In a speech on the current election results on Thursday, President Trump criticized mail-in voting and said there would be “a lot of litigation” over the potential illegitimacy of these votes.

“We think there’s going to be a lot of litigation because we have so much evidence and so much proof, but we think there will be a lot of litigation because we can’t have an election stolen like this.” Trump said. “I tell you, I’ve been talking about this for many months with all of you. I’ve said strongly that mail-in ballots are going to be a disaster, small very easy elections were disastrous.”

“This is a large scale version and it’s getting worse and worse every day. We’re hearing stories that are absolute horror stories.” He continued. “And we can’t let that happen to the united states. It’s not a question of who wins, Republican, Democrats, Joe, myself.  We can’t let that happen to our country.”

“We can’t be disgraced by having something like this happen. So it will be hopefully cleared up, maybe soon. I hope soon. But it will probably go through a process, a legal process.” He said. “As you know I’ve claimed certain states. He’s claiming states. So we can both claim the states. But ultimately, I have a feeling that the judges will have to rule.  There have been a lot of shenanigans and we can’t stand for that in the country.”
