Trump Supporters Refuse to Accept Defeat, Call Election Fraud in Atlanta

Skirmishes broke out in some cities.

According to a text-statement released by Trump on the media announcement of the election results, his campaign intents to pose a legal challenge to the projected election victory, with no mention of the US president conceding.
