President Donald Trump said he was confident he will get to 270 electoral votes and win the election in a Thursday interview with the Washington Examiner’s Bryon York.
“Never bet against me,” Trump told the Examiner. “I see evidence, and we have hundreds of affidavits.”
In the phone interview initiated by Trump, the Republican president talked about the different battleground states in which his campaign has contested the election results.
“We’re going to win Wisconsin. Arizona — it’ll be down to 8,000 votes, and if we can do an audit of the millions of votes, we’ll find 8,000 votes easy,” he said.
“Georgia we’re going to win, because now, we’re down to about 10,000, 11,000 votes and we have hand-counting. Hand-counting is the best.”
Trump added that he will also win North Carolina “unless they happen to find a lot of votes.”
The optimism continued for Michigan and Pennsylvania, but the president said his campaign is focusing on protesting the exclusion of his campaign’s observers in those battleground states.
“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 [Trump observers] weren’t there. We went to court, and the judge ordered [the observers] back, but that was after two days, and millions of votes could have gone through. Millions. And we’re down 50,000.”
He is down by about 21,000 votes in Wisconsin, 11,000 votes in Arizona and 14,000 votes in Georgia.
Biden also leads Trump in Michigan by 148,382 votes and in Pennsylvania by 59,050 votes.
