President Donald Trump falsely claimed early Wednesday November 4, that he had won the US presidential election, even though millions of legitimate votes were yet to be counted and a half-dozen battleground states were still not called.
The incumbent US President described the vote counting as a “major fraud” in a speech at the White House. He also disclosed that he will be heading to the Supreme Court.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.
“We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election.
“A very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise [people who voted for me] and we won’t stand for this.
“We were getting ready for a big celebration. We were winning everything, and all of a sudden it was just called off.
“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court, we want all voting to stop.”
It is however unclear what Trump meant “going to the Supreme Court,” given that the nation’s highest court is rarely the first judicial venue for a case, but rather it reviews lower court rulings.
The US President has not won re-election as of now, and key swing states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin remain too close to call.
