Now this morning a video has been uncovered from this year’s Presidential election in Pennsylvania where the same thing appears to have occured. Nearly 20,000 votes were subtracted from President Trump and added to Joe Biden, a 40,000 vote swing, live on CNN.

Two weeks ago, the Associated Press and several networks called the contentious election race in Biden's favor four days after ballots were cast.

The Trump campaign has since launched voter fraud allegations and accused Biden of essentially stealing the election.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer and longtime defender, held a press conference on Thursday to decry 'massive fraud.' No evidence has been revealed.

But Trump has maintained that he's the election's actual victor and has yet to concede, muddying up the waters on Capitol Hill as the possibility of a smooth transition dissipates.

If Trump's plan to overturn the election fails, this latest G20 summit will be the last of his administration.

The G20, or Group of 20, summit refers to the annual meeting of world leaders to discuss international economic cooperation.

Trump announced the dismissal in a tweet.

Throughout Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz,'s opening remarks, Trump kept his head down and appeared to be looking at something off screen.

Just 13 minutes after the session began, Trump turned his attention to Twitter where he continued to decry voter fraud.

'We will show massive and unprecedented voter fraud, Trump wrote, sharing a statement from GOP Michigan Sen. Mike Shirkey.

Trump later wrote; 'Big voter fraud information coming out of Georgia! Stay tuned!'

Biden was named Georgia's winner after a hand recount was done this week and officials dismissed his voter fraud claims.

Trump shared opening remarks that addressed the US's coronavirus response and economy recovery. Much of the remarks stressed Trump's 'America first' ideology and advocated that Americans should receive the coveted virus vaccine first.

  Pfizer to seek approval from FDA 'within days' after further analysis finds COVID-19 vaccine 95% effective Pfizer and BioNTech are expected to produce up to 50 million doses globally in 2020 and up to 1.3 billion doses by the end of 2021. The news comes days after Moderna, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, announced early Monday its candidate vaccine, mRNA-1273, developed in collaboration with the U.S. government, appeared to be 94.5% effective against COVID-19.

Although Trump left Saturday's summit, the Pandemic Preparedness side-event saw remarks from South Korean President Moon Jae-in, French President Emmanuel Macron and several others.

Trump had previously knocked heads with other world leaders during similar summits, with differences on climate trade and international trade.

In 2018, Trump left the G7 summit in Canada early and rescinded his signature on the conference's final communique.

He reportedly asked aides before the 2019 G7 summit in Biarritz, France, if it was necessary to attend.

The Trump administration was tapped to host the G7 summit this year, but the coronavirus pandemic pushed it to the wayside.

Trump offered to host the event after the election, but CNN reports there's currently no plans for the meeting before G7 presidency shifts to the UK in January.

He is expected to attend another G20 summit meeting on Sunday morning, CNN reports.
