The baseless claims come after Trump took a photo of himself playing golf at his course in Stirling, Virginia.
Republicans are thought to have enjoyed more than 200 runs during his four years in office.
Trump issued a statement shortly after the news broke from the PA, accusing his opponent of “pretending to be a winner.”
It read: “We all know why Joe Biden is trying to fake himself as a winner and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they do not want to reveal the truth.
“The simple choice is that this election is not over.
“Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any of the states, any of the highly competitive states leading to mandatory recounts or states with valid and legitimate legal challenges that can determine the ultimate winner for our campaign.
“For example, in Pennsylvania, our legal observers were not allowed meaningful access to watch the counting process. It is the president, not the news media, who decides the legal vote.”
While Trump was playing golf, the president-elect was photographed celebrating victory with his family.
Biden’s granddaughter Naomi Biden shared a photo with the former VP’s grandchildren in a large group embrace on Saturday evening.
But the Trump campaign refused to accept defeat and vowed to take legal action to ensure that “election laws are fully upheld and the right winner is seated.”
President Biden accused Biden of counting ballots “whether ineligible, dead or fraudulent, fabricated or thrown by voters.”
Trump added: “So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until democracy demands an honest vote count that the American people deserve. ”
He missed the historic race Biden Led him to several swing states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Arizona.
Trump has reiterated his baseless claim that he won the election earlier.
He tweeted: “I won this election, a lot!”
Meanwhile, the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told a news conference that the situation was “extremely unsettling.
The civil rights case of the Trump campaign alleges that President Trump was denied the right to a fair number of campaigns.
Giuliani said the case will be filed in federal court.
The former mayor of New York claimed that more than 50 court observers would testify that they had lost the right to check any part of the mail-in ballots.
“It simply came to our notice then. The people of this country have no guarantee that these ballots will be recorded. ”
Campaigners claim that Trump did not make a concession speech and told his allies that he did not intend to concede defeat. CNN Reports.
The Republican believes the election was rigged – despite the lack of evidence – supported by his older sons and some senior aides.
Before going to the golf course today, Trump Angry tweets continued to be posted.
He claimed that “tractors” had blocked the turnout, despite reports that there were independent observers at the centers during the process.
Trump tweeted: “Bad things have happened at a time when legal transparency is being abused and brutally denied.
“The doors and windows blocked by the tractors were covered with thick cardboard so observers could not see into the innumerable rooms. Bad things happened inside. Big changes change the place!”
However, the Trump campaign has acknowledged that the president’s team has no guarantee of supporting the fraud claims, CNN reports.
White House officials are frustrated, even with Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, for feeding the president’s baseless claims.
Bloomberg reports that Trump’s lawyers have launched legal challenges in at least six swing states over allegations of election fraud.
One lawyer said: “We’m going to play until the whistle blows.”
Another source said of Trump: “He is fighting. He thinks fighting is his achievement.”
His campaign announced yesterday morning that they would refuse to accept the election. He said the predictions about the Biden winner were wrong and that the match was far from over.
“This election is not over,” said Matt Morgan, Trump’s campaign chief.
However, many Republican allies fear that his reluctance to concede defeat will tarnish his reputation and move his political career forward.
