WASHINGTON, November 8. /TASS/. The incumbent president of the US Donald Trump said on Saturday again that he had won the election gaining 71 mln ‘legal votes’.

Meanwhile, the observers were not allowed into the counting rooms in a number of states, the president added. “Bad things happened which our observers were not allowed to see. Never happened before. Millions of mail-in ballots were sent to people who never asked for them!” he wrote. The Twitter administration added a note to that statement several minutes later: “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
