Donald Trump has said that the US election is a “fraud on the American public”, reports RTC.
Speaking at the White House, the US President that he will be going to the Supreme Court to dispute the election count.
Despite incomplete results from several battleground states that could determine the outcome of the presidential race, Mr Trump proclaimed victory over his Democratic rival Joe Biden.
“Frankly, we did win,” Mr Trump told supporters.
He also said that the results of the election have been “phenomenal”.
Counting is still underway in the election and so far Mr Trump has 213 Electoral College votes while Mr Biden has 220.
Mr Trump won the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Texas, dashing Mr Biden’s hopes for a decisive early victory, but Mr Biden said he was on track to winning the White House by taking three key so-called Rust Belt states.
Mr Biden was eyeing the so-called “blue wall” states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that sent Mr Trump to the White House in 2016 for possible breakthroughs once those states finish counting votes in hours or days to come.
“We feel good about where we are,” Mr Biden said in his home state of Delaware, shouting over a din of supporters in cars honking their horns in approval.
“We believe we’re on track to win this election,” he said.
Mr Trump has repeatedly and without evidence suggested that an increase in mail-in voting will lead to an increase in fraud, although election experts say that fraud is rare and mail-in ballots are a long-standing feature of American elections.
