Trump claimed victory in the election and accused Democrats of fraud as key states continued to count thousands of mail-in ballots.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to this country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly we did win this election,” President Trump said in remarks from the White House.
“This is a major fraud on our nation,” Trump said.
Trump claimed he is winning in key states – Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin – that have just begun to count mail ballots likely to favour Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
– Democrats win in Arizona, flipping Republican state to Biden
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and senate candidate Mark Kelly have been declared the winners in Arizona, according to The Associated Press.
The win gives Biden 11 votes in the Electoral College that Trump had won in 2016. Biden was helped by Republicans who left Trump.
