President Trump declared himself the winner on Wednesday
Although the Presidential election results are still being counted, President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected the election result in some states.
Trump alleged that the counting which started since the end of the Tuesday election had seen a lot of irregularities, 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.”
