He disclosed that his campaign will begin the process of challenging the results of the election in court.

Trump said:

"The American people are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots.
"It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters."

He accused the Democratic party of illegally preventing observers from monitoring the vote-counting process.

Trump also tweeted that he won the election with 71 million votes and cast doubts on the mail-in ballots that were counted in the poll.

Meanwhile, the proected US president-elect, Joe Biden has promised to be the president for all Americans whether they voted for him or not.

The 77-year-old's win in Pennsylvania ensured he surpassed the magic 270 Electoral College votes that determine who is elected the president in the US regardless of the popular votes.
