Donald Trump has attacked Barack Obama's election victory on Twitter, calling it a "travesty" and a "disgusting injustice".

The tycoon, who has made frequent interventions in the election, criticising the president and calling on him to release his college records, wrote: "We can't let this happen" and suggested a march on Washington.

"We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!"

He went on: "Let's fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us." And continued to tweet that the country was in "serious and unprecedented trouble … like never before".

"This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!"

He criticised the electoral college system, tweeting: "The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy."

Trump suggested the House of Representatives, which is still controlled by the Republicans, should "hold our country together", writing:

"Hopefully the House of Representatives can hold our country together for four more years ... stay strong and never give up!"

He also suggested representatives "shouldn't give anything to Obama unless he terminates Obamacare". – © Guardian News & Media 2012
