"Stop the count… stop the count," shouted alleged Trump supporters as they chanted on videos posted to Twitter on Wednesday.
One clip showed a large, animated group trying to push its way into a hall in Detroit where ballots were being counted. Guards successfully blocked the door.
In one other video, election workers inside the hall were seen stacking up pizza boxes against a window to obstruct the view. In another, workers were seen putting up large white boards.

Trump on Wednesday tweeted that he was "winning big" in Pennsylvania, another key swing state, although election commission officials said there were millions of additional ballots yet to be counted. On election night, Trump tweeted that "votes cannot be cast after the polls are closed".
Later on Wednesday, the Trump campaign announced lawsuits to stop ballot counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, saying that Republican observers were being denied access to counting locations.
CNN called the state of Michigan for Biden later in the day. With 97% reporting, Biden was ahead 49.8% to 48.6%.
