President Donald Trump has released a statement which simply says: “IF YOU COUNT THE LEGAL VOTES, I EASILY WIN THE ELECTION! IF YOU COUNT THE ILLEGAL AND LATE VOTES, THEY CAN STEAL THE ELECTION FROM US!”
It is the latest claim from the Trump campaign about “illegal” votes.
Mr Trump has launched legal action in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada and Wisconsin – states which either Joe Biden has won or which are hotly contested.
Mail-in votes have been a hot topic this year as less people are voting in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it is not unusual for mail-in votes to continue to be counted after election day.
Latest updates on the US election indicates that Joe Biden race to 270 Electoral College votes in key state Arizona and catching the President Trump in Pennsylvania and Georgia.
