During a rally in Georgia on Saturday where US president Donald Trump claimed he won an election that he lost, he said, "If I lost, I'd be a very gracious loser."

The president was campaigning on behalf of Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who are facing Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in the runoff election next month.

Trump began his remarks by falsely claiming he won Georgia in the presidential race, but the state has already certified its election results, declaring President-elect Joe Biden the winner.

He also repeated many of his unsubstantiated claims about widespread voter fraud, falsely claiming that he won the presidential election.

"If I lost, I would say I lost, and I'd go to Florida and I'd take it easy," Trump said.

"But you can't ever accept when they steal and rake and rob," he said, referring to his unproven fraud claims.

Trump has refused to concede the election, even after enough states have certified their results to give Biden the 270 electoral college votes he needs to win the White House.

Trump and his allies have continued to contest the results, filing a flurry of lawsuits in swing states. They have lost the vast majority of their legal challenges, with some still pending.

"You know I thought we were going to easily win," Trump said. "Instead I probably worked harder in the last three weeks than I ever have in my life."
