Trump claims ‘major fraud’ being perpetrated; says he will fight election in Supreme Court



US President Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed that a “major fraud” is being perpetrated on the American people and said that he would fight the election in the Supreme Court, as the counting of votes were in progress in the battleground states.

“Frankly, we won this election,” Trump claimed.

Trump, a Republican, is being challenged by the Democratic Party’s nominee Joe Biden.

“Millions and millions of people voted for us,” Trump said in a speech at the White House on Wednesday.

“A very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people,” he claimed.

“We were getting ready for a big celebration. We were winning everything. And suddenly it was just called off,” he said.

“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country,” the Republican leader said.

Trump said he would go to the Supreme Court as he wanted all voting to stop. (PTI)
