The Trump-funded recount will result in more votes before Biden before the Wisconsin certification


The results of a paid campaign by the two county presidents, Donald Trump, were added together, giving President-elect Joe Biden a slightly greater lead over the president in the 2020 election.

The Trump campaign spent $ 3 million on a partial recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties, Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the Milwaukee County recount found 257 additional votes for Biden and 125 for Trump, giving Biden a slightly larger 132-year lead in that county. The final recount cast 317,527 votes for Biden and 134,482 for Trump.

Dane County is expected to complete the recount by Sunday. As of Saturday, Danish county official Scott McDonell said officials had completed the recount at about 83 per cent.

The deadline for the recount is Tuesday, so state election commissions can justify the election.

“Election workers examined each ballot, the meticulous narrative of each properly cast vote, a transparent process that allowed the public to observe, a fair process that allowed the aggrieved candidate seeking recounting the opportunity to observe. Protests against the ballot papers. , which they say don’t count, ”said Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson Journal Sentinel.

Trump has repeatedly argued that voter fraud has lost elections in many states. Many of his claims have been refuted and rejected.

Rick Baas, a Republican member of the Canvassers County Council, cited human error as the cause of the error. “I am confident that the Trump campaign is looking forward to his day in court. A number of things have had to be corrected, and these are often portrayed only as human error, and they are usually,” he said.

“It’s important for people to understand how their government works. Recounting is just that: recalculation. There’s evidence that will be raised to another level and will be examined there, but because this body has behaved in a way that’s exemplary,” he continued.

The Trump campaign has launched several lawsuits to prove that voter fraud entered elections in several swing states, such as Pennsylvania. Most lawsuits were dismissed.

On Twitter, people ridiculed Trump for the results of the Wisconsin recount, people pointed to the irony. Katie Couric tweeted, “Be careful what you crave.”

According to the Associated Press, Biden won Wisconsin by a very small margin of nearly 21,000 votes. Biden received 49.6 percent of the vote and Trump 48.9 percent.

On Saturday afternoon, Trump tweeted that the recount was more about “finding people who voted illegally” rather than “finding errors in the count.” He claimed the campaign had found illegal votes and would be held on Monday or Tuesday after the recount was completed.

The president ended his tweet by saying to his followers, “Stay with us!”

The Trump campaign did not respond Newsweek’s their comments were sent by e-mail at the time of publication.

Election officials will wait for procedural issues to be debated during the countdown of ballots from the November 3 election at the Wisconsin Center on November 20, 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
