Trump calls US 'third world country'


Washington (PTI):

President Donald Trump has called the US a "third world country" as he blasted the "rigged" election, reiterating his unsubstantiated claims about widespread voter fraud in the presidential polls.

"It's like a third-world country. These ballots pouring in from everywhere, using machinery that nobody knows ownership, nobody knows anything about. They have 'glitches', as they call them. Glitches. The glitches weren't glitches. They got caught sending out thousands of votes, all against me," he said.

Democratic leader Joe Biden won the November 3 presidential election over Trump, who is continuing his legal efforts to upend his victory.

The Trump campaign has filed multiple lawsuits in several states, most of whom have been dismissed so far.

"If you look at the polls, it was a rigged election. You look at the different states. The election was rigged. It's a disgrace to our country," Trump told reporters, responding to a question ahead of the next week's meeting of electors who would cast their vote, formally putting their stamp on Biden's victory as the next US president.

"This was like from a third-world nation. I think the case has been made. Now we find out what we can do about it. But you'll see a lot of big things happening over the next couple of days, Trump said. (PTI)
