count in Pennsylvania.

Mr Trump said: “Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key states, in almost all instances Democrat-run & controlled.
“Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted.
“Very strange, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!”
Currently, the actual voting has closed with the ballots just to be counted in order to declare the winner.
In order to win the election, the successful candidate needs 270 of the 538 Electoral College seats.
With some states such as Michigan and Florida carrying a high number of seats (16 and 29 respectively), more emphasis has been placed on winning them.
However, with some states using a high number of postal votes, some have stated it could take a prolonged time for the final result to be declared.
