Early Wednesday morning, Nov. 4, President Trump gave a speech from the White House and said he is confident he has won re-election.
However, he is concerned that Democrats are attempting to steal the election, about which he has been warning Americans for months.
During his speech, the president flagged going to the Supreme Court to prevent Democrats from committing electoral fraud to help Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden win, reported the New York Post.
“Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight. And a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it,” President Trump said in a speech from the White House East Room that began at 2:21 a.m.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election. So our goal now is to ensure the integrity,” Trump said.
“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list, OK? We will win this, and as far as I’m concerned, we already have,” he said.
Before giving his speech, the president had sent out a tweet that was instantly deleted by Twitter.
The president tweeted, “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”
As the Post reported, a large number of mail-in ballots amid the CCP Virus (Chinese Communist Party) pandemic delayed results in the three states. In Pennsylvania, the state Supreme Court allowed mail-in ballots arriving at election offices by Friday to be counted, even without legible postmarks.
Election Day proved to be strong for the president, debunking many polls that predicted a landslide win for Biden. The Midwest battlegrounds Michigan, and Wisconsin, are still undecided.
The president was ahead in Georgia and North Carolina at the time he spoke and had a huge victory in Florida.
If the results are tight, an intense legal struggle will likely ensue, with Pennsylvania becoming pivotal to the national outcome. Republicans are likely to argue the state court erred.
The U.S. Supreme Court turned down a pre-election request to intervene.
Biden, in a midnight speech in Wilmington, Delaware, said, “We feel good about where we are. We really do. I’m here to tell you tonight that we believe we’re on track to win this election.”
