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.”

President Trump also said without evidence on Thursday that if "legal" votes are counted he would win the presidential election, in a signal he is in no mood to concede to Democrat Joe Biden.

 

"If you count the legal votes I easily win," Trump said in an appearance in the White House briefing room, complaining that ballots still being counted suggest to him that the election is being rigged and stolen from him.
