As he accused ballots cast against him as “illegal” in an address from the White House, Donald Trump insisted that he “win easily” the US election.
No evidence exists to substantiate any accusations of corruption or fraud being carried out during the election process.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” Mr Trump said. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.”
“I already decisively won critical states including Florida, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio,” he said.
“It is despite interference from a big-money, big tech.”
“We won by historic numbers and the pollsters got it knowingly wrong,” Mr Trump said.
“They thought there was going to be a big blue wave, that was done for suppression reasons, instead there was a big red wave.”
“These phoney polls were designed to keep our voters at home.”
“In Pennsylvania, Democrats have allowed ballots to be received three days after the election and we think much more than that,” he added.
