President Donald Trump has said that “if the legal vote is counted, I have won.” Addressing a press briefing at the White House, he made the claim at a time when many states are still counting votes.
President Trump reiterated his claim of voting fraud but did not provide evidence of his claim.
He said that if illegal votes were counted, they could “snatch elections from us”.
He said that postal ballot is a ‘corrupt’ system, and it corrupts even a person who is not corrupt by nature.
President Trump said it was “surprising” how large the number of postal votes was one-sided.
Remember that Democrats are more likely to use the postal vote, in fact about 75% of the votes cast in favour of Biden. In contrast, President Trump in his campaign urged his supporters not to vote by post.
President Trump added that “a lot of legal action has been taken because this whole process is so unfair.”
It should be noted that his election team has filed legal petitions to stop the counting of votes in several Battle Ground states.
In the press briefing at the White House, he also accused Republican observers of keeping them out of the counting process.
He said the Republican Party has emerged as a party of American working people while accusing the Democratic Party of backing major technology and media companies.
President Trump said he has received more votes from Latin Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans and Native Americans than any president since 1960.
He concluded by saying that both he and Biden could claim victory, but “I think the judges will have to decide.”
After the briefing, he left the room without answering any questions.
Twitter warned some of the messages shared by Donald Trump are disputed and might be misleading.
“Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
All of the recent Biden claimed States will be legally challenged by us for Voter Fraud and State Election Fraud. Plenty of proof – just check out the Media. WE WILL WIN! America First!

Kathy Boockvar’s briefing
Meanwhile, Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar addressed a news conference today, saying the overwhelming majority of votes would be counted by Friday.

She said the number of late-arriving votes was “significantly lower” than expected.
She said she was not aware of any recent allegations of voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
It should be noted that Trump has reportedly filed another lawsuit in Pennsylvania, according to which Republican representatives are not being given access to the counting process.
Pennsylvania is the most important state in the US presidential election, and President Trump has the upper hand.
