The text of President Donald Trump’s statement on the election outcome:
We all know why Joe Biden is so impulsive to misrepresenting himself as the winner, and why his media allies are trying to help him so badly: They don’t want to reveal the truth. The simple truth is that this election is not over yet. Joe Biden is not the winner of any country. , Not to mention which of the heavily contested countries have gone to the mandatory recount, or which of our campaign faces legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate winner. In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not allowed meaningful access to witness the count. The legal vote decides who is the president, not the media.
“Starting Monday, our campaign will start our case in court to ensure full adherence to election laws and legitimate winner seats. The American people have the right to a fair election, that is, count all legal votes, and no illegal ballot papers count. This is the only way to ensure the public’s confidence. It is still shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree to this basic principle and wants votes counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by unqualified or deceased voters. Only the party involved in the commission of wrongdoing is the one who unlawfully removes observers from Sorting room – then they fight in court to block their arrival.
“So what is Biden hiding? I won’t rest until the American people get the honest votes they deserve and that democracy demands.”
