President Donald Trump has expressed optimism in winning the presidential contest, saying "we are on the road to victory and we will make America great and again."

He thanked them for their "tremendous support."
"I appreciate very much. I want to thank the American people for the tremendous support. They tried to disfranchise a group of people but we won't stand down.
"We won states we never expected to win. We Florida, we won Ohai, Texas, Georgia. We also won North Carolina. If you look Arizona also, we also won it. We are winning with a tremendous victory. We are winning Michigan.
"I want to thank all the people who have worked with us. We are on the road to victory and we will make America great and again."
