"[Trump] really did deserve, in my opinion, to be reelected. And he may yet be reelected when we count every vote," Moore said.

Biden was projected to win the 2020 election earlier this month after the former vice president clinched the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania. 

However, Trump has since refused to concede, and his campaign has mounted several legal challenges in states to stop vote counts and certifications. The president and his allies have alleged that the election results are invalid due to widespread voter fraud, with some such as White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany stating that the president "expects to attend his own inauguration" in January 2021. 

Moore went on to predict that the Senate will maintain its GOP majority, which will act as a check on a Biden administration. 

“You’ve got a goalie to protect the net and make sure those pucks don’t fly and we don’t get a major tax increase,” he said.

As it stands, the Democrats have 48 seats in the upper chamber, while Republicans have 50.
