President Trump downplayed Biden campaign campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon’s claim that “under no scenario” could Trump be declared a victor on Election Night during a Tuesday interview with “Fox & Friends.”

“Well, that was a weird quote. I agree with you. That was a very weird quote. And I don’t know what she meant, except maybe she is talking about the very strange decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court that allows extra time and a lot of other things,” Trump said. “It allows for chaos, frankly. And so maybe she is talking about that. Maybe you can blow out Pennsylvania so you don’t have to do it.”

TRUMP SAYS SUPREME COURT DECISION ON PENNSYLVANIA BALLOTS IS ‘DANGEROUS’

Trump said he was not “intimidated” by the Biden campaign’s stance and said he doesn’t know who Biden’s campaign manager is.

“I have no idea who she is. She has something to do with his campaign, I guess. No. It was a strange quote. It was not a smart quote either, I think,” he said.

Recent decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court have allowed Pennsylvania and North Carolina to extend their deadlines for election officials to receive ballots.

“The decision on Pennsylvania was a horrible decision,” Trump said Tuesday. “There’s just no reason to go beyond the date. People should put their ballots in early. You don’t have to wait until the end. Why are they waiting till the end? They have it for a long time. They put their ballots in early and there’s plenty of time to count it, tabulate it and do it through a normal course.”

TRUMP CAMPAIGN BRACING FOR LEGAL BATTLE OVER ELECTION, FORMING ‘COALITION’ OF LAWYERS

Both measures reached the Supreme Court amid challenges from Republicans. Under the current rulings, Pennsylvania officials will be able to count ballots received up to three days after the election. In North Carolina, the deadline has been extended nine days to Nov. 12.

Both states are battlegrounds where turnout could be a major factor in whether President Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden pick up the states’ electoral votes.

Dillon discussed possible election victory declarations on Monday. 

“Trump will try to go out there and declare victory in an unfounded way,” Dillon said, noting that Biden will “address the American people.”

“We’re not really concerned what Donald Trump says on Election Night because what he says might have nothing to do with the reality of it,” Dillon said. “We’re not going to get distracted by it.”
