President Donald Trump spoke publicly about the 2020 presidential election for the first time since late at night on Election Day, in a powerful speech that projected optimism while maintaining that legal avenues would be pursued to fight election rigging.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us,” President Trump said.
“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 added. “I’ve already decisively won many critical states, including massive victories in Florida, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, to name just a few. We won these and many other victories despite historic election interference from Big Money, Big Media, and Big Tech.”

On Wednesday, the Trump campaign claimed victories in Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina, and Michigan:
President Donald announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that the Trump campaign is claiming electoral victories in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of Georgia, the State of North Carolina, and the State of Michigan, in an unprecedented decision that rejects the technocratic censorship of Big Tech and the mainstream media.
“We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead,” President Trump announced on Twitter.
“Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact, there was a large number of secretly dumped ballots as has been widely reported!” the President added.
Results for the remaining disputed states may not be publicly announced until next week.
