Trump: ‘As Far As I’m Concerned, We Already Have Won’

Videos by OutKick

As OutKick expected, the 2020 presidential election wasn’t resolved in the first night.

While a handful of states remain undecided and many ballots remain uncounted, President Donald Trump declared in a late night/early morning White House news conference: “As far as I’m concerned, we already have won.”

Per Fox News’ map, Joe Biden currently leads Trump, 237-213. Fox News is the only network to call Arizona for Biden, a controversial decision it stands by.

Thus, Trump’s path to victory is narrow but not impossible.

Trump must now pick up either Michigan or Wisconsin in addition to winning Pennsylvania. With a smaller early lead, Wisconsin is less likely for Trump. This, of course, is only if Trump holds leads in both North Carolina and Georgia. If not, it’s game over.

He seemed to be on his way to victories in both. However around midnight, the New York Times changed its forecast to a Biden win in Georgia. Fox News still suggests that Trump is likely to win Georgia.

And then there is Pennsylvania. The key state to the 2020 election could take days to count. So the chaos could continue.

“We believe we’re on track to win this election,” Biden announced in a surprise speech Wednesday morning.

Trump made his own statement well after 2 a.m. Eastern time, from the White House.

“Frankly, we did win this election,” Trump said and referred to the process of continuing to count votes as a “fraud” and “an embarrassment to our country.”

The president reiterated: “As far as I’m concerned we already have won.”

At least one Republican wondered aloud about the veracity of his contention.

  1. 1)The Arizona flip made this a game. If Trump pulled AZ it would be extremely difficult for Biden to overcome.

    2) Going forward I presume NV goes blue, GA/NC go red (I don’t see how this late in the game GA will somehow flip). That leaves 3 states left to determine the election: WI, MI, and PA.

    3) If all that holds up, either candidate will win the election by taking 2 of the last 3 states up for grabs. Right now Trump is in the driver’s seat. If he can hold on to leads in WI & MI then PA and their delayed mail in shit won’t matter.

  2. It is great to see Trump fight like hell after all the abuse he has taken the last 4 years. This will be very ugly and I have real concerns with the Gov and AGs in MI and PA trying to steal this thing. My over/under on lawsuits is 6.5 by noon eastern time on Wednesday. Trump will win AZ by 9 pm on Wednesday (Fox you suck). MAGA!!!

  3. Could be for the best to slow play the thing, had Trump won outright last night Lord knows what kind of debauchery would of happened in cities like Portland and Seattle, idiot liberals literally destroying property of other idiot liberals. As this stretches out of the next few days, it will lessen the sting and hopefully provide a relatively sober and measured response from whichever party loses. Needless to say we’re all a lot more worried about the response from Biden supporters.

    Very surprised that Roy Cooper won NC Governor, just goes to show how powerful the Democrat party is in their ability to get unproductive American’s to the polls, and how the media manipulates the narrative, convincing young people and retired metro area residents that Cooper is some type of hero for his COVID response.

  4. Is it not absolutely ridiculous that in 2020 we can’t count all the freakin votes for an election the night of the election closing? This should not be complicated. All voters should have to their ballots to their state by 7 PM the night the election polls close, period. This extension of time to receive mail in ballots is ridiculous. Voters have had weeks to get their votes in or early vote, so there is no excuse. Ron DeSantis fixed it in Florida and they went off without a hitch. The last few elections Florida was in this position but DeSantis fixed it. Can we hire him to fix every state process? Apparently he’s the only one who knows what’s going on.

  5. couldn’t quite understand when Biden spoke on Tuesday Trump wasn’t even going to need Pennsylvania thought Joe is not living in reality he sees the same thing I saw then his body language with his comments we will have to wait and count the votes then every thing changed vote counting stopped in some states North Carolina with a 100 percent in doesn’t declare a winner good leads in Wisconsin and Michigan disappear. When Nevada goes Biden that will put him at exactly 270 Trump gets Pennsylvania Georgia Noth Carolina giving him 267 Biden knew something we didn’t I now get why he came off so confident will never believe there wasn’t fraud

  6. In the history of the planet having a lived in Europe Asia and Latin America this is undisputably the most important election ever. The Democrats are committing massive fraud and Felonise in many states and if they are not staffed now the tech oligarchs and social media guards will crush people like ourselves as they do not allow freedom of thought. Furthermore they will send all of the jobs to China and America will become a waste land. This is truly the last Stand for America Trump2020. This is far beyond partisan politics but for the future of our nation.
