More 132 votes than previously thought were added to Joe Biden has Donald Trump paid for a recount of all the votes in the US state of Wisconsin.
For recounting Trump actually paid $3 million or £2.25 million and which doesn’t provide him anything in return. Also, in the wake of his election defeat, he yet receives another disappointing blow and this surely not felt well by the outgoing 45th President of the United States.
The Wisconsin Electoral Commission first confirmed on 18th November about the money paid by Trump. They tweeted on 18th November, “The Wisconsin Elections Commission has received a wire transfer from the Trump campaign for $3 million.” They also added “No petition has been received yet, but the Trump campaign has told WEC staff one will be filed today. We have no further information at this time.”
Biden’s margin of victory in the mid-Western state should have been ever so slightly bigger and the Trump campaign had aimed to overturn Biden’s slim 22,500 lead. Though despite the success they found yet bigger loss.
Trump has been adamantly and falsely claimed the election had been ‘stolen’ and that there was widespread voter fraud since the results started to come in. Any such challenges being rejected by courts so fur and recounts confirm that in fact, Biden had won fair and square.
Therefore on 20th January, Trump will have to vacate the White House under any condition. It’s very clear he won’t like it very much and this expenditure on recounting just added some more impacts to his latest defeat.
The POTUS tweeted, “The 1,126,940 votes were created out of thin air. I won Pennsylvania by a lot, perhaps more than anyone will ever know.”
A three-judge panel dismissed his further appeal against the results in Pennsylvania on Saturday night. Judge Stephanos Bibas one of the three-judge said, “Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy.” He further added, “Charges of unfairness are serious, but calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”
A spokesperson Mike Gwin, from the Biden campaign, said to Forbes, “Once more, Donald Trump’s debunked claims of widespread voter fraud utterly fail to withstand scrutiny – just like they haven’t held up in court in the over 35 cases they’ve lost since Election Day.”
Mr. George Christenson a Milwaukee county clerk said in addition, “The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee county are fair, transparent, accurate and secure.”
