President Donald Trump has controversially declared himself as the winner of the US presidential election ahead of any official announcement.
Trump who made the declaration on Saturday, November 7, via Twitter, suggested that he won the election by a large margin.
The president said:
"I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!"
The president's tweets were immediately flagged by Twitter with a warning that the claim was not backed by official sources.
Trump's controversial declaration came shortly after he alleged that thousands of illegal ballots were counted on election day after 8pm on Tuesday, November 3.
He also claimed that bad things took place on election night that changed results in Pennsylvania and other states.
Trump further alleged that observers were illegally prevented from monitoring hundreds of thousands of votes, which he said led to the manipulation of results.

Trump went for a drive wearing a white Maga cap, windbreaker, dark slacks, non-dress shirt and shoes.
