US President Donald Trump has come out to claim victory for the Presidential election, despite claiming the election had been rigged.
Trump addressed the nation at 2:21 a.m. Eastern time on the morning.
“This is without question the latest news conference I have ever had,” Trump began in what was essentially a rally held inside the White House.
Trump then complained about a very “sad” group of people he said — without any evidence — are trying to “disenfranchise” his supporters.
Trump went on to claim he had won a number of states where there have not been enough votes counted to call the results. His same misleading claims were shut down by Twitter earlier in the morning.
“This is a fraud on the American public,” he falsely claimed. “Frankly, we did win this election.
“So we’ll be going to the Supreme Court,” he said. “And we will win this.”
