Trump declares ‘we will WIN’ and rips ‘egregious’ fraud claiming there were more votes than voters in some swing states

DONALD Trump has declared "we will win" the 2020 presidential election and ripped the "egregious" fraud – claiming there were more votes than voters in some swing states.

The 74-year-old president took to social media on Sunday night to express his faith in an election turnaround and denounce the alleged fraudulent voting that took place in battleground swing states.

Trump wrote to Twitter: "In certain swing states, there were more votes than people who voted, and in big numbers. Does that not really matter?

"Stopping Poll Watchers, voting for unsuspecting people, fake ballots and so much more.

"Such egregious conduct. We will win!"

His tweet comes on the same day the president launched an appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

It also comes after US District Judge Matthew Brann on Saturday shot down claims of widespread irregularities with mail-in ballots.

The November 22 appeal followed a judge's dismissal of Trump's Pennsylvania election lawsuit saying his legal arguments had been "haphazardly stitched together" like "Frankenstein's monster".

The original lawsuit – which was filed on November 9 – had alleged inconsistent treatment by election officials of certain mail-in ballots.

The new appeal is Trump's latest move in his long-winded battle to challenge the results of the 2020 election which declared Joe Biden the winner.

Biden was announced as president-elect on November 7 by major media networks.

President Trump's campaign thanked Judge Brann for "helping us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the US Supreme Court" by throwing out his lawsuit.

But Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani shared a statement from the campaign on Twitter calling Brann an "Obama-appointed judge" and hinted that their case would soon head to the Supreme Court.

"We are disappointed we did not at least get the opportunity to present our evidence at a hearing. Unfortunately the censorship continues," the statement reads.

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign has moved to distance itself from lawyer Sidney Powell on Sunday, releasing a statement that said she is not a member of their legal team.

In a statement signed by Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, the campaign said Powell "is not a lawyer for the president in his personal capacity."

"Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump legal team," the statement continued.

Powell released her own statement in response to the campaign on Sunday, saying that she "understands today's press release." 

"I will continue to represent #WeThePeople who had their votes for Trump and other Republicans stolen by massive fraud,' she continued. 'The chips will fall where they may, we will defend the foundations of this great Republic," she added.

On Saturday, the President slammed Toomey on Twitter over what he called a "witch-hunt."

Trump was responding to a tweet from Fox News presenter Mark Levin about a Wikipedia addition claiming the President is trying to "steal" Pennsylvania's electors.

Election officials across the US have said there is no evidence of fraud that would alter the result of the election.

According to Georgia's secretary of state, the recent hand recount upheld the original outcome produced by the machine tally of votes cast.
