From top: challenger Joe Biden and US President Donald Trump; Swing states as of 5.04pm today
“We knew because of the unprecedented early mail-in vote that it was going to take a while. We’re going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying votes is finished and it ain’t over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted. But we’re feeling good. We’re feeling good about where we are.”
US Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight. And a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election. So our goal now is to ensure the integrity. We’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. 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, OK?
“We will win this, and as far as I’m concerned, we already have.”
US President Donald Trump this morning.
More as we get it.
