He was responding to a question on if he has a comment yet on the US election and whether President Donald Trump’s assertion that he won the election is helpful or dangerous.
As the 2020 US Presidential race inches to a nail-biting finish, Trump called the election “a fraud on the American public” and said, “Frankly, we did win this election.
He also said he planned to take the battle to the Supreme Court to stop the counting of votes.
According to latest projections, Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden has secured 253 Electoral College votes, just 17 shy of the required 270 mark to win the Presidency.
Trump is trailing with 213 Electoral College votes.
The nail-biting finish hinges on the battleground states of Nevada and Arizona where Biden is in the lead and North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia where Trump is ahead in the polls.
