Donald Trump Claims He Has Won The US Presidential Election
| Last updated
Donald Trump has claimed that he has 'won the US presidential election'.
The 74-year-old also said that if he wasn't named the winner, it would be one of the biggest frauds in the country's history.
Speaking at the White House, the incumbent President said: "We were getting ready for a big celebration. We were winning everything.
"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 this election."
He went on to demand that 'all voting be stopped', despite the fact there is no evidence that votes were being made after the polls closed.
Adding: "We will be going to the US supreme court. We want all voting to stop."
This comes shortly after Trump alleged that the Democratic Party had 'stolen votes'.
In a tweet, he said: "We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!"
Millions of votes in key states such as Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania are yet to be counted, with the margins between Trump and Democrat challenger Joe Biden extremely tight.
Earlier in the evening, Biden told his supporters that he was confident of victory.
Speaking to a crowd of people in Delaware, the 77-year-old thanked his fans for their patience.
He said: "Good evening. Your patience is commendable. We feel good about where we are."
Adding: "We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we would go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer!
"But we feel good about where we are. I'm here to tell you tonight we believe we're on track to win this election.
"It ain't over until every vote, every ballot is counted."
One person who won't be sitting in the White House, at least not as President, is Kanye West, who conceded defeat in this year's election.
The singer had hoped of taking the White House in this year's election, but admitted that he had fallen well short.
Sharing a photo of himself in front of the Electoral College map, Kanye said: "WELP KANYE 2024."
But it's not the end of the line for Kanye's political aspirations, as his tweet would suggest, not by a long way.
Last month, he sat down for The Joe Rogan Experience to chat about everything from his presidential aspirations, to his faith and a number of other topics of importance to the controversial star - and admitted that he plans on running again in 2024.
Amid the three-hour discussion, which was mostly dominated by Kanye, the 'Famous' hitmaker revealed he first decided he would run for president after having an epiphany in the shower several years ago.
"It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV awards it hit me in the shower," West shared. "When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul."
