‘Never bet against me’: President Trump lays out path to victory

That’s what Pres­i­dent Trump told Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er reporter Byron York on Thurs­day, in his first post-elec­tion com­ments on the state of the 2020 pres­i­den­tial race.

Trump was opti­mistic, lay­ing out a sce­nario in which he pulls out wins in key bat­tle­ground states and gets to the mag­ic num­ber of 270 votes in the Elec­toral College.

“We’re going to win Wis­con­sin,” the pres­i­dent said in the exclu­sive phone inter­view. “Ari­zona – it’ll be down to 8,000 votes, and if we can do an audit of the mil­lions of votes, we’ll find 8,000 votes easy. If we can do an audit, we’ll be in good shape there.”

“Geor­gia, we’re going to win, because now, we’re down to about 10,000, 11,000 votes, and we have hand-count­ing,” he said, refer­ring to a call by Geor­gia’s sec­re­tary of state do per­form a full audit on the elec­tion. “Hand-count­ing is the best. To do a spin of the machine does­n’t mean any­thing. You pick up 10 votes. But when you hand-count – I think we’re going to win Georgia.”

Trump also pre­sent­ed a rosy view on North Car­oli­na, where he leads by more than 70,000 votes. He pre­dicts a win there unless, he said jok­ing­ly, “they hap­pen to find a lot of votes. I said, ‘When are they going to put in the new votes in North Car­oli­na? When are they going to find a batch from Charlotte?’ ”

That leaves Penn­syl­va­nia (where Trump trails 60,000 votes) and Michi­gan (where he’s behind by more than 145,000 votes).
