In a series of fiery messages, Mr Trump appeared to finally concede defeat against his Democrat rival but has refused to go down quietly. It is now 12 days since the US election on November 3 and eight days since Mr Biden passed the threshold of 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House. In a furious post of social media, the 45th US President once again made outlandish claims of electoral fraud.
Mr Trump claimed there was no one to verify the postal votes for the Democrats.
He also launched a personal attack on the firm Demonion, which supplies election voting hardware, as well as the media.
Mr Trump wrote: “He won because the Election was Rigged.
“NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!”
In a second message, Mr Trump claimed there were irregularities during the counting and votes were stolen.
More than 100 million Americans cast their ballots by post due to the coronavirus pandemic and Mr Trump branded the voting method a “sick joke”.
He added: “All of the mechanical ‘glitches’ that took place on Election Night were really THEM getting caught trying to steal votes.
“They succeeded plenty, however, without getting caught. Mail-in elections are a sick joke!”
This is a developing news story, more to follow.
