Trump releases desperate statement denying Joe Biden presidential victory
Joe Biden has won the presidential election in the United States of America, with a current total of 273 electoral college votes after winning Pennsylvania.
Donald Trump has predicted in a predictably childish way, still claiming foul play, saying he will challenge Biden's victory in the courts.
The statement begins with a ludicrous conspiracy theory: "We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don't want the truth to be exposed."
Donald Trump tried to declare a false victory hours after polls closed.
"The simple fact is this election is far from over,", it continued.
"Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor."
No evidence has been presented to contest the legitimacy of the vote counting process.
"Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated."
