Trump expected to address the nation tonight, Kellyanne Conway says

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said President Trump will make a statement Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning as the votes of the presidential election are tallied.

“You will hear from the president tonight,” Conway told ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Trump is watching results come in from the White House with about 100 campaign staffers and others, Conway said.

“The president is expected to address the nation later from the east room of the White House,” she told Stephanopoulos.

Conway then recalled how president-elect Trump addressed the nation at about 3 a.m. in 2016 after defeating Hillary Clinton in a stunning upset to win the presidency.

By about 8:15 p.m. both Biden and Trump had notched victories in a number of states, but neither candidate had won coveted victories in places like Pennsylvania or Ohio.

Trump was narrowly leading Biden in Florida, but the final ballots had not been counted in the Sunshine State.
