Donald Trump Supporters Are Simultaneously Chanting 'Stop The Count' And 'Count Every Vote'

Footage shows supporters of Donald Trump chanting 'stop the count' as they tried to storm into a Detroit polling centre where ballots were being processed for the US election:

The crowd could be seen gathering outside the TCF Center as workers attempted to tally the ballots on Wednesday (4 November). Security guards had refused entry to any more poll watchers attempting to access the counting room.

Joe Biden - the Democratic nominee - came out on top and won the state of Michigan.

The Detroit Free Press reports that outrage ensued after poll watchers were not allowed to re-enter as the room was over capacity.

Republican supporters claimed that being denied access meant the people inside were disproportionately Democratic, but others in the group noticed Democrats had been kept out as well.

Trump's campaign has launched a lawsuit against Michigan for this very reason, however Michigan Court of Claims Judge Cynthia Stephens has knocked it back.

However, it's a very different story for the Donald Trump supporters who have gathered in Arizona, where Joe Biden has also been declared the winner by the Associated Press with 88 per cent of the ballot counted.

Protestors have also gathered outside a vote counting hall in Maricopa and are demanding that every vote is counted. They're insisting vote counting continue and be very thorough because of the assumption that Trump still has a chance in the state.

The Associated Press declared Biden the winner in Arizona 'after an analysis of ballots cast statewide concluded there were not enough outstanding votes to allow Trump to catch up'.

But Trump supporters are happy to wait until every last ballot is counted.

Biden also won Wisconsin from the Republicans according to the Associated Press, which helped put him on track for victory in the US presidential election. The wins yesterday gave Biden 264 electoral votes, compared to Trump's 214 votes.

Biden appears hopeful he is going to become the 46th President of the United States. He said: "After a long night of counting, it's clear that we're winning enough states to reach 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.

"I'm not here to declare that we've won. But I am here to report, when the counting is finished, we believe we will be the winners.

"But we have had hard campaigns before. We have faced hard times before. So, once this election is finalised and behind us, it will be time for us to do what we've always done as Americans.

"To put the harsh rhetoric of the campaign behind us. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again. To hear each other again. To respect and care for one another again.

"To unite. To heal. To come together as a nation."
