Trump says his election battle is NOT OVER because he doesn’t want US to have Biden as ‘illegitimate president’
DONALD Trump said that his election battle is “not over” and he doesn’t want the United States to have an “illegitimate president.”
‘s comments, which he made in a Fox and Friends interview that aired Sunday, come even as the Electoral College is set to cast their votes – to officially elect Joe Biden – on Monday.

“It’s not over,” Trump told Fox. “We keep going and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases.”
The president claimed that he won Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia, and noted that he has an ongoing case in Wisconsin.
These assertions come even as the Supreme Court tossed out a case brought by Texas alleging voter fraud in several key swing states last week.
Speaking to Fox’s Brian Kilmeade at the Army-Navy football game in New York on Saturday, Trump continued to claim that the election had been “rigged” and several states had been “robbed” from his campaign.
“It was a rigged election. It was a sham and a shame,” the president said.

Asked if he was worried about a divided country, with his own supporters claiming voter fraud and Biden’s claiming that Republicans are disregarding democracy, Trump said he’s more worried about the US “having an illegitimate president.”
Trump claimed that local Democrats “outsmarted” their Republican counterparts to rig the election.
“We’re like a third world country,” Trump said.
Despite repeated claims from the Trump campaign of widespread voter fraud, at this time there has been no concrete evidence presented that suggests the election was rigged.
Trump said that his team will “speed it up as much as we can, but you can only go so fast,” when discussing their legal pursuits.
When asked if he would attend Biden’s inauguration in January, Trump would not say.
“I don’t want to talk about that,” he said.
Trump’s supporters remain skeptical about the election results as well.
Thousands descended on Washington, DC, on Saturday for a second “Million MAGA March” in protest.
The president’s recently-pardoned national security advisor Michael Flynn spoke at the event and urged the crowd to keep the “faith” that the election results could still be challenged.
Infowars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones also spoke, and said that Biden “will be removed one way or another.”
Violent clashes broke out between Trump supporters – including the far-right group, the Proud Boys – and counter-protesters.
At least four people were stabbed and nearly a dozen were arrested amid the unrest.
