Trump, who had refused to concede he lost the election, said this in a tweet on Sunday.
The latest vote tallies gave the Democrat Biden a clear win in the state-by-state Electoral College that decides the presidency, with 306 votes against Trump’s 232.
US networks projected on Friday that Biden won the state of Georgia to get 306 votes in the Electoral College but 270 votes are required for election.
“He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation and bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, and more!” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
Despite his own intelligence officials’ declaration that the election was “the most secure in American history,” Trump shows no sign of giving up their quest to get the results overturned.
However, Biden’s newly appointed chief of staff, Ron Klain, told MSNBC late Thursday that moves by Trump to block the incoming administration from access to confidential government briefings posed a growing risk.
Top Republicans remain outwardly loyal to Trump, but there appears to be widening discomfort within the party over the blocking of Biden’s transition team, AFP reports.
