President Donald Trump has stated that he would approach the United States Supreme Court to challenge the counting of the presidential election votes.
Naija News reports that Trump had earlier claimed that he had won the US election, despite the final results not yet to be announced.
“We did win this election,” Trump said in an extraordinary speech from the ceremonial East Room of the White House.
“For the good of this nation, this is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So, we will be going to the US Supreme Court,” Trump said.
The Republican, who according to initial results is in a neck-and-neck race with Democrat Joe Biden, said he would go to court and “we want all voting to stop.”
Meanwhile, Trump’s major opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden has said he is optimistic about the final outcome of the polls.
The Democrat who spoke live from Wilmington, Delaware on Tuesday night, said neither he nor Trump could declare who the next US president will be but the decision of the citizens.
