US President Donald Trump has said that he will push for votes that came in after Election Day to not be counted.

This comes amid continuing uncertainty over the winner in the election since several battleground states have not yet announced their results. These states are North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Alaska, and Arizona.

On Thursday, the Trump campaign announced that it would file a lawsuit in Nevada over alleged voter fraud.

During the election campaign, the Democrats repeatedly called on citizens to vote by mail or early in-person voting, citing numerous restrictions in place amid the coronavirus pandemic. By the time Election Day arrived, nearly 100 million people had voted early. Trump has repeatedly opposed this way of voting, saying that “mail-in ballots are very dangerous – there’s tremendous fraud involved”.
