Economist and adviser to President Donald Trump, Stephen Moore, said the President is “a little grouchy” over the results of the election, The Hill reported.
During an interview with John Catsmatidis on his radio show on WABC 770 AM, Moore expressed optimism that Trump would get reelected despite almost every major media outlet calling the race for President-elect Joe Biden.
“[Trump] really did deserve in my opinion to be reelected. And he may yet be reelected when we count every vote.”
Biden was projected to win the 2020 election earlier this month after the former vice president clinched the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania.
However, Trump has since refused to concede and his campaign has mounted several legal challenges in states to top vote counts and certifications. The President and his allies have alleged that the election results are invalid due to widespread voter fraud, with some like White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany stating that the President “expects to attend his own inauguration” in January, 2021.
Moore went on to predict that the Senate will maintain its GOP majority, which will act as a check on a Biden administration.
“You’ve got a goalie to protect the net and make sure those pucks don’t fly and we don’t get a major tax increase,” he said.
Control of the upper chamber will ultimately be left up to the two runoff races in Georgia in January between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican incumbent Sen. David Purdue and Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Democrat Raphael Warnock.
As it stands, the Democrats have 48 seats in the upper chamber, while Republicans have 50.
If Democrats flip the two seats in Georgia, they would have control of the upper chamber with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris‘s vote.
