Trump Falsely Claims Victory In 2020 Election During White House Briefing

Description:

In his first public comments in a week, President Trump falsely claimed he won the election during a briefing on drug prices.


President Trump early Wednesday falsely declared victory in the presidential race against Democratic nominee Joe Biden even as votes were still being counted and said he would be going to the Supreme Court in an attempt to stop ballot counting.
US President Donald Trump gave a speech at the White House falsely claimed to have won the 2020 US presidential election over Democrat opponent Joe Biden with millions of votes left to be counted. Many states don't begin counting absentee and early-voting ballots until polls have closed, which could account for a 'red mirage' in the vote count. Trump threatened to take his case before the Supreme Court.
In an extraordinary 2:30 a.m. appearance at the White House, President Trump falsely claimed the pending outcome was "a fraud on the American public" and "embarrassment on our country."
The president falsely claimed victory early Wednesday as millions of votes were still being counted. The Morning Joe panel discusses. Aired on 11/04/2020.
