Donald Trump calls US elections a ‘major fraud'

The suspense is taking its toll on US President Donald Trump as votes are counted and Americans wait to learn who will lead them for the next four years.

Trump's Twitter timeline has been flooded with rants and accusations of fraud and violation of America's democracy since the polls closed on Tuesday.

In the early stages of vote counts, Trump was optimistic that he would win the presidency. He even went as far as declaring a false victory despite millions of votes still uncounted. He said his legal team would take his case to the US Supreme Court but did not specify what they would claim.
