President Donald Trump's increasingly delusional claims of victory have been given a soft pat after an appeal court judge in Pennsylvania issued a directive to stop certifying election results.

According to Daily Mail, the order was given on Wednesday, November 25, barely a day after Governor Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania said the department of state had certified former vice president Joe Biden as the winner of the state's presidential poll.

Commonwealth court judge, Patricia McCullough, earlier ruled that Biden won the state but with the appeal court ruling, Pennsylvania is left with no other option than to approach the Supreme Court to overturn the decision.

Meanwhile, President Trump has reacted to the development in a post on his Twitter account, declaring it a "big news!"

Biden is projected to secure 306 electoral college votes to Trump's 232, making the Democrat the clear winner of the election by December 2020 when the final results will be announced.

Trump has yet to present proof of the widespread voter fraud that he claims cost him the election to Biden.

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that there is a crack in Joe Biden's camp over the sharing of cabinet slots ahead of the official announcement of the new presidency as some members "are pissed off" that they might be axed out of the plan.
