President Trump, who made the declaration on Wednesday morning at the White House, said he is poised to ask the Supreme Court to halt all vote-counting even as ballots remain uncounted.

He claims that a “sad crowd of people” is trying to take away the right to vote from his supporters by committing election fraud.

“Millions of people voted for us tonight. A very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people,” the president said. “And we won’t stand for it.”

“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win the election. As far as I am concerned we already have won it,” Mr Trump said to cheering supporters.

“We want the law to be used in a proper manner, so we’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop,” Mr Trump added. “We don’t want them finding any ballots at four in the morning and adding them to the list.”

He spoke after Mr Biden told his own supporters he is “on track” to become the 46th president – although he did not declare victory or signal a high court fight.
