President Donald Trump’s family and campaign members falsely declared a victory in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, before the state counted all the votes or called the race themselves, and before any major media outlet issued a projection.

According to Tessa Berenson, a White House correspondent for Time, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien declared victory in the state during a call prior to the press conference.
