President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected the presidential election result still being counted in some states.
The US general elections were concluded on Tuesday and counting has continued since then.
Trump said there has been a lot of shenanigans, insisting that he was winning in all the key locations but suddenly his lead started getting miraculously whittled away.
While the incumbent is angry that mail-in votes are still being counted, some critics have claimed that Trump lost ground in some of the states because he actively discouraged his supporters from voting by mail, while Democrat Joe Biden urged his voters to use postal ballots.
It is the postal votes that are now being tallied in the key states.
Speaking from the White House on Thursday, Trump, who had on Wednesday said he has won the election, added, “We were winning in all the key locations, by a lot actually, and then our numbers started getting miraculously whittled away in secret and they wouldn’t allow legally permissible observers.
“There’s been a lot of shenanigans and we can’t stand for that in our country.”
The President, Donald Trump said he is not backing down on his claim of election fraud.
On Thursday night, Trump told the nation that he was hearing “horror stories” of how Democrats were allegedly manipulating the poll and mail-in ballots.
The Republican said he warned that the voting system would be a disaster.
Trump stated that the ongoing exercise was not about him or his challenger, Joe Biden.
The President stressed that the election was a matter of America’s democracy and image.
“I have said very strongly that mail-in ballots are going to end up being a disaster. Small elections were a disaster, this is a large-scale version and it’s getting worse everyday. We are hearing stories that are horror stories, absolute horror stories.
“We can’t let that happen to the United States of America. It’s not a question of who wins, Republican or Democrat; Joe or myself. We can’t let that happen to our country. We can’t be discgraced by having something like this happen,” he said.
