Democratic challenger, Joe Biden has taken the lead in Georgia with 99% of votes counted.

If Biden takes Georgia, Trump cannot achieve the required 270 Electoral College votes to secure the presidency.

Mr. Biden has a slender lead in Nevada and Arizona and is chipping away at Trump’s advantage in Pennsylvania.

The Democrat now has 253 electoral college votes, while Republican Mr. Trump has 214.

To win the White House, a candidate needs 270.

Mr Biden has appealed for calm as the nail-biting count drags on.

But, US President Donald Trump is again alleging voter fraud in the 2020 US presidential election.

In a media briefing last evening, Mr Trump who claimed to have proof but did not provide any evidence to substantiate the irregularities being alleged, said illegal votes were being used to try and steal the election from Republicans.

The US President is also alleging election interference on the part of entities he’s describing as “big media and big money”.

Mr Trump says the election results may end up in the US Supreme Court.
