2020 Election: Trump Blasts Vote-Count Delays As "Fraud On The American Public"
As Michael Tracey noted, "We're approaching a nightmare scenario. They're both essentially declaring victory."Trump delivered a statement at 0220ET. Trump says "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."
He said he was getting ready for a "big celebration.We were winning everything and all of a sudden it was just called off."
"We won states that we weren't expecting to win."
"It's also clear that we have won Georgia. We're up by 2.5%"
"Arizona we have a lot of life in that and somebody said -- somebody declared it was a victory for him."
"We've clearly won North Carolina, we're up 1.4%."
"Most importantly we are winning Pennsylvania by a tremendous amount."
"we had such a big night. You look at all the margins we won them by."
"I said: What happened to the election, it's off."
Trump says Democrats "knew they couldn't win, so they said let's go to court."
"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 for the good of this nation."
"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 AM in the morning and add them to the list."
"We will win this."
