Biden should not claim presidency wrongfully: Donald Trump

Washington : US President Donald Trump on Saturday told Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden not to "wrongfully claim" presidency.

"Joe Biden should not wrongfully claim the office of the President. I could make that claim also. Legal proceedings are just now beginning!" Trump tweeted.

Mr Trump had been claiming that he has one the elections despite the fact that the vote count is telling an opposite story.

Democrat Joe Biden was on the verge of winning the White House after taking the lead in the potentially decisive state of Pennsylvania, as Trump showed no sign of being about to concede the bitterly contested race.

The Republican party has announced that they will be knocking the Supreme Court's door and ask them to investigate the illegal counting of votes.

Pennsylvania, and its 20 electoral votes, would be enough to vault the 77-year-old Biden past the magic number of 270 votes in the Electoral College, which determines the White House race.

Amid favourable situation on the ground, Joe Biden is planning an open-air address from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.

With 96 per cent of the vote counted in Pennsylvania, Biden had opened up a 14,500-vote lead over the Republican incumbent, according to state election results.

Biden currently has at least 253 electoral votes and is leading in three other states - Arizona, Georgia and Nevada - where ballots from Tuesday's bitterly contested election continue to be counted.
