Americans continued to flock to polling stations in the United States, where some protested the continued ballot counting in the campaign battles between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.
The demonstrations take place while the country and the world wait for the election results of four states. Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Arizona. They also come when Biden made a brief appearance on Friday in Wilmington, Delaware, where he stated in a late night speech that he and his runner-up Kamala Harris "would win this race."
Biden has just 17 votes ahead of winning the presidency, while Trump lags behind with 213 votes.
If Biden wins Pennsylvania, he'll get 20 votes and no longer need Arizona or Nevada. But if he wins Arizona by 11 votes on the electoral college and Nevada by 6 votes, he won't need Pennsylvania anymore.
Trump and Biden supporters both met in Philadelphia when the Democrat was getting further ahead of the president. Biden currently has a 0.4 percent lead in the state.

On Friday evening, Justice Samuel Alito announced that all Pennsylvania counties must separate post-polling ballot papers after Republicans appealed to exclude those votes from the total.
Trump's campaign had filed a motion to intervene in a state supreme court ruling that allowed election officials to count postal ballot papers that were postmarked by Tuesday election day and served by Friday.
The mood between the two parties was generally felt in other protests across the country – in cities like Los Angeles, Washington DC, Detroit, Atlanta and Las Vegas.

A temporary security fence in front of the White House is covered with signs. Many call President Donald Trump a "loser" and are calling for an exit from the Oval Office.
Federal police officers announced that a non-scalable fence was added outside of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to increase security before Election Day.
Since then, dozens of posters have been pasted over the entire perimeter.
One section of the fence consists of seven posters that form a rectangle with the word "loser" written in different colors and fonts.
Another section has a pink sign that says "Eviction Notice" next to another that says "Every Vote Count," referring to President Trump's efforts to prevent votes from being counted in states he was ahead of .
With more votes in the direction of Biden in Pennsylvania and Georgia, the former vice president could be elected president-elect by Saturday and receive more than the 270 electoral votes required to secure the presidency.
