AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): The president spoke in the middle of the night last night. He's upset with how this is all playing out. We know his complaints about what's happening in Pennsylvania. When you look at what's happening there, and you think about the American people, we still don't know the results. And, look, I know we are used to waiting. This has happened before. But when people wake up this morning, they wanted to know who the next president of the United States is going to be. And when you have some states that are saying look, you can vote early for six weeks, you can vote early for a week. Then after the votes are cast, then we're going to take a few days to vote, is that fair to the American people and how do we know that this is all legitimate, that these counts are legitimate? 

COREY LEWANDOWSKI (TRUMP CAMPAIGN SENIOR ADVISER): You know, Ainsley, as you look at where we are right now in this race, there's a number of states that we believe Donald Trump has already won. You look in Michigan. Donald Trump is up by 200,000 votes. And I heard what your expert just said before this, but the truth is that race should be called. The same is true in Georgia. The same is true in North Carolina. We believe that Donald Trump has already won those races. And so now you look at the battleground state of Pennsylvania. Donald Trump is up almost 700,000 votes in the state of Pennsylvania right now. We believe that state is a win for Donald Trump. You put all those together, Donald Trump is the president of the United States, and he was reelected last night. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Corey, the problem is -- and David, you might want to pick up after this -- there's 1.4 million votes still out there. So if you have 1.4 million, you have a 600,000 lead, even though it would take an inside straight to do it, you should really wait for that, don't you think? 

DAVID BOSSIE (TRUMP CAMPAIGN SENIOR ADVISER): Well, Brian, I think -- everyone wants every legal vote to count. It's to make sure that they're not stuffing the ballot boxes, Brian. This is about the integrity of the election. That on the day after the election, are ballots going to be found and collected and counted? And that's a deep concern by our campaign. I can tell you right now that the lawyers are warming up in the bullpen, and they're going to make sure that it's one vote for one person. And that's what this process has to be, and I think the American people demand it. But to Corey's point is, we are winning this election. And the president is going to get to 270. You know, your so-called expert who was just on just said that no one saw this massive red wave that the president told everybody about for the last several weeks. So, maybe he was the only one who didn't get that. But the point is, we knew that our people, in every piece of data that we collected, and so did everyone else, understand that the Republicans were going to vote on Election Day. And that's what happened here. And that's why you saw these massive swings when the absentee ballots and the early vote were counted early, that same-day voting, yesterday's voting made us win. And win by huge margins, guys, in Florida and Ohio. They were massive margins, much bigger than the 2016 margins that president won by. 

KILMEADE: Texas too.

BOSSIE: And Texas as well.
