'We did win this election,' claims President Donald Trump
Trump says he will go to Supreme Court to dispute election count

President Donald Trump on Wednesday, November 4, claimed he had won the US election, despite the final results not yet being given, and said he would go to the Supreme Court to dispute the counting of votes.

“We did win this election,” Trump said in an extraordinary speech from the ceremonial East Room of the White House. “This is a fraud on the American public.”

The Republican, who according to initial results is in a neck-and-neck race with Democrat Joe Biden, said he would go to court and “we want all voting to stop.”

He appeared to mean stopping the counting of mail-in ballots which can be legally accepted by state election boards after the election on Tuesday, November 3, provided they were sent in time. – Rappler.com
