Washington, United States:
US President Donald Trump’s campaign said on Friday that “this election is not over” as his challenger Joe Biden edged closer to victory in the cliffhanger race for the White House.
The statement came after Biden overcame the president’s lead in the key battlefield state of Pennsylvania, putting him in a position to win his 20 electoral votes.
A victory in Pennsylvania would give Biden the presidency, as he currently holds at least 253 of the 270 necessary electoral votes.

“This election is not over,” Campaign Counsel General Matt Morgan said in the statement, making further allegations of improprieties.
“Joe Biden’s false projection as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from definitive.”
Trump has made a slew of unproven fraud allegations, including Thursday night, and Twitter has slapped warning labels on a series of his tweets.
