A day after Pennsylvania confirmed its presidential election results in favor of President-elect Joe Biden, President Trump again on Wednesday claimed to have “won a lot” in the election.
“We won a lot in this election, we got 74 million votes,” Trump said at a meeting of the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee on “election issues and irregularities”.
However, Biden received 80 million votes and 306 voter votes, according to Associated Press forecasts, including 20 voter votes in Pennsylvania.
“These elections were lost, cheated by Democrats,” Trump said through a speakerphone while his lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, attended the hearing in person. – It was a fraudulent election.
However, Trump provided no evidence of fraud or deception.
“We need to reverse the election,” he said. – These elections have been rigged and we cannot allow that to happen. We cannot let this happen to our country. And this choice needs to be reversed because we have won a lot in Pennsylvania and we have won a lot in all these swing states. “
However, Biden won 80,555 votes in the state of Pennsylvania, and election officials say there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud.
Governor Tom Wolf announced Tuesday that Pennsylvania had verified the election results and thanked the election officials “who conducted fair and free elections at an incredibly difficult time in the history of our community and the country”.
“Our election workers were under constant attack and performed wonderfully and with honor,” Wolf added.
Wednesday’s hearing will be held by senators from the Republican state, who claimed the election was plagued by problems such as irregularities in postal voting. Witnesses who have made statements about election fraud in statements will be given the opportunity to speak.
Efforts by the Trump campaign, based on allegations of fraud, to stop validating the Commonwealth’s election results have failed.
“It is in everyone’s interest to fully investigate electoral irregularities and fraud,” Giuliani said in a pre-hearing statement. “And the only way to do that is through a public hearing, supplemented by witnesses, videos, pictures and other evidence of the illegality of the November 3 elections.”
