Trump doesn’t accept Biden’s win, plans on contesting result

"We don't know that right now, and for the President to go out there and claim that without any evidence of that is unsafe", Santorum said.

In his remarks, Trump railed against the process of mail-in voting, which saw a significant uptick this election cycle as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

"There's simply no evidence anyone has shown me of any widespread corruption or fraud", Toomey told "CBS This Morning".

"I've said very strongly that mail-in ballots are going to end up being a disaster", he said. Cordes said there is no indication of a substantive number of illegal votes cast, and said Trump's reference to votes arriving late was "another falsehood".

The president spoke publicly for the first time since election night, stepping in front of a White House podium to spread baseless accusations of voter fraud. Aides said Biden's public appearances on Wednesday and Thursday - during which he called for patience and calm as the votes are counted - prompted Trump to push harder to do the same, though some had hoped to avoid the type of speech the President ultimately delivered.

Trump's campaign continued to insist that the president has a way to win, citing pockets of Republican support yet to be counted in such close races.

Moments after Pennsylvania was called, the Associated Press also called Nevada, meaning even if Biden had not won Pennsylvania, he would reach 270 Electoral College votes. "Beyond that, I don't have anything to say", McConnell said.

While CNN kept Trump on the air, a chyron displayed under him said, "Without any evidence, Trump says he's being cheated".

"You can't stop the count in one state and decide you want the count to continue in another state".

Counting for votes received by November 3 was continuing, but roughly 20 states allow ballots to be counted if postmarked by November 3 but received in the days afterwards.

"So everyone who's listening, do not be quiet, do not be silent about this".

Secretary of State Katie Hobbs told CNN on Thursday afternoon that if Maricopa County maintained the pace it had set Wednesday - tallying 140,000 ballots in a single day - "we will have a much more clear picture of where things stand" in the presidential contest in Arizona by Friday evening. "Join together and let's stop this".

His campaign has filed multiple lawsuits in the States of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Nevada and has demanded a recount of votes in Wisconsin.

"It's time to clean up this mess & stop looking like a banana republic!" he added, before deriding the "total lack of action" from Republicans, naming some - such as SC senator Lindsey Graham, usually a staunch Trump ally.

"There's tremendous amount of litigation generally because of how unfair this process was", Trump said earlier this week. Graham, a conservative who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, vowed to "fight like hell" to stop "a radical agenda, " while recognizing that, "if Biden does win, he's president, " and Republicans will "try to work with him when we can".

Trump had no other public events Thursday.

Maryland governor Larry Hogan sharply criticised the president, saying there was "no defence" for his comments "undermining" America's electoral process, and that no one was more important than democracy.

The state has around 11 per cent of its vote to count. After Nevada election officials released a tranche of votes Thursday, Biden's lead crept up past 12,000.

Trump delivered his statement before reporters in the White House briefing room and left without taking questions.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, urged "everyone to be patient" as results come in. His office declined to comment after Trump's address Thursday.

The president then came out late in the day claiming that he had won the election before officials started counting the mail-in ballots.
