US President Donald Trump has insisted that he will not change his mind about what he describes as the “massive fraud” of the November presidential election.
Joe Biden, the candidate of the Democratic Party, secured 306 electoral votes — surpassing the 270 votes required to become president — while Trump had 232 votes.
Trump has repeatedly alleged that the election was characterised by “fraud”, and launched series of lawsuits to challenge the outcome.
Speaking in his first TV interview since the election, Trump insisted that the exercise was “rigged”, adding that he will not change his mind even in the next six months.
Trump, who spoke with Maria Bartiromo in an interview by Fox News on Sunday, expressed reservations about Biden’s victory in the election.
“My mind will not change in six months. There was tremendous cheating here,” Trump said.
“If Republicans allow it to happen, you’ll never have another Republican elected in the history of this country, at a senate level or at a presidential level.”
Although some of the lawsuits filed by Trump and his supporters concerning the election have hit the rocks, the US president said they are trying to present more evidence in court.
“We’re trying to put the evidence in and the judges won’t allow us to do it, We are trying. We have so much evidence,” he said.
Although Trump has approved the formal process of transition of power for Joe Biden to assume office at the White House in January, he has refused to concede defeat.
