WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) – During a visit to his campaign workers on the day of the presidential election in the USA, incumbent Donald Trump was confident of victory. “I think we will have a great night,” said Trump on Tuesday in Arlington, near Washington. The numbers he sees from the states of Texas, Arizona or Florida are very good. The latest polls, however, see the Republican president behind his Democratic challenger Joe Biden – both nationwide and in several crucial “swing states”.
When asked whether he had already prepared speeches in the event of victory or defeat, Trump said he was not thinking about it yet. But he hopes that the result will be fixed quickly. Trump continues: “Winning is easy. Losing is never easy. Not for me.” The results from the first states are expected on Wednesday night (CET) after 1:00 a.m./scb/DP/he
