'It's statistically impossible that I lost': Donald Trump posts 46 minute rant about election fraud and claims dead people voted

DONALD TRUMP has repeated what appear to be baseless claims about voter fraud in the presidential election last month in a bizarre 46-minute rant on social media.

The President claimed it was "statistically impossible" for him to have lost, and continued his plea to the Supreme Court to overturn Joe Biden's victory.

"This may be the most important speech I've ever made," Trump began, before detailing his accusations of vote-rigging.

The video was released by the White House on a number of their social media platforms, and was posted less than 24 hours after Attorney General Bill Barr said there wasn't enough evidence of fraud to overturn the result.

Over the past few weeks, Trump's legal team has seen numerous challenges to the election result rejected by a raft of judges who have continually insisted that they have no evidence on which to base their claims.

But Trump appears reluctant to give up the fight, as he enters his penultimate month in the White House.

During the video, he made repeated claims of fraud and even suggested that dead people had voted, citing mysterious anomalies in voting machines and alleged corruption in swing states.

"This election was rigged. Everyone knows it," Trump said.

"I don't mind if I lose an election, but I want to lose an election fair and square. What I don't want to do is have it stolen from the American people.

"For months leading up to the election, we were warned that we should not declare a premature victory. We were told repeatedly that it would take weeks, if not months, to determine a winner, to count absentee ballots and to verify results.

"It was all very, very strange.

"Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint a winner even while many key states were still being counted."

Trump's legal team are still mounting challenges to vote counts across the country, but time is running out for them pose a serious challenge to Biden's win, with the Electoral College set to meet in less than a fortnight to officially certify the election result.
