Trump said:

He doubled down on his criticism of the mail-in ballots and questioned why mail-in ballots had a high percentage.

Trump had previously called for the counting of mail-in-ballots to be stopped. He said his legal team will head to court immediately after the US presidential election to challenge the counting of late ballots.

The president made the statement on Sunday, November 1, when speaking to reporters in Charlotte ahead of a rally in Hickory, North Carolina, The Guardian reported.

He raised doubts over mail and absentee votes, and questioned why the counting of late arriving ballots should be allowed after election day.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden's camp has described as "outrageous, unprecedented and incorrect" the threats by Donald Trump to use the Supreme Court to stop the counting of the ballots in the US election.

Jen O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s campaign manager, issued this rebuttal in a reaction on Wednesday, November 4.
