Donald Trump is taking legal action to stop vote counting in Michigan as the race to the White House continues.

The lawsuit claims Republicans have not been provided with “meaningful access to numerous counting locations” to observe counting as is guaranteed by law.

As it stands, Joe Biden holds 253 electoral college votes to Donald Trump’s 214.

The President has won key states including Florida but last night prematurely claimed victory, as a handful of battleground states remain too close to call.

Joe Biden’s campaign says Mr Trump’s statement about shutting down counting is “outrageous” and “unprecedented.”
