With a handful of battleground states still up for grabs and the election’s outcome in doubt, President Trump said that the Supreme Court would become involved if necessary to resolve ballot controversies.
Fox News further reports:
Trump added that he predicted a legal battle, and said he has “been saying this since the day I heard there would be tens of millions of ballots sent,” referring to the unprecedented scale of mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment on our country,” Trump said, referring to the votes not being called in key states.
“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court,” Trump said. “We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4:00 in the morning and add them to the list.”
He added: “It’s a very sad moment. To me, this is a very sad moment, and we will win this.”
Almost simultaneously, Democrat nominee Joe Biden told his supporters he was “on track to win this election.”
