Trump options narrow as MI backs Biden win

Trump options narrow as MI backs Biden win”

Shut off from government funds, Biden's team on Friday ramped up their fundraising for the transition.

What is the president's next move?

The certification happened following the conclusion on Thursday of the hand-count of the five million votes requested by the Trump campaign, resulting in a 12,670 vote lead for Mr. Biden.

Mr Trump has also expressed interest in inviting legislators from Pennsylvania, another battleground won by Mr Biden, to the White House for a meeting, a senior campaign official confirmed to the BBC's United States partner, CBS News.

Biden, a Democrat, is preparing to take office on January 20, but Trump, a Republican, has refused to concede and is seeking to invalidate or overturn the results through lawsuits and recounts in a number of states, claiming - without proof - widespread voter fraud.

It is seen as highly unlikely that the president's team would be able to flip MI and Pennsylvania.

The meeting was highly criticized as a last desperate bid to reverse Michigan's election results that have Joe Biden beating President Trump by more than 150,000 votes.

Trump also called two Republican canvass board members from Wayne County to offer his support, the person said Thursday, after they went back and forth on voting to certify the election results from the state's largest county, which includes Detroit.

'We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election, ' Shirkey and Chatfield said in the statement. The two Congressmen admit they "have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election". They claim to have gone to the White House primarily to discuss federal coronavirus aid for MI. "We saw this from the Democrats in 2018 and we see this from Republicans today", Mr. Raffensperger said.

"While in 2016 President Trump became the duly elected president, many sought to undermine him, discredit him, delegitimise him and deny his victory". "As we did for the presidential transition in 2017, this process is being done in close consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration". Ms McEnany also said that media outlets had accused Mr Trump of having colluded with Russian Federation, an allegation that a major justice department inquiry found no evidence to support.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a self-proclaimed Trump supporter, said: "Like other Republicans". I'm disappointed, our candidate didn't win Georgia's electoral votes.

Certification is usually a formality, but Trump is trying to block or delay the process in key states as part of a long-shot effort to overturn his election defeat through the Electoral College.

Trump's bid to cling to power appeared ever more tenuous on Friday after Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced a manual recount and audit of all ballots cast in the southern state had confirmed Biden as the victor there.
