Donald Trump Declares Election Fraud, ‘If You Count the Legal Votes I Win’
President Donald Trump promised Thursday to level significant legal action to challenge elections in important swing states after watching his margin of victory whittled away by late-counted ballots for Vice President Joe Biden.
“We think there’s going to be a lot of litigation because we have so much evidence, so much proof, it’s going to end up perhaps at the highest court in the land, you’ll see,” he said. “We think there’ll be a lot of litigation, because we cannot have an election stolen like this.”
The president spoke to reporters at the White House press briefing, demanded transparency in the process, and casting doubt on the Democrat-run voting systems.
“We want every legal vote counted, and I want every legal vote counted,” he said. “We want openness and transparency – no secret count rooms, no mystery ballots, no illegal votes being cast after Election Day.”
The president said he correctly predicted that mail-in ballots opened the election up to fraud and that they would challenge the results.
“Democrat officials never believed they could win this election honestly. I really believe that that’s why they did the mail-in ballots, where there is tremendous corruption and fraud going on,” Trump said.
