The Liberal Democrats have warned any attempts to undermine the democratic process in the US must be condemned by the UK Government.
The call comes in response to Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab failing to condemn Donald Trump's incorrect claims of victory in the US election.
Liberal Democrat Foreign Affairs spokesperson Layla Moran said:
“We must not come to any premature conclusion about the election result, regardless of what the President or his campaign are saying.
“Now is the time for peace and patience in the US, and for trust in the democratic process.
“Any attempt to undermine that must be condemned by the UK Government and the international community in the strongest terms.”
