Trump called the last election “a big cesspool.” According to him, he should have won in all the “hesitant” states. He also called the postal vote a “disaster.” Trump says he has a lot more votes than it takes to win.
“Joe Biden didn’t get 80 million votes,” Trump said. “I got 74 million votes and everyone thought it was over” on election night. And then voting by mail began “.
“This election is a complete scam,” Trump said.
Trump has spoken sharply about a number of former senior intelligence officials, including James Comey, Andrew McCabe and John Brennan. Speaking about the “Russian investigation”, the president again described it as a fake.
Trump said he has done more in office than any other president. He mentioned, in particular, the financial and economic situation in the country. Regarding the political situation, Trump said about the danger, emanating, in his opinion, from the radical left.
When asked about the actions of his team of lawyers, the President noted that it is difficult to bring legal cases initiated by his campaign headquarters to the Supreme Court..
Thus, the president continues to insist that the elections were held with massive violations..
Officials that followed the electoral process say otherwise.
Earlier, Trump said he could leave the White House if the electoral college votes for his rival Democrat Joe Biden.

The Trump campaign has previously filed a lawsuit against the Pennsylvania government, claiming that district electoral commissions “haphazardly” processed ballots received in the mail, and asked District Judge Matthew Brann to suspend the process of official recognition of the election results..
Some districts allowed voters to correct minor inaccuracies in their ballots, while others did not..
Brann dropped the case on November 21, saying the suit was based on “stretched legal arguments” and “speculative accusations.” The judge said he did not have the power to strip “even one person, let alone millions of citizens”.
In an appeal, Trump’s campaign said it was focusing on one question: whether Brann acted lawfully by forbidding the authors of the lawsuit from changing its content after it was filed. In particular, Trump’s lawyers attempted to add previously dismissed allegations that the court violated the plaintiffs’ right to due process..
