Trump has however, made unsubstantiated claims that he has been cheated out of winning the US election.

Speaking to Mandy Wiener on the Midday Report, International Relations scholar and political commentator Dr Oscar van Heerden says it is critical that Biden has taken the lead in Georgia as it is showing that those absentee ballots were from the Democrats.

The thing about Trumps comments about illegal votes, is him trying to desperately give an impression that there is something wrong with the very electoral system that voted for him in 2016.
