Donald Trump: I’ll say I won on election night

Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

Sometime during or after the second week of October, Donald Trump tells Reince Priebus he plans to claim victory for himself on election night.

His former chief of staff Reince Priebus told a friend he was stunned when Trump called him around that time and acted out his script, including walking up to a podium and prematurely declaring victory on election night if it looked like he was ahead.

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller’s speechwriting team had prepared three skeleton speeches for election night for all the possible scenarios: a clear victory, a clear loss, and an indeterminate result. But the speechwriters knew that if Trump was facing anything other than a resounding victory, the words would be his alone. This president would never admit defeat or urge patience.
