With just a few battleground stats left to be decided in this election, President Trump stated this morning that he will involve the Supreme Court to resolve any ballot controversies.
On Twitter, President Trump tweeted the following:
We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!

Currently, millions of votes are still being counted in states like Georgia, Michigan and North Carolina. No clear winners have been announced by election officials in any of these states as of yet. President Trump insists that any ballots received after Election Day should not be counted.
As Fox News reports:
Trump added that he predicted a legal battle, and said he has “been saying this since the day I heard there would be tens of millions of ballots sent,” referring to the unprecedented scale of mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment on our country,” Trump said, referring to the votes not being called in key states.
“We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court,” Trump said. “We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4:00 in the morning and add them to the list.”
He added: “It’s a very sad moment. To me, this is a very sad moment, and we will win this.”
At this time, these key battlegrounds remain undecided: Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania
