President Donald Trump claimed “surprise ballot dumps” had destroyed his illusory leads in some swing states.
The president demanded overnight that states stop allowing votes where he was leading, threatening to take his claims to the U.S. Supreme Court, and then Wednesday morning suggested that he was a victim of fraud.
“Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled,” Trump tweeted. “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!”
