WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign on Wednesday said it would forge ahead with legal efforts to ensure legally cast -- and not illegally cast - votes were counted, and said it expected to win even as ballots in key states continued to be tallied.

“If we count all legal ballots, we win, the president wins,” Bill Stepien told reporters on a conference call.
