Donald Trump took to Twitter to accuse the Democratic Party of trying to “steal” the US elections.
The Republican candidate, who posted out of context, said that once the polls are over, no votes can be cast.
The news came shortly after challenger Joe Biden finished speaking to fans in Delaware at around 12:45 p.m. (5.45 a.m. UK time).
He announced that he and his team believed the Democrats were “on track” to win the US election.
Donald Trump wrote: “I’m going to make a statement tonight. A big win!
“We’re BIG, but they’re trying to steal the choice.
“We will never allow it. Votes cannot be cast after the polls are closed!”
There is currently no evidence that the Democrats are trying to steal the elections.
The hustle and bustle of activity came shortly after one of the biggest swing states, Florida, declared for Trump.
It was classified as a decisive victory for the incumbent US president – and counts 29 votes.
Republicans’ confidence in victory on the main battlefield proved justified.
Trump spends much of his time in the Sunshine State at his Mar-a-Lago residence and has entertained world leaders there.
Previously, Joe Biden had foiled Donald Trump’s attempt to win the state of Minnesota from the Democrats, but it was the president who stuck to Ohio, a state that has picked the winner of every presidential election since 1960 when he opposed Richard Nixon’s candidacy the winner John supported F Kennedy.
