The President of the United States Donald Trump has issued warning to former Vice President Joe Biden against celebrating victory yet, saying that counting of votes still continues.
Trump said: “Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also.
“Legal proceedings are just now beginning!,” Trump said in a tweet on Friday evening.
According to to Trump, he had “such a big lead in all of these states late into election night, adding that his leads miraculously disappear as the days went by”.
Biden has overtaken the president in the swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and Pennsylvania where Trump was initially ahead.
“Perhaps these leads will return as our legal proceedings move forward!” he added.
As of the time of filling this report, Biden was ahead with 264 electoral college votes against Trump’s 214, according to the Associated Press tally.
Matt Morgan, counsel to the campaign, said Biden’s “false projection” as the winner was based on results in four states where the president is still in the race.
“Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail,” Morgan said.
