Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump claimed victory in the presidential election and threatened to take the decision to the Supreme Court, claiming Democrats were committing fraud.
As key states continued to count hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots, the incumbent president said: “Millions and millions of people voted for us today and a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to this country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election,” President Trump said in remarks from the White House.
Trump claimed he is winning in key states -- Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin -- that have just begun to count mail-in ballots likely to favour Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Speaking in Wilmington, Delaware, a couple of hours earlier, Biden called for “patience” while the counting of ballots continued. “It ain’t over ‘til every vote is counted, every ballot is counted,” Biden said.
“It’s not my place, or Donald Trump’s place, to declare who’s won this election. That’s the decision of the American people,” Biden said.
