Democrats have warned in recent weeks that Trump could seek to distort the results of the election and take advantage of delays in the reporting of vote counts, which are expected to take longer to process due to the expansion of mail-in balloting amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Axios reported Sunday that Trump had told confidants he planned to declare victory prematurely on election night if early results showed him ahead, even if all the votes were not yet counted. The White House has denied that report.

Jason Miller, a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, mirrored the Axios report in an interview Sunday with ABC News’ “This Week,” saying that the president “will be ahead on election night, probably getting 280 electoral [votes], somewhere in that range, and then they’re going to try to steal it back after the election.”
