  • The allegations of election manipulation are still in the room. Trump wants to take action against it and sue.

Update from November 8th, 9:40 p.m .:Trump does not give up, as quiet as it has been around him the last few days, the more he is posting this Sunday, the day after the US election is decided. For one thing, he is now also accusing the media of not having to determine who will be the next president. He also describes them as "lame" that is, lame. "Since when does the Lamestream media determine who will be our next president?", said Trump on Twitter.

US election: Trump does not want to accept defeat - and tweets accusations of fraud again

Update from November 8th, 3:45 p.m .: The last few hours it was rather quiet about the still incumbent President Donald Trump. But now he is betting multiple tweets starting in which he subsequently called the lawyer Jonathan Turley and Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker and arguably informal adviser to Donald Trump.

We get a large number of affidavits that prove electoral fraud. We have a long history of electoral problems in this country. In Pennsylvania there was an order from a "Supreme Court" judge who forced them to separate the votes that came in after the legislative deadline. This requires the intervention of Judge Alito. This involved a large number of votes. We are talking about a systematic problem with authentication. The type of authentication has a big effect on the overall CHOICE. And what worries me is that there have been over a hundred million postal votes in cities like Philadelphia and Detroit that have a history of electoral problems (to put it mildly) @Jonathan Turely, "Trump tweeted.

.... how these ballots were authenticated, because if there's a problem in the system about authentication, that would seriously affect the ENTIRE ELECTION - And what concerns me is that we had over a hundred million mail-in ballot in cites like Philladelphia. ..

.... Where it mattered, they stole what they had to steal. @newtgingrich

After the 2020 US election: Will Donald Trump hold the traditional “concession speech”?

Since 1896 it has been a tradition in the USA for the losing candidate to congratulate his opponent on their victory and, with the admission of defeat, clear the way for the next term of office.
