At a press conference on Friday, President Trump promised the American people that he would continue to fight to the end until he achieves—using “all aspects of the law”—a fair and transparent outcome to the presidential election.
During a press conference at the White House on Friday morning, President Trump pledged to his voters and the rest of the American people to fight using the legal route to get clean results, amid allegations of voter fraud in many districts across the country.
“We believe the American people deserve to have full transparency into all vote counting and election certification, and that this is no longer about any single election,” the president said, adding, “This is about the integrity of our entire election process.”
Since May, President Trump has been announcing all along about the scenario that is happening now.
The tens of thousands of mail ballots sent by voters, encouraged by Democrats, caused delays in counting and chaos in most states, making it impossible in many states to confirm the voting data.
“On May 24, the president wrote on his Twitter account: The United States cannot have all Mail-In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history.
“People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries, and ‘force’ people to sign. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary. Trying to use Covid for this Scam!’”

Today, President Trump reaffirmed his words regarding fraud and stressed that he is completely willing to count legal ballots but in no way should illegal ones be counted, he said.
However, “we’ve met resistance for this basic principle by Democrats at every turn.” He added.
“We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law to guarantee the American people have confidence in our government,” he continued. “I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.”
Trump’s campaign has already filed lawsuits in several states since the election began on Tuesday, seeking access to election observation.
A federal lawsuit was also filed in Nevada, urging officials to stop counting “illegal” ballots, alleging that thousands of ballots were sent to non-residents and deceased citizens.
President Trump said he was concerned about the number of complaints about “cheating” of all kinds being done in different parts of the country to gain advantages for Democrats.
Some actions were more rude, such as the vote of thousands of dead people and others more childish, but no less worrying and serious, such as not allowing observers to come within 25 feet of the vote-counting area, as happened in Philadelphia.
“If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.
If you count the votes that came in late—we’re looking at them very strongly. But a lot of votes came in late.” President Trump stated.
