President Donald Trump continued with allegations of election fraud on Saturday morning when he claimed that "a great deal of information about election fraud" had been discovered in Georgia.
& # 39; Great information on electoral fraud related to Georgia. Hold on! & # 39; Trump tweeted.
Biden was declared the winner in Georgia that week on a hand count.
“I believe the numbers we presented today are correct. The numbers reflect the will of the people, ”said Georgian Foreign Minister Brad Raffensperger on Friday about the result.

"A lot of information on Georgia election fraud," Trump claimed on Twitter
The handcount showed that Biden won with more than 12,000 votes out of approximately 5 million votes cast. This emerges from data released by Raffensperger's office on Thursday.
"I've worked as an engineer my whole life and live by the motto that numbers don't lie," Raffensperger said during a press conference at the State Capitol.
Trump supporters gathered on the steps of the State Capitol in Atlanta for the third time in a row on Friday and held a "Stop the Steal" rally in which InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones took part.
It came after the Georgia County Electoral Board voted to fire its chief clerk Thursday after 2,600 untold ballots were discovered just before the district originally confirmed the results.
Floyd County's board of directors met for about an hour Thursday in a special session that ended with a vote to fire Floyd County's polling officer Robert Brady.
During a nationwide audit earlier this week, election officials found the 600 ballot papers that were not counted in the earlier totals.
Election officials found they did not upload a memory card with electronic counts of those votes on election day, according to the Athens Banner Herald.
As a result of the discovery, election officials had to re-scan more than 8,000 ballot papers to ensure there were no further disagreements.
Of the 2,600 ballots discovered in Republican Floyd County, most voted for Trump.

The new ballot papers reduced Biden's lead over Trump by around 800 votes – still not enough to overcome the Democrat's advantage.
Democrats and Republicans agreed that Brady should have been fired and that the countless ballots were due more to human error than a deliberate attempt to sabotage a free and fair election.
The Georgia result gave Biden 306 votes, a sum that Trump called a "landslide" when the states gave him that number in 2016.
Biden also won victory in key states such as Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Arizona, crossing the 270-vote threshold to give way to the presidency.
However, on Saturday morning, he continued to claim that Michigan was being exposed to fraud.
President Trump also tweeted allegations of election fraud in Michigan on Saturday morning
"Massive election fraud is shown!" He wrote alongside a statement about his meeting with the Michigan legislature.
& # 39; This is true, but much different from what the media reported. We will show massive and unprecedented scams! & # 39;
Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield made the joint statement after flying to Washington to meet with the President. One day, Trump claimed he "won" the election despite trailing Biden by 6 million votes.
However, they said they will "obey the law".
Legislators said they saw nothing that would "change" the outcome of the race – although Trump's attorneys repeatedly claimed it was a "massive" fraud.
Her testimony also included language that fraud should be "taken seriously" and prosecuted if it is discovered.
"We have not yet received any information that could change the outcome of the Michigan elections. As lawmakers, we will obey the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's voters as we said during these elections." Shirkey and Chatfield said in the statement.
It came after protesters chased them upon their arrival in Washington. They say they were invited to the White House Wednesday night.
Trump's allegations of massive electoral fraud have been rejected by a number of judges and refuted by election officials and an arm of his own government's Department of Homeland Security.
Many of the lawsuits in his campaign were thrown out of court.
A coalition of state election officials and the Trump administration's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency have declared the election was the safest in history.
Trump then dismissed the head of his agency, Chris Krebs.
