In a Twitter rant posted on Saturday morning (approximately 5am his time), the current US President also said that "hundreds of thousands" of votes were "illegally not allowed to be observed".

The tweets have been flagged by Twitter, meaning they appear alongside the message "Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process."

His thread in full reads: "Tens of thousands of votes were illegally received after 8 P.M. on Tuesday, Election Day, totally and easily changing the results in Pennsylvania and certain other razor thin states. As a separate matter, hundreds of thousands of Votes were illegally not allowed to be OBSERVED.

"This would ALSO change the Election result in numerous States, including Pennsylvania, which everyone thought was easily won on Election Night, only to see a massive lead disappear, without anyone being allowed to OBSERVE, for long intervals of time, what the happened.

"Bad things took place during those hours where LEGAL TRANSPARENCY was viciously & crudely not allowed. Tractors blocked doors & windows were covered with thick cardboard so that observers could not see into the count rooms. BAD THINGS HAPPENED INSIDE. BIG CHANGES TOOK PLACE!"

While no official victor has been declared in the election, Joe Biden is edging closer and closer to being named US President.
