US election: Dominic Raab refuses to say whether all votes should be counted

Foreign secretary Dominic Raab has repeatedly refused to say whether all votes should be counted in the US presidential election. Mr Raab’s insistence that he would not be “dragged into” questions over the legitimacy of the poll was branded “astonishing” by Sky News interviewer Sophy Ridge, who rolled her eyes and shook her head at his response. The foreign secretary surprised many with a congratulatory tweet to president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris last night, when he said that it had been a close contest fought hard by Donald Trump and that “some of the processes are still playing out”.
