United States President Donald Trump's spiritual adviser Paula White has led an impassioned prayer service in an effort to secure the 74-year-old's re-election.
White's video appealing God went viral on Thursday, November 5 even as Trump's team vowed to sue all states for "still counting votes" two days after the casting of ballots ended.
In the video, White was heard chanting, "I hear the sound of victory" several times as she prayed to God to make way for Trump, who is seeking his second and final term in office.
"I hear a sound of victory. The Lord says it is done. For I hear, victory, victory, victory," she beseeched before adding: "Angels are being dispatched right now... angels have been dispatched from Africa right now... they're coming here, in the name of Jesus."
Biden still leading
As of Thursday morning, November 5, Biden was still leading in the race with at least 264 Electoral College votes to Trump's 214. Biden is just six votes shy of attaining the magic 270 number required to seal his victory to the White House.
The Democratic candidate, who served as the vice president of the US under the 44th president Barack Obama, maintained he was confident he would emerge victorious.
"I’m confident that we will emerge victorious. But this will not be my victory alone. It will be a victory for the American people," he tweeted.
Briefly.co.za sighted that Trump however, continued to insist the election was marred by fraud.
"Our lawyers have asked for “meaningful access”, but what good does that do? The damage has already been done to the integrity of our system, and to the presidential election itself. This is what should be discussed," he lamented.
As was earlier reported, Trump vowed to challenge the results in the Supreme Court on Thursday, November 4.
"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 4am in the morning and add them to the list," Trump said.
