In what looked like a concession to defeat, United States President, Donald Trump, has alleged foul play in the ongoing presidential election.
Writing on his Twitter page, Mr Trump said: “They are finding Biden votes all over the place — in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan. So bad for our Country!”

Mr Trump had earlier raised alarm over how he was magically upstaged in key states by his Democrat opponent Joe Biden.
In a post on his verified Facebook page, Mr Trump said the reason for his disappearing electoral fortune was the “dumping” of “surprise ballot”.
“Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled. Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted.
“VERY STRANGE, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!”
On Twitter, the president also raised a similar alarm: “How come every time they count Mail-In ballot dumps they are so devastating in their percentage and power of destruction?”
Recall that the Democrat candidate Joe Biden had surged ahead as results of the United States Presidential election trickled in this morning.
As of 5:00am, Biden had secured 209 Electoral College votes to President Donald Trump’s 118.
For a candidate to win, he must secure 270 Electoral College votes.
Results from battleground states with 96 Electoral College votes that would determine the final outcome were being expected.
