President Trump, through his campaign, issued a statement Friday insisting the American people “deserve to have full transparency into all vote counting and election certification,” even though campaigns have the ability to have representatives watch the ballots be counted.
“We believe the American people deserve to have full transparency into all vote counting and election certification, and that this is no longer about any single election,” Mr. Trump said in his statement. “This is about the integrity of our entire election process. From the beginning we have said that all legal ballots must be counted and all illegal ballots should not be counted, yet we have met resistance to this basic principle by Democrats at every turn. We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law to guarantee that the American people have confidence in our government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.”
The ballots that are being counted now are legal ballots that were cast according to the law, and there are plenty of measures in place to make sure that is the case. The Trump campaign has not presented any credible evidence of widespread voter fraud.
