Recently, current US President, Donald Trump, addressed the media from The White House where he slammed a "corrupt" mail-in voting system, as well as the media and the democrat machine.
This came after the President spent Thursday sharing a series of tweets on his social media, stating "STOP THE COUNT!", "STOP THE FRAUD!" and "ANY VOTE THAT CAME IN AFTER ELECTION DAY WILL NOT BE COUNTED!"
STOP THE FRAUD!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2020
This was the first speech given by the US President after election night. Unlike CNN and Fox news, NBC, CBS and ABC News all cut away from Trump's speech only after about a minute during which he declared: "If you count the legal votes, I easily win."
In the beginning of his speech, which he gave from the White House, Trump claimed the election was "corrupt". He also implied that the Democrats, the media and "big tech" were also trying corrupt the system by altering the results. "If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us. If you count the votes that came in late, we're looking into them very strongly. A lot of them have come in late."

Trump then continued his speech by stating that, there were "now only a few states yet to be decided into the presidential race", and claimed that "voting apparatus are run in all cases by Democrats".
"We were winning in all the key locations by a lot, actually, and then our numbers started miraculously getting whittled away, in secrecy."

Trump vowed to fight the outcome in court as he is holding on to the presidency, which is slipping away as thousands of votes continue to be counted in key battleground states.
"We think there is going to be a lot of litigation as we have so much evidence, so much proof, and it is going to end up perhaps at the highest court in the land. We will see. But we think there will be a lot of litigation because we cannot have an election stolen like this and I tell you, I have been talking about this for many months with all of you. I have said very strongly that mail-in ballots are going to be a disaster. We are hearing absolute horror stories and we cannot let that happen to the United States of America."
Trump also mentioned that there is "not a question of who wins, Republican, Democrat, Joe, myself", and added that, "We cannot let that happen to our country. We cannot be disgraced by having something like this happen. So it will hopefully be cleared up, hopefully soon but it will probably go through a process, legal process, and, as you know, I have claimed certain states and he is claiming states and we can both claim the states, but ultimately I have a feeling judges are going to have to rule, but there has been a lot of shenanigans and we cannot stand for that in our country."
As he came to the end of his speech, Trump added that "All of the recent Biden claimed States will be legally challenged by us for Voter Fraud and State Election Fraud. Plenty of proof – just check out the Media. WE WILL WIN! America First!"
Although Trump made his statement about the election being corrupt, various media houses, as well as other people, shared the sympathy with the president as he is busy losing the last grip he has on his chair in the White House.
CNN host, Jake Tapper, said after Trump’s press conference; "What a sad night for the United States of America to hear their President say that. To falsely accuse people of trying to steal the election, to try to attack democracy that way with his feast of falsehoods. Lie after lie after lie."
