President Donald Trump has questioned a report which stated that Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, garnered 80 million votes in the US election.
Trump in a tweet on Thursday, November 26, argued that there was no way Biden got such huge number of votes.
He alleged that the report about Biden’s win was an indication that the US election was rigged.
Just saw the vote tabulations. There is NO WAY Biden got 80,000,000 votes!!! This was a 100% RIGGED ELECTION.
The president’s tweet was flagged by Twitter for reportedly containing information this is disputed.
Trump has repeatedly questioned the integrity of the US election which Joe Biden was projected to have won.
He has alleged that widespread voter fraud occurred during the poll but has been unable to prove his allegations in court.
In another news, some members of the Republican Party have continued to contest the result of the US presidential election which projected Democratic candidate, Joe Biden as the winner of the poll.
According to Bloomberg, a group of Pennsylvania Republicans filed an emergency lawsuit seeking to block certification of the election results in favour of Joe Biden in the state.
The petition was filed in the state ahead of the Monday, November 13, deadline for Pennsylvania counties to certify their voting results.
Meanwhile, a former American leader, Barack Obama, has advised President Trump to put aside his pride and concede defeat in the United States (US) presidential election.
Obama believes Trump should have accepted his fate even a day after the election was concluded, Sky News reports.
He urged the president to put the nation first and be remembered as one who was humble enough to shelve his personal interests for the common good of all.
