CTV News shared Trump's statement. "The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots," it said.
He opened the statement by saying that Biden is “rushing to falsely pose as the winner” and that the media is assisting these efforts. “Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”

"I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!" he wrote.
