    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump is calling for the recount of votes in the state of Georgia to be stopped, hinting at the fact that there is room for fraud, as matching signatures are not being shown.

    The Trump campaign has filed multiple lawsuits in several states, including Pennsylvania, MichiganGeorgiaArizona and Nevada, claiming voting irregularities. On Saturday, Trump wrote on Twitter about the evidence of widespread voter fraud.

    In another tweet, Trump specified that the "hand recount taking place in Georgia is a waste of time. They are not showing the matching signatures. Call off the recount until they allow the MATCH. Don’t let the Radical Left Dems STEAL THE ELECTION!"

    On Wednesday, Trump's team said it had launched a lawsuit alleging irregularities, incompetence and unlawful vote counting in the state of Michigan.

    On Thursday, Wisconsin's chief election official, Meagan Wolfe, said that the state was preparing for a potential ballot recount.

    On Friday, Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar's office said that there would be no recount of votes in the state, as the margin between the two candidates is too large. Joe Biden has secured 49.86 percent of the votes against Trump's 48.9 percent, according to the state's latest tally.

    Major US media outlets claim that Joe Biden is the winner in the November 3 presidential election. Biden himself has already delivered a national address declaring his victory. However, the election results are disputed and have not been certified yet. Trump has said he won but the victory was stolen from him via massive fraud. Trump is seeking to audit and recount the vote in several US states and has filed multiple lawsuits in state and federal courts.
