US President Donald Trump has 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 noted that there had been a lot of shenanigans, insisting that he was winning in all the key locations, but suddenly his lead started getting miraculously whittled away.
Angry that mail-in votes are still being counted, Trump gives electoral fraud as the reason for the large number of mail-in votes. 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 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.”
