With a record number of early and mail-in ballots still to be counted in crucial swing states, the tension has been rising, with Trump saying he wanted the vote count stopped after falsely claiming victory on election night.

How come every time they count Mail-In ballot dumps they are so devastating in their percentage and power of destruction?

Supporters of Trump have also been vocal about vote-counting too, calling for it to cease in some states but to continue elsewhere.
