“The recount in Georgia is a joke and is being conducted under protest. Although thousands of fraudulent votes have been found, the real number is in matched signatures. The governor must open the unconstitutional approval decree and call the legislature!” Mr Trump Books.
Georgia found more than 2,800 uncounted ballot papers, but election officials said that the counting of those ballots did not upset the state’s results for Trump.
One of the ballots found – a memory card stored while reviewing the voting machines – contained 2,755 votes. The card contained 1,577 votes for Trump and 1,128 for Joe Biden. Although the discovery gained Trump an additional 449 votes, it was not sufficient to cover Biden’s lead by nearly 14,000 votes.
The complaint was part of a series of tweets Trump wrote Wednesday morning, many of which contained misinformation or outright lies.
It’s unclear if Mr. Trump is referring to Georgia or Pennsylvania in a tweet, but either way, his claim is a lie. Both Republicans and Democrats are allowed to have an equal number of observers watching the recount.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled 5-2 against Mr Trump’s lawsuit filed due to the entry of the pollster on Tuesday.
“Crucially, we found that board regulations as applied here were reasonable in that they allowed representatives of candidates to monitor the board as it conducts its activities as stipulated in the election law,” the state supreme court wrote in its conclusion.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the state’s election law does not specify a minimum distance for observers.
Mr. Trump responded to this ruling, describing it as “a terrible affront to our constitution.”
In another tweet, Trump said, “This was a rigged election” and claimed that the voting machine malfunctions were evidence of fraud. He also claimed that voters cast their ballots after the elections.
The president may be referring to an debunked conspiracy theory floated by Republican National Committee Chair Rona McDaniel and Republican officials in Michigan that claimed that a flaw in voting programs caused Trump to be allocated votes for Biden.
The Michigan State Department of State issued a statement claiming that while there was a glitch in one county, it was the result of human error, and no votes were incorrectly allocated as a result of that error.
Michigan has been a thorn in Mr.Trump’s side for the past 24 hours. On Tuesday evening, Trump wrote on Twitter of his support for a Republican couple from Wayne County who refused to endorse Trump’s county election results. By the time Trump posted his tweet, the Wayne County team members had reversed their course after facing a backlash from the public and endorsing the election.
Wayne County is the most populous county in the state and is the home of Detroit. Had it not been for the heavily Democratic voters of Wayne County, Mr. Trump would have won in Michigan.
After the pollsters agreed to certify the election, Mr Trump was predictably furious.
Trump’s claim that “the number of votes was much greater than the number of people” is rooted in a bogus piece of disinformation on Facebook. It’s a lie.
His allegations of harassment of Republican team members are overblown. When the surveyors refused to endorse results along clearly party lines, voters who were at risk of having their ballot papers disqualified simply for staying in Wayne County were upset and lined up to let them know what they thought.
Another Wayne County boat, Ned Staibler, went viral after his fellow Republicans stormed a Zoom session and told them history would remember them as racists.
Detroit’s population is 80 percent black. On Tuesday night, Trump tweeted, “It’s no surprise that Detroit has huge problems” before demanding the return of Michigan in favor of the Republicans.
In tweets in which Trump was not irresponsibly referring to the promotion of exposed conspiracy theories, he was making impotent claims about his election victory.
“The great state of Michigan, with votes far greater than the number of people who voted, could not endorse the election. The Democrats fooled a great time, got caught. Republican win!” He wrote.
Michigan has ratified the election.
