US President Donald Trump has claimed victory in three states that haven’t been called officially, as well as Michigan which has been called for his Democrat challenger Joe Biden, claiming ballot irregularities.
Claiming Pennsylvania, Georgia and North Carolina, Trump said his campaign had a “big” lead in all three. “Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact, there was a large number of secretly dumped ballots as has been widely reported!” he tweeted.
…..there was a large number of secretly dumped ballots as has been widely reported!

Media outlets entrusted by social networks to make election calls have not yet called any of those states for either candidate, aside from Michigan which was declared for Biden moments prior to Trump’s announcement.
In a press conference in Philadelphia, the president’s campaign claimed to have evidence of widespread irregularities concerning the counting of mail-in ballots, millions of which have been cast in this election.
Republican observers said they were not allowed to attend the counting in several Democrat urban strongholds, thanks to whose votes Biden claimed lead in Michigan and Wisconsin.
