US President Donald Trump called on Friday his party's supporters and senators who represent it to be "tougher" in dealing with the results of the presidential election.

Trump tweeted that Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, head of the Senate must have to be tougher or else he won't have the Republican Party.

Trump claimed that the Republicans won the presidential election by a large margin.

"Fight for it, don't let them steal the victory from us!"

But last Tuesday, McConnell, congratulated the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, and acknowledged his victory in the presidential election.

On the other hand, the Electoral College vote shows that Biden won the presidential election, and according to the US Constitution, Congress must approve the Electoral College vote on January 6.

The country's current president, Donald Trump, is still not conceding the defeat and has announced more than once that he will continue to challenge the election results through the courts.

A video prepared by Trump's campaign said that the president created millions of jobs, saved the economy from a global pandemic, and led the discovery of a vaccine ... and in return, American citizens rewarded him with more than 74 million votes.

Trump said in the video that "the dead voted in this election and ballot papers bearing Biden's name were added in the middle of the night."

He added that the "American people deserve to know the truth and deserve fair elections and a fair counting process."

However, CNN reported that President Donald Trump informed some of the advisers of his intention to refuse to leave the White House on the day of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.

In a report published last Wednesday, the network quoted US officials as asserting that Trump is "more and more inclined to deny" his defeat by Biden in the elections, even after the electoral college approved the victory of Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
