President Donald Trump is ready to go to war with Democrats if they try to steal this presidential election.
With concerns of voter fraud shadowing November 3, Trump said that his campaign is “going in with our lawyers” after the polls close Tuesday night, according to the Washington Examiner.
Trump says he won’t declare victory prematurely
Trump has insisted that Americans should know the outcome of this bitter contest on Election Night, suggesting that Democrats could try to steal the election after the fact through fraud.
Trump told reporters Sunday that he won’t be backing down from a legal battle, even as he dismissed a report from Axios, amplified by Democrats, that he wants to declare victory prematurely. “No, no, that was a false report,” Trump said.
“We’re going in the night of. As soon as the election is over, we’re going in with our lawyers,” he added.
With a massive number of people voting by mail this year, and many states allowing ballots to come back days after Election Day, both campaigns are lawyering up to fight over votes in critical states like Pennsylvania.
“We don’t want to have Pennsylvania, where you have a political governor, a very partisan guy. … We don’t want to be in a position where he’s allowed, every day, to watch ballots come in. See if we can only find 10,000 more ballots,” Trump said.
Biden planning to claim victory?
Ironically, after weeks spent accusing Trump of wanting to disrupt the “peaceful transition of power,” it sounds like Biden may do exactly that.
Axios published another report on Election Day which claims that Biden, wary of becoming the next Al Gore, plans to declare victory on Election Night if the media calls the election for him and address the nation “as its new leader.”
But at this point, President Trump and his allies are hoping for a victory so unequivocal that any Democratic shenanigans won’t make a difference.
Trump adviser Jason Miller speculated Sunday that Democrats could try to “steal back” the election after November 3, but he predicted an insurmountable lead for Trump nevertheless.
“We believe we’ll be over 290 electoral votes on election night. So no matter what they try to do, no matter what kind of high jinks or nonsense they try to pull off, we’ll still have enough electoral votes to get President Trump reelected,” he said.
