The former US president, Donald Trump, who lost the most recent White House race to Joe Biden, has refused to accept the outcome of the November 2020 election, continuing to make claims that Biden's victory is the result of massive "voter fraud", APA reports citing Sputnik.

Ex-US President Donald Trump, according to NY Times journalist Maggie Haberman, has been telling "a number of people" that he will gain back his title of US president "by August".

"Trump has been telling a number of people he's in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn't how it works but simply sharing the information)," Haberman tweeted, attaching a video of a CNN report on ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn appearing to suggest a Myanmar-like coup in the US.

Haberman went on to note that it was not "happening in a vacuum", pointing at how Trump "faced the possibility of an indictment from the Manhattan DA". The journalist also said that the former president has been "laser focused" on election audits.
