Trump Says He Would Win 'If You Count the Legal Votes'

Nov.05 -- President Donald Trump questioned the credibility of the U.S. election while talking at the White House. "If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us,” Trump said. Trump took no questions after the news conference. Bloomberg News reports there is no evidence of widespread illegal voting in the election.

DONALD TRUMP: Good evening. I'd like to provide the American people with an update on our efforts to protect the integrity of our very important 2020 election. If you count the legal votes, I easily win. 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.

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 media, big money, and big tech as everybody saw. We won by historic numbers.

And the pollsters got it knowingly wrong. They got it knowingly wrong . We had polls that were so ridiculous, and everybody knew it at the time. There was no blue wave that they predicted. They thought there was going to be a big blue wave. That was false. It was done for suppression reasons, but instead there was a big red wave.
