Trump said he will go to the Supreme Court to stop counting votes

Donald Trump announced his victory in the presidential race Wednesday morning, despite millions of votes still counting in several states. After that, the current leader of the country promised to appeal to the Supreme Court to try to stop the counting — because he fears «fraud».

Trump claims to have won in states such as Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan, although tens of thousands of ballots have not yet been counted.

“This is a deception of American society. This is a shame for our country. We were preparing to win these elections. To be honest, we have already won this election, ”Trump said, speaking from the East Room of the White House.

“This is a very important point. This is a major fraud against our nation. We want the law to be applied properly. Therefore, we will go to the US Supreme Court. We want the vote count to stop. We don't want them to find any bulletins at four in the morning and add them to the list. It's very sad. «

Vice President Pence, who spoke shortly after the president, described the presidential race as more restrained, saying Trump was «on the road to victory.»

The scandalous statements provoked reproaches even from some of the president's allies. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is an unofficial adviser to Trump, called him a «bad strategic decision» and «bad political decision», while Republican Rick Santorum said he was «very upset» by such statements.

Biden is currently ahead of Trump with 238 of the required 270 electoral votes. Trump has 213 votes, but a victory in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and North Carolina — where he is supposedly in the lead — could help the incumbent get ahead.
