Washington: Accusing the Democrats of attempting to steal the US election, US President Donald Trump on Thursday said that the election could be decided by the Supreme Court.
“We think we will win the election very easily, we think there’s going to be a lot of litigation because we have so much evidence, so much proof and it’s going to end up perhaps at the highest court on the land”, Trump said at the White House on Thursday, Sputnik reported.
“If you count the legal votes I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us. I have already decisively won many critical states. We won by historic numbers”, Trump added.
Trump said that his campaign observers are restricted from observing the polls.
“This is a case where they’re [Democrats] trying to steal an election, they’re trying to rig an election”, Trump said.
The US President added that the US voting system is corrupt, adding that the cities of Detroit and Philadelphia are some of the most politically corrupt places in the United States and they cannot be allowed to engineer the outcome of this year’s Presidential Election.
In addition, Trump said election workers in the key swing states are corrupt and part of a massive voter fraud scheme to undermine his re-election, adding that many mail-in ballots are illegally being accepted.
Trump further said, he won in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Georgia and is on track to win in Arizona.
The Trump campaigned failed in court on Thursday to halt the counting of votes in Georgia and Michigan, but litigation is ongoing in the toss-up state of Pennsylvania as the campaign seeks to temporarily halt votes in Philadelphia while they seek to gain access for observers at election centres.
Earlier in the day, Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden reiterated that every vote must be counted and also urged the Americans to stay calm.
“In America, the vote is sacred. It’s how the people of this country express their will. So, each ballot must be counted and that’s what is going on at present” Biden said, during a press briefing in Wilmington, Delaware.
According to Fox News count, Biden currently has 264 Electoral College votes. He is just six electoral votes short of the majority mark. Counting is still on in many states.
