President Trump is standing firm in his belief that he will win the 2020 presidential election and said his campaign will “not allow corruption to steal” votes, as he made his point in a press conference Thursday and in a series of tweets. “If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” the president said. “We can’t allow anyone to silence our voters or manufacture results.”

The president also addressed many polling places that wouldn’t let “legally permitted observers” watch the ballot counting. “This is a case where they’re trying to steal an election—trying to rig an election,” he said.

Trump went on to say that this needs to go to the highest levels of the American judicial system. “I easily WIN the Presidency of the United States with LEGAL VOTES CAST. The OBSERVERS were not allowed, in any way, shape, or form, to do their job and therefore, votes accepted during this period must be determined to be ILLEGAL VOTES. U.S. Supreme Court should decide!”

In a tweet following the press conference, Trump addressed the fact that a number of seats in the U.S. Senate had also flipped. “So now the Democrats are working to gain control of the U.S. Senate through their actions on John James, David Perdue, and more. Would End the Filibuster, ‘Life’, 2A, and would Pack and Rotate the Court. Presidency becomes even more important. We will win!”

In a follow-up tweet, the president blasted Twitter: “Twitter is out of control, made possible through the government gift of Section 230!”

Twitter has been continuing to flag a number of the president’s tweets, saying “Some or all of the content shared in this tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
