US President Donald Trump, on Wednesday, faulted the lead by Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate, in the country’s presidential election.
Biden, a former vice-president, has polled 238 electoral college votes ahead of Trump, incumbent and Republican nominee, who has polled 213 so far.
Also, Biden has secured 69,701,955 votes ahead of the president who has so far polled 67,140,462 in popular votes.
However, in the last two hours, Trump has sent out a series of tweets suggesting that there has been alleged fraud in the process.
“They are working hard to make up 500,000 vote advantage in Pennsylvania disappear,” he said, adding that the discovery of votes for Biden in some states is “bad for our country”.
The US president said it is “very strange” that the margin by which the Democratic presidential nominee is leading is increasing after mail-in ballots were counted.
“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!,” Trump tweeted.
In another tweet he said: “How come every time they count Mail-In ballot dumps they are so devastating in their percentage and power of destruction?”

Earlier, Trump said he would head to the US supreme court because “they are trying to steal the election.”
There are reportedly over 20 million votes yet to be counted in the polls.
