President Donald Trump is expected to travel to Pennsylvania on Wednesday to report on an event organized by Republicans that will feature the state, Axios and CNN reported.
A source told Axios that plans may still change, but the visit will only be Trump’s first trip outside of Washington DC after losing the month’s election against Joe Biden.
Sources told Axios and CNN Trump is expected to join his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, at a hotel in Gettysburg to meet with the state Republican-led Senate Majority Political Committee to discuss alleged “election issues and irregularities.”
State Senator Doug Mastriano has asked that the Trump campaign refuse to give up on court challenges against the Pennsylvania election result for the meeting. The battlefield state officially confirmed its results on Tuesday, with Biden defeating Trump by 80,555 votes and gaining 20 voter college votes.
The event is said to be the first of many planned in battlefield states to undermine Biden’s victory in the election, CNN reported.
Jenna Ellis, a lawyer working on the Trump campaign, said the resigning president’s legal team did not “back down” despite state officials certifying Biden’s victory.
“It is in everyone’s interest to fully investigate electoral irregularities and fraud,” Giuliani said in a Bloomberg report.
“The only way to do that is through a public hearing, supplemented by witnesses, videos, pictures and other evidence of illegal events in the November 3 elections.”
Trump and his campaign, without evidence, continue to insist that widespread voter fraud led to his defeat earlier this month and Pennsylvania was at the center of their unfounded claims.
Bob Bauer, Biden’s campaign consultant, after Pennsylvania confirmed his election results, said: “Everyone except Donald Trump, Rudy Giulianiin and Jenna Ellis is clear that this election is over and Joe Biden has won loudly.”
He added: “Trump did everything he could to deprive voters of their rights and prevent the results from being validated in Pennsylvania, including more than 15 unsuccessful lawsuits – most recently one of the most embarrassing courtroom performances of all time, the judge ruled. not substantiated by any evidence ’.
“Trump failed in Pennsylvania, and he won’t go anywhere else.”
