President Donald Trump has attacked legitimate vote counting efforts in remarks from the White House early Wednesday, suggesting attempts to tally all ballots amounted to disenfranchising his supporters.
His remarks were laced with misleading statements and outright falsehoods and amounted to an assault on the Democratic process.
He insisted that states where vote tallies currently show him leading should be called in his favor, despite significant outstanding votes yet to be counted.
He said he was preparing to declare victory earlier in the evening.
Trump claimed a fraud was being committed.
Saying he would go to the US Supreme Court, Trump said he wanted “all voting to stop.”
