WASHINGTON (AP/WJW) — President Donald Trump is claiming victory in states that haven’t been called in the election.

“They can’t catch us,” he told supporters at the White House.

Neither Trump nor Democrat Joe Biden has reached the 270 Electoral College vote threshold.

Trump is insisting by tweet that “Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!” even though, in multiple states, ballots can be counted if they arrive after after Election Day.

“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,” the president said.

Votes are still being counted in several states.

“We want all voting to stop,” President Trump said.

He says he’s taking the election results to the Supreme Court.

The results can’t be certified until the votes are counted and are usually not certified right away.

Many of the battleground states have yet to be called, including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

Trump won Florida, Iowa and Ohio, while Biden carried New Hampshire and Minnesota. It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.
