The current President of the United States has today called the system that elected him rigged.
Speaking earlier, the former host of Celebrity Apprentice has accused electoral officials of blatant fraud and trying to ‘steal’ the election off him.
Donald Trump’s team say they have filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan, laying the groundwork for contesting the outcome in undecided battleground states.
Despite the fact he was elected with 46.1% of the popular vote (which was less than his opponent’s popular vote share) and handed the keys to the white house because of the Electoral College system, the President is now adamant that the system is rigged.
With the key battleground states looking tight, and Biden tipped as the favourite to now win the race, Trump has amped up the rhetoric around the election somehow being rigged against him.
While his claims weren’t being trotted out for a couple of hour window mid-afternoon our time when it looked like he was going to get another four years, Trump has since demanded that the votes be recounted until they go in his favour.
It’s not known how many states he wants re-counted and whether he wants the states where he narrowly won recounted.
More to come.
