As “counting” of the remaining “votes” continued in key states for another night, President Trump declared that he is the ‘legal’ winner of the election, and that Democrats are ‘trying to steal the election from us.’

“We think there’s going to be a lot of litigation because we have so much evidence, so much proof, it’s going to end up perhaps at the highest court in the land, you’ll see,” Trump said, adding “We think there’ll be a lot of litigation, because we cannot have an election stolen like this.”

“We want every legal vote counted, and I want every legal vote counted,” Trump urged, adding “We want openness and transparency – no secret count rooms, no mystery ballots, no illegal votes being cast after Election Day.”

“Democrat officials never believed they could win this election honestly. I really believe that that’s why they did the mail-in ballots, where there is tremendous corruption and fraud going on,” Trump proclaimed.

Trump declared that “shenanigans” at Democrat run counting stations is central to the corruption, stating “If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.”

“The voting apparatus of those states are run in all cases by Democrats,” Trump said. “We were winning all the key locations by a lot actually, and then our numbers started miraculously getting whittled away in secret.”

“Our goal is to defend the integrity of the election. We will not allow the corruption to steal such an important election or any election for that matter,” Trump emphasised.

Instead of broadcasting the President’s speech, several leftist media outlets either cut the feed or just had the images playing in the background while they talked about how Trump has lost:

Elsewhere during the speech, Trump noted that it is he who has the backing of the American people, while Biden is backed by ‘special interests.’

“At the national level, our opponents’ major donors were Wall Street bankers and special interests,” Trump said, adding that “Our donors were police officers, farmers, everyday citizens”:

Trump’s claim is backed up by analysis that shows Biden’s donors were predominantly upper class people, particularly those with careers at big tech firms.

Trump’s contributions came predominantly from working- and middle-class Americans, including those working in the Military, the Marines, and in law enforcement. The President’s largest pool of support came from drivers, construction workers, machinists, farmers, and plumbers.
