Donald Trump has appeared to have admitted for the first time that Joe Biden won the US election.

The President incumbent tweeted the admission alongside more unsubstantiated claims that the vote had been "rigged".

Trump is now more than five million votes behind challenger Joe Biden, who has been declared President Elect despite the incumbent's refusal to concede.

Trump continues to insist the election, which he lost by 306 electoral college votes to 232, was rigged.

His attack on the integrity of the US Election has focused largely on mail-in ballots, with his camp also saying that observers were prevented from entering various polling stations and were then made to stand a distance away from the ballot counting machines.

Despite the widespread claims, neither he nor his campaign have yet provided any evidence to substantiate claims of widespread electoral fraud.

Trump's tweet, which appeared alongside a warning from the social media platform stating that claims of election fraud are disputed, read: "He won because the Election was Rigged.

"NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!"
