President Donald Trump denied a report that he will prematurely declare himself the winner of the 2020 presidential election on Tuesday night if it appears he is ‘ahead’ of Joe Biden, even if a ton of Electoral College votes are still unknown.

‘No, no that was a false report,’ he told reporters after he landed in North Carolina for his third rally of the day.

But he did warn he is ready to send in lawyers to states like Pennsylvania to dispute ballots.

‘We’re going in the night of – as soon as the election is over – we’re going in with our lawyers,’ he said.

He and the Republican Party have been launching lawsuits in states extending the deadline to accept mail-in ballots.

‘If people wanted to get their ballots in, they should have gotten their ballots in long before that,’ he said.

The president has repeatedly called for a result to be declared on election night.

‘I don’t think it’s fair that we have to wait for a long period of time after the election.’

Trump’s team is preparing to claim that mail-in ballots counted after Nov. 3 are evidence of election and voter fraud and will accuse Democrats of attempting to steal the election.

The president’s campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said, ‘This is nothing but people trying to create doubt about a Trump victory. When he wins, he’s going to say so.’

Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller predicted Sunday that Trump ‘will be re-elected handily and no amount of post-election Democratic thievery will be able to change the results.’

He then accused that if Trump were to lose, it would be due to ‘hijinks or lawsuits or whatever kind of nonsense’ from Democrats.
