It comes as Donald Trump described the election as “a major fraud”.
The President won key states including Florida, but prematurely claimed victory, as a handful of battleground states remain too close to call.
He has told supporters at an early morning White House event he’ll go to the Supreme Court to stop the counting of any more ballot papers.
Joe Biden’s campaign says Mr Trump’s statement about shutting down counting is “outrageous” and “unprecedented.”
The Democrat has addressed the public, saying he believes he’ll be victorious.
“I’m not here to declare that we’ve won. But I am here to report, when the counting is finished, we believe we will be the winners,” he said.
