U.S. President Donald Trump has claimed without evidence that bad things’ happened at counting centres in Pennsylvania and other states, where his overnight lead on Tuesday, against Joe Biden, went up in smoke.
In four tweets now flagged by Twitter police as conveying false and misleading information, Trump alleged a lot of things.
He claimed among others that “Tractors blocked doors & windows were covered with thick cardboard so that observers could not see into the count rooms”.

“People were screaming STOP THE COUNT & WE DEMAND TRANSPARENCY (As Legal Observers were refused admittance to count rooms)!
