The 74-year-old said he would approach the Supreme Court to stop all voting.

“We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list,” Trump said.

Trump’s decision to approach the Supreme Court does not come as a shock as the president has over the past months called the integrity of the election into question and refused to strongly commit to a peaceful transition of power.

A historic haul of mail-in votes has delayed the official announcement of the winner for longer than usual.

A significant number of the mail-in ballots is expected to be in Biden’s favour, and he’ll become America’s 46th president if he crosses 270 electoral votes.
