Donald Trump declares himself winner of US presidential election

Meanwhile, in his latest effort to discredit the United States election, President Donald Trump has warned his rival, Joe Biden, not to claim victory wrongfully.

The US president, in a tweet on Friday, November 6, announced that legal proceedings have now begun.

This was after mail-in ballot counts pushed Biden, a former vice president, into the lead in Pennsylvania.

In another report, Trump alleged that thousands of illegal ballots were counted on election day after 8pm on Tuesday, November 3.

The US president who has consistently questioned the legitimacy of the presidential election on Saturday, November 7, alleged on Twitter that bad things took place on election night that changed results in Pennsylvania and other states.

He also alleged that observers were illegally prevented from monitoring hundreds of thousands of votes, which he said led to the change of results in many states, including Pennsylvania.

Trump claimed that after people were not allowed to observe vote counting on election night, his lead in Pennsylvania and other numerous states disappeared.

The president alleged that tractors were used to block doors and windows with thick cardboard so that people could not see into the counting rooms to observe what he described as bad things that took place there.
