WASHINGTON (PNN) - November 13, 2020 - President Donald Trump on Thursday outlined his path to victory in the 2020 election, showing a readiness to challenge bogus claims by mainstream media that former Vice President Joe Biden’s has large leads in several key states.
“Never bet against me,” Trump said, in his first post-election interview with Washington Examiner reporter Byron York.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, Democrats, and corporate media figures continue pressing the president to concede the election so that a speedy transition of power can take place, even though as of today, Congress has officially stated that there is currently no President-elect and no Vice President-elect, and no state has yet certified election results. This means that all those claiming Biden won are putting out false information, fake news, and may be liable for criminal prosecution for seeking to influence the results of the election by their lies.
Trump has correctly indicated he is unwilling to concede the election as long as votes are being counted and challenged in court.
To start with, Trump argued, he could win Wisconsin, where his campaign has requested a recount of the election.
Arizona, he continued, could find 8,000 votes for him if the campaign could get an audit of the votes cast in that state.
A hand recount of the votes in Georgia could also gain up to 11,000 votes.
“Hand counting is the best,” he said. “To do a spin of the machine doesn’t mean anything. You pick up ten votes. But when you hand count - I think we’re going to win Georgia.”
Trump estimated that he won North Carolina but joked that Democrats might find a bunch of new Biden votes from urban areas like Charlotte.
The campaign has strong cases in Michigan and Pennsylvania, he said, where Republican campaign observers were excluded from watching the counting process, which legally invalidates those ballots. Trump estimated that millions of unobserved votes could have gone through the counting process.
“They wouldn’t let our poll watchers and observers watch or observe,” Trump said, “That’s a big thing. They should throw those votes out that went through during those periods of time when [certified Republican observers] weren’t there.”
