The incumbent President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has come out to make a baseless accusation, as he falsely claims early on Wednesday morning November 4, that he had won the US presidential election, even though millions of legitimate votes are still being counted across the country and a half-dozen battleground states were still yet to be declared.
President Donald Trump has described the vote-counting system as a “major fraud” in a speech he made earlier today at the White House. He also disclosed that he will be heading to the Supreme Court.

Donald Trump said;
“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.
“A very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise [people who voted for me] and we won’t stand for this.
“We were getting ready for a big celebration. We were winning everything, and all of a sudden it was just called off.
“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court, we want all voting to stop.”

It is however unclear what Trump meant by “going to the Supreme Court,” given that the nation’s highest court is rarely the first judicial venue for a case, but rather it reviews lower court rulings.
The US President has not won re-election as of now, and key swing states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin remain too close to call.
Joe Biden on his own side has decided to call for patience from the American people while counting of votes is still on and as said it might go on for days.The frontrunner said his campaign was “on track to win this election.”
Speaking at his campaign HQ in Delaware, Biden said:
“We feel good about where we are. We really do.
“I’m here to tell you tonight we believe we’re on track to win this election. We knew because of the unprecedented early vote and mail in vote, it was going to take a while and we’d have to be patient…and it ain’t over til every vote is counted.
“But we feel good about where we are.
“We could know the results as early as tomorrow morning, but it may take a little longer.
“It’s not my place or Donald Trump’s place to decide the outcome of this election. That’s down to the American people.”
