Donald Trump Jr has doubled down on his father’s accusations of voter fraud, which he described as “battles” that Trump would “fight each and every one … to the death”.

Speaking from Georgia, Trump Jr lashed out at the Democratic party and claimed they were blocking people from watching the votes being counted.

“I cannot think of a possible reason other than they plan on cheating,” he said.

“I think the number one thing that Donald Trump can do in this election is fight each and every one of these battles to the death. So that we get full transparency in the process. And every one of the Democrats should welcome this, unless they are actually cheating.”

In his speech, Trump Jr insisted counties that had 75,000 and 123,500 mail-in ballots had to be false because he said there was not a single vote for Trump.

“Does anyone believe that this is possible? Because it is not! It is a statistical impossibility and yet it is happening not just once but over and over again. This is the kind of nonsense that has to stop,” he said.

The comments come just hours after Trump Jr fired off a tweet calling for his father to wage “total war over the election”.

Twitter quickly hid the tweet for spreading false information about the election, NY Post reported.

Donald Trump has filed law suits in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Nevada demanding further access for campaign observers at locations where ballots are being counted.

But judges in Georgia and Michigan have already dismissed Trump’s legal campaigns in their respective states.
