President Trump on Wednesday claimed that “ballot dumps” were tallied in some Democrat-run states costing him his advantage over Joe Biden.
“Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled. Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted,” the president wrote on Twitter. “VERY STRANGE, and the ‘pollsters’ got it completely & historically wrong!”
“How come every time they count Mail-In ballot dumps they are so devastating in their percentage and power of destruction?,” Trump said in another post.
Neither he nor Biden has been declared the winner in Tuesday’s presidential election as a number of swing states – including Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, continue to tabulate the vote.
A record number of mail-in and absentee ballots were filed in the election because of many voters’ concerns about submitting their ballot in person amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking at the White House early Wednesday morning, Trump said a “very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise” his voters and he vowed to ask the Supreme Court to step in an order a halt to counting any more votes.
“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. So our goal now is to ensure the integrity,” Trump said, declaring himself the winner.
“We’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list, OK?”
