President Trump declared victory in multiple key battleground states early Wednesday, even though it remained unclear who had the votes to win, as Trump hinted the White House would push the Supreme Court to rule over disputed ballots, warning that a “very sad group of people” was trying to “disenfranchise” voters.
The president, speaking from the East Room of the White House, alongside first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence, thanked his supporters and touted “record” turnout.
“I want to thank the American people for their tremendous support. 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 will not stand for it,” Trump said. “We won’t stand for it.”
The president was able to declare victory late Tuesday in battleground states of Florida, Ohio, and Iowa, and was able to clinch a big electoral win in traditionally red Texas, among other states, Fox News projected.
But, a number of key battleground states, including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia and North Carolina, were too close to call.
“We won states we weren’t expecting to win,” Trump said. “Florida, we didn’t win it, we won it by a lot.”
“We won the great state of Ohio, we won Texas…It is also clear that we have won Georgia,” Trump said, despite that race not yet being called. “They’re never gonna catch us. They can’t catch us.”
The president said the same of North Carolina, saying he has “clearly won,” and again, that “they can’t catch us,” despite that race, too, not yet being called.
The president, and his campaign throughout the night, complained about the race in Arizona, which Fox News called for his rival, Democrat Joe Biden. The campaign, and the governor of Arizona, argued that some Election Day votes still needed to be counted.
“Arizona, we have a lot of life in that,” Trump said. “Somebody declared victory, and maybe it will be, but certainly there were a lot of votes out there that we could get. We’re now just getting into Trump territory and that could be overturned.”
The president shifted to Pennsylvania, and said he was “winning” in the state “by a tremendous amount of votes,” despite votes still being counted there.
“All of a sudden, I said, what happened to the election? It’s off,” Trump said. “You know what happened. They knew they couldn’t win, so they said, let’s go to court.”
Trump added that he predicted a legal battle, and said he has “been saying this since the day I heard there would be tens of millions of ballots sent,” referring to the unprecedented scale of mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment on our country,” Trump said, referring to the votes not being called in key states.
“We were getting ready to win the election, frankly, we did win this election,” Trump said, adding that he wanted to “ensure the integrity” of the vote, and ensure the law is “used in a proper manner.”
“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court,” Trump said. “We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4:00 in the morning and add them to the list.”
He added: “It’s a very sad moment. To me, this is a very sad moment, and we will win this.”
“As far as I’m concerned, we already have won it,” Trump said.
It is 2:36 a.m. as I write this.
When the Democrats first started sending out unsolicited ballots, I knew that the opportunity for massive fraud in this election would be very high.
Right now, Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania appears to be insurmountable.
However, given the historic fraud which has occured in the Democratic counties around Philadelphia in previous Presidential Elections, anything is possible.
The President was right in shouting to the high heavens when the Democrats started sending out those ballots.
He saw exactly what I and others saw: the Democrats, in the throes of their out-of-control TDS and lust for power would do anything, legal or illegal, that they could do to steal the election and secure it for their frail and demented candidate, Joe Biden.
For the past four years, the Democrats have pulled every lowdown political trick and nefarious scheme which they could think of in order to override the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.
This morning’s political chicanery was the goal of the Democrats from the moment they conceived the idea to send out all of those unsolicited ballots.
They gamed the system.
Karl Rove just said on Fox News that President Trump needs to “trust the system”.
Given the fact that he was elected the first time because average Americans did NOT “trust the system”, Trump needs to follow the advice of a very wise Republican President who received the very first vote I ever cast in an election:
“TRUST BUT VERIFY!”
Until He Comes,
