Mike Pence refuses chance to support Donald Trump's accusations about voter fraud

US VICE PRESIDENT Mike Pence has declined the opportunity to openly support Donald Trump's accusations of electoral fraud.

On Saturday, the election was called in favour of Joe Biden, but Trump is crying corruption and has suggested that "fake ballots" were counted in order to secure Biden's victory.

He insists he was cheated out of a second term in office and says he plans on challenging the result of the election in the Supreme Court and it's understood his legal team are working on a dossier to present.

On Tuesday though, Mr Pence had the chance to publicly back Trump's claims, but declined.

He was approached by a reporter in Washington DC who asked him: "What evidence is there of widespread voter fraud?"

But Pence refused to provide an answer.

He also refused to answer questions about whether or not Mr Trump should concede defeat.

The last comments made by Mr Pence on the subject of the election was last Thursday, when he tweeted: "I stand with President @realDonaldTrump. We must count every LEGAL vote."

Since then though, Pence hasn't explicitly backed Trump's seemingly baseless claims of electoral fraud.
