Claiming Victory, Trump Speaks of 'Major Fraud' and Attempt to 'Disenfranchise' Voters

US President Donald Trump accused “sad people” of trying to “disenfranchise” American voters in an address in the East Room of the White House early on Wednesday morning, November 4.

Trump said he was winning several key states, including Pennsylvania, and raised questions about the voting and counting process.

“All of a sudden, what happened to the election? It’s off,” said Trump. “You know what happened? They knew they wouldn’t win, so they said let’s go to court.”

“Frankly, we did win this election,” said Trump. “Our goal now is to ensure the integrity… this is a major fraud on our nation.” He vowed to go to the Supreme Court to stop counting across the US.

Votes continue to be counted in the election, with no winner yet declared. Ballot counting will continue for days or weeks. Credit: Donald J. Trump via Storyful
