Trump “Claims” Battleground States as Campaign Sues to Stop Vote Counting

HeadlineNov 05, 2020

President Trump made multiple false claims on Wednesday suggesting Democrats were stealing the election. At one point, Trump wrote on Twitter that he was claiming, for electoral vote purposes, the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan, even as votes are still being counted. The Trump campaign also filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan and has requested a recount in Wisconsin. On Wednesday, Wisconsin’s chief elections official, Meagan Wolfe, said Trump’s claims of electoral fraud were an insult to election workers.

Meagan Wolfe: “Anybody is welcome to watch that process. Some of the places even live-streamed their tally last night. And so, I think that it’s insulting to our local election officials to say that any — yesterday’s election was anything but an incredible success.”
