As the country waits for the 2020 presidential election results, President Trump appears to be totally against the vote counting process. On November 5, he tweeted “STOP THE COUNT!” While his campaign was filing a lawsuit against Nevada claiming that “illegal votes” are being counted.
The president has also filed lawsuits against Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan – the latter has already stated that his 16 votes will go to Joe Biden.
A former Nevada attorney general Adam Laxalt held an official press conference today to officially reveal the reasons behind the case. Laxalt was joined by Ric Grenell, former director of National Intelligence, Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, and Nevada GOP chairman Michael McDonald.
“We urge the judges to go through any irregularities in order to stop the counting of the controversial ballot,” said Lexalt.
The Daily mail has determined that if the votes were not counted now, Biden would indeed win the election.
In the past few days, President Trump has sparked a tirade against Biden supporters and, in particular, against postal votes. On the morning of November 4th, he tweeted, “You can find Biden votes everywhere – Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.” Then he added, “So bad for our country!”
The Wisconsin Electoral College voted for Biden.
An hour earlier, the President wrote, “How is it that every time they count mail-in ballots, their percentage and destructiveness are so devastating?”
Trump supporters are also calling for the votes not to be counted – they are protesting in both Michigan and Arizona. As mentioned earlier, Michigan’s votes have already been counted in full and the state electoral college votes went to Biden.
