Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani seemed surprised to learn during a press conference in Philadelphia that television stations had scheduled the presidential election for Joe Biden on Saturday morning.
In response to a question from a reporter, the former New York mayor looked confused about the call before asking, Who was he calling from?
When he heard that "all the networks" had cast the 20 votes of the Biden Pennsylvania electoral college, he quickly recovered, took on a sarcastic tone, and looked around his team and said, "Oh my goodness!"
He reiterated that the Trump campaign would continue to fight the outcome when he said, "Networks cannot rule on elections, courts do."

“All networks, we have to forget the law, judges don't count. All networks. All networks, ”he mocked, looking up at the sky and raising his arms.
& # 39; All the networks thought Biden would win ten percent. What happened? & # 39;
He was then asked whether the team could change the result in its current form in court.
& # 39; Of course! & # 39; he claimed. “Courts overturn elections when they are illegal.
“In this particular case, I don't know if there is enough evidence to lift the entire election – certainly not across the country – perhaps in Pennsylvania.
"However, there is certainly enough evidence to disqualify a certain number of ballots," he claimed.
“Those ballots that have not been properly checked should be thrown away and the number of ballots removed from the count. That could influence the choice. & # 39;
Giuliani and the rest of Trump's legal team held the press conference on Saturday when they announced that they intend to continue Trump's election campaign without paying any attention to Pennsylvania and the presidency, which had already been called to Biden.
"He will not admit if at least 600,000 ballots are eligible," said Giuliani.
Rudy Giuliani slammed the call and stated that "networks cannot make decisions about elections".

The Trump campaign filed several complaints about the number of votes in the state with Giuliani on Saturday, alleging that election workers "were consistently deprived of their right to see part of postal ballot papers."
He was joined by former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi and Trump campaign advisor Corey Lewandowski when they claimed Philadelphia had a "sad history of electoral fraud" and that several ballot papers had been cast with the names of deceased people.
"Will Smith's dad voted here twice since he died," said Giuliani. “I don't know who he voted because the vote is secret. In Philadelphia they keep the voices of the dead secret. & # 39;
"The same thing was done in Georgia, the same thing was done in Michigan, the same thing was done in North Carolina," continued the former mayor.
"It seems to me that someone from the DNC has sent a message telling Republicans not to view this post on ballot papers, at least not in the big Democratic hacking towns we control."
He yelled as he also talked about North Carolina and how insurmountable Trump's leadership there was.
"And they don't name it! Tell me they're not corrupt," he said.
Giuliani initially seemed at a loss when he found out about the call during a press conference

"That is not anecdotal," added Lewandowski. "This is hard evidence and as you do your media job you will find additional examples."
They did not provide evidence of the allegations but said the campaign would initiate a lawsuit on Monday.
The state appeared to have won the presidency for Biden on Saturday when it took a nearly 0.5 percent lead, equivalent to 28,800 votes out of more than 6.5 million votes cast.
Giuliani's claims on Saturday followed his insistence the night before that "this election was won by Donald Trump".
In a video posted on YouTube Friday night about "Rudy Giuliani's Common Sense", the lawyer raged: "It's absolutely impossible!" that Biden had successfully overtaken Trump in Pennsylvania by postal voting.
& # 39; Illogical! Irrational! The same thing would happen in all five or six places that were closely coordinated, ”he said.
He spoke directly to the camera with ink-stained hands as he criticized Fox News, generally calling an ally of Trump's Arizona and Virginia too early, and saying the president cheated on them without calling Pennsylvania and Georgia when Trump was ahead .
"Pennsylvania belongs to Trump," said Giuliani. "If for any reason the total number of votes changes, it must be a scam."

Trump spent Saturday morning tweeting and on the golf course losing Pennsylvania, the state he desperately needed to secure a second term.
At a hearing that Biden had been called out, the president raged again with fraud.
In his statement on Saturday, he argued: “In Pennsylvania, for example, our law enforcement officers were not given meaningful access to track the counting process. Statutory votes decide who is president, not the news media. & # 39;
On Saturday evening, he tweeted again that no observers had entered the room, claiming he had actually won 71,000, "the most votes ever given to a seated president."
“Bad things have happened that our observers were not allowed to see. It has never happened before, ”he said.
But Trump's campaign attorney admitted Thursday to a Philadelphia judge that the president's team had election observers in the room to see how postal ballots were counted in Pennsylvania.
"I'm sorry, what is your problem then?" said US District Judge Paul Diamond, a judge appointed by President George W. Bush.
The Trump campaign sought a restraining order to stop the vote count in Philadelphia, a heavily democratic area that was expected to add to Biden's vote count.
They argued that their observers were wrongly excluded from parts of the city's electoral area at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
However, when questioned, Trump attorney Jerome Marcus admitted, "There are non-zero numbers in the room."
Diamond called on the Trump campaign and the Philadelphia electoral board to find a solution. The two parties eventually agreed that a fixed number of observers – up to sixty – could be admitted from each campaign, according to the NPR.
Trump's campaign suit was then dismissed as contentious.
