US President Donald Trump once again blamed his Democratic opponents for tampering with the results of the presidential election with tens of thousands of “illegal” ballots.
The Republican president said, in a series of tweets that he posted on his Twitter account on Saturday morning: “Tens of thousands of votes that were received illegally after eight o’clock in the evening on Monday easily changed the voting results in Pennsylvania and some states where the difference was very small.”
Tens of thousands of votes were illegally received after 8 P.M. on Tuesday, Election Day, totally and easily changing the results in Pennsylvania and certain other razor thin states. As a separate matter, hundreds of thousands of Votes were illegally not allowed to be OBSERVED…

He continued, “As a separate matter, hundreds of thousands of votes were not allowed to be monitored, and this also changes the voting results in many states, including Pennsylvania, where everyone was convinced that we won easily on election day night.”
Trump indicated that his progress in Pennsylvania subsequently “disappeared” while no one was allowed to monitor the state’s vote count for long periods.
