"This is a fraud on the American public. As far as I’m concerned, we already have won," he said before adding:
"We' will be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 am in the morning and add them to the list."

The 74-year-old alleged Biden and his Democratic party were trying to "steal the election" but the vowed he would never allow them to do it.
