The recount that the Donald Trump campaign called for in Milwaukee County, the most populous in the state of Wisconsin, ended up resulting in the attribution of even more votes to his opponent and election winner, Democrat Joe Biden.
The recount carried out in that county ended up dictating that, among the almost 460 thousand votes that were registered, Joe Biden won with 317,527 votes and Donald Trump was in second place with 134,482. Although the order of the results is not particularly surprising (Milwaukee County includes the city of the same name, which is a Democratic bastion in the state of Wisconsin), it is possible that the Donald Trump campaign did not expect that after the recount the advantage of Joe Biden increased by 132.
In all, the Donald Trump campaign spent $ 3 million ($ 2.51 million, at the current exchange rate) to be able to carry out the recount of ballot papers in Milwaukee County and also in Dane County, also in Wisconsin, the results of which are due to be released this weekend.
With 98% of the results counted at this point, Joe Biden is considered the winner of the state of Wisconsin, having an advantage of just over 20,000 votes over Donald Trump.
Given this news, Donald Trump reacted on Twitter. “The Wisconsin recount is not about finding errors in the count, it is about finding people who voted illegally, and that will be evoked after the recount is finished, on Monday or Tuesday,” he wrote in that social network. “We found a lot of illegal votes. Stay tuned!”
In 2016, Wisconsin was a key player in Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, after beating the Democratic candidate by 22,748 votes. The result was unexpected, with most polls predicting a victory for Hillary Clinton in that state that, since 1988, has always voted overwhelmingly for the Democratic candidate in the presidential election.
In Pennsylvania, the President had another piece of bad news: the request made by his team in that equally decisive state was rejected by a panel of relationship judges who said in their decision that there was no evidence for the fraud allegations made by the Republican campaign.
“Free and fair elections are the essence of our democrat. Accusations of injustice are serious. But calling for unjust elections is not enough to make them that ”, wrote Judge Stephanos Bibas, who prepared the final text of the decision of the panel of three judges. “The charges require specific allegations to be presented and then evidence. We have none of that in this case, ”said the judge in question, who was appointed in November 2017 by Donald Trump.
On Saturday, Donald Trump also reacted to the position of Pennsylvania judges. “Specific claims have been made and we have a lot of evidence in Pennsylvania. Some people just don’t want to see them, ”he wrote. “They don’t want to have anything to do with saving this country. Sadness!”
Another reaction to that decision was Jenna Ellis, legal advisor to the Donald Trump campaign team, wrote on Twitter that “the Pennsylvania activist judicial machine continues to cover up allegations of massive fraud” and ended her post with the expression: “For SCOTUS ”. SCOTUS is the English acronym for the US Supreme Court.
This Monday, Donald Trump agreed to start the transition process for Joe Biden, declared winner of the presidential elections by media – in the USA, as the counting process takes time, since the 19th century the media have declared the winner of the elections when their defeat is mathematically impossible. But Donald Trump has yet to acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory, despite saying on Thursday that if his opponent’s victory is officially declared, he will leave the White House.
