She further expressed optimism that the former vice president still has a pathway to victory even if he loses Pennsylvania and Florida - two states already declared for Trump.

Sensing a possible defeat, he also accused the former vice president, Joe Biden, of electoral fraud and alleged vote stealing.

But in a response, Dillon berated Trump for threatening democratic process and vowed to challenge the "unprecedented" act, ABC News reports.

"It was outrageous because it is a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.
"It was unprecedented because never before in our history has a president of the United States sought to strip Americans of their voice in a national election."

Biden is taking a lead on the electoral college scoresheet having polled 238 (50% popular votes) with President Trump trailing behind with 213 (48.4% popular votes).
