US Elections: Trump's statement in Full - BBC News
With millions of legitimate ballots left to count, Donald Trump has declared an unsupported victory.
"Frankly we did win this election," he claims, speaking in subdued tone. He suggests - without evidence - that election "fraud" has occurred.
"This is an embarrassment to our country," he says, adding that he plans to go to the Supreme Court to fight election results.
Millions of votes in the 2020 election are yet to be counted and the president has no credibility in claiming a victory.

Trump has taken the podium in the White House's East Room.
He starts by thanking his family, and the millions of supporters who turned out for him tonight.
"We were getting ready for a big celebration," he says. "We were winning everything."
Taking a triumphant tone, Trump celebrates his big win of the night in Florida.
"We didn't win it, we won it by a lot," he says.
He also claims a lead in Pennsylvania - just like rival Joe Biden did earlier on election night. It is still too early to determine a winner in the state.
