U.S. election 2020: Biden says Trump denial 'sending terrible message'

U.S. election 2020: Biden says Trump denial 'sending terrible message'”

His campaign has filed lawsuits in closely contested states such as Pennsylvania where he is trying to stop officials from certifying the vote. Those electors then meet on December 14 to formally cast their votes in the Electoral College.

Senator Lamar Alexander became the latest Republican to nudge Trump, saying Biden "has a very good chance" of becoming the next president and should be provided "all transition materials, resources and meetings necessary to ensure a smooth transition".

A legion of conservative media outlets, activists and lawmakers have also spread claims from the president and his aides.

He has maintained his busy tweeting scheduled however.

United States President-elect Joe Biden has assailed the Trump administration's lack of cooperation on the presidential transition, which he says hinders his team's ability to get up-to-date information on the coronavirus pandemic.

"Their duties are to receive the canvas and certify the canvas, that's it", said John Pirich, a former assistant attorney general who now teaches at Michigan State University Law School.

Their Senate races are key to the federal government's balance of power, as losses by both would put Democrats in control of the chamber and able to push Biden's legislative agenda through Congress.

In Michigan, Republican Senate Majority leader Mike Shirkey left on Friday morning to meet with Trump at the White House.

Giuliani said accounts of suspicious activity would ultimately overturn the election, which Biden won nationwide by 5.9 million votes.

Trump's play for MI was among a series of last-ditch tactics his team was using to challenge his defeat.

"It is hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president", he wrote.

"They're in lockstep agreement that there needs to be emergency assistance and aid during the lame-duck session to help families, to help small businesses", Psaki said. In a freaky 100-minute "press conference" on Thursday broadcast only on conspiracy-filled right wing media, Trump's lawyers Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani claimed that Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez (who died in 2013) was part of a group of communists tied to China to help rig the election in Joe Biden's favor.

In 2000, the election all hung on a few hundred votes in Florida, which led to recounts and ultimately the infamous Supreme Court case. While late night humorists feasted on the comical sight of hair dye dripping down the cheeks of a profusely sweating Giuliani at the wild conspiracy conference, many commentators are alarmed over the denigration of the USA electoral process and political system, and are warning about American credibility diminishing across the world.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) warned that the "wild press conferences erode public trust", adding that "we are a nation of laws, not tweets".

The Democrat said he was not concerned that people may question the legitimacy of his administration.

On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Trump and his team had given up hope of overturning the election result with their lawsuits, and have settled on a new plan to stall the final vote announcement long enough to throw Biden's victory into doubt. His team also has suggested in a legal challenge that Pennsylvania set aside the popular vote there and pressured county officials in Arizona to delay certifying vote tallies.

The recount is unlikely to affect the result.

In remarks on Thursday after a call with 10 state governors, Biden called Trump's attempt to reverse the results "totally irresponsible".
