As the nation continues waiting to find out who will win the 2020 presidential contest, President Trump on Thursday delivered remarks from the White House. 

"If you count the legal votes, I easily win," Trump said. "If you count the illegal votes they can try to steal the election from us, if you count the votes that came in late," he said.

The president said that election polling was weaponized to harm his candidacy.

"As everyone now recognizes media polling was election interference, in the truest sense of that word," Trump said. "By powerful special interests, these really phony polls...were designed to keep our voters at home, create the illusion of momentum for Mr. Biden and diminish Republicans' ability to raise funds. They were what's called suppression polls, everyone knows that now." 

"So it will be hopefully cleared up, maybe soon, I hope soon," he said. "But it'll probably go through a process, a legal process and as you know I've claimed certain states and he's claiming states...but ultimately I have a feeling judges are gonna have to rule. But there's been a lotta shenanigans and we can't stand for that in our country."
