Donald Trump, in the face of Joe Biden’s widening lead as states continue to count mail-in and absentee ballots, is now telling states to stop counting votes.
“STOP THE COUNT!” he wrote in all-caps on Twitter.

STOP THE COUNT!

His campaign has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia and is expected to announce a lawsuit alleging fraud in Nevada.
His campaign is also demanding a recount in Wisconsin because, a campaign staffer said, there were “irregularities in several Wisconsin counties.”
But he can’t just tweet at states to stop counting legal ballots, so Twitter made fun of his impotent cries to just give him the crown already.

But your supporters are protesting with guns in Arizona to continue counting votes there. Are you telling them to stop? If we stop counting votes, then Biden wins the election.

We must count every vote in every state. That doesn’t mean count the votes in Arizona and Nevada where Biden is leading but stop counting the votes in Pennsylvania, Georgia, and North Carolina where Trump is leading. Count all the votes in all 50 states. Do not disenfranchise us.

Oh, Donald Donald Donald. Have some dignity in defeat. People won't be able to get this image of you on your knees groveling out of their heads. Look at you, Donald. Your tears are smearing that orange makeup and two of your Bobby pins have come loose. Chin up, old chap.

His comments echo those made early Wednesday morning, where he falsely claimed victory during a speech at the White House.
“So we’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court,” he said. “We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at four o’clock in the morning and add them to the list.”
