In the 2020 presidential election, recounts, certifications, and litigation remain ongoing. President Trump’s legal team, along with independent lawyer Sidney Powell, have multiple lawsuits filed across different states.

President Trump himself admitted last week that time is not on the side of his legal representatives. As of this Monday, there are precisely two weeks remaining until the Electoral College is scheduled to vote for an election winner; last week, the president also declared that he will leave the White House, if the Electoral College votes for Biden.

Left and right, states are certifying their election results for Biden. Meanwhile, multiple recounts are ongoing; however, the completion of a Wisconsin recount only resulted in yet another declaration of Biden as the winner, confirms Newsmax.

What to Know About the Wisconsin Recount

Yesterday, the state of Wisconsin finished their recount of votes, following the Trump team’s request for a recount. In Dane County, President Trump gained 45 votes from the recount; however, in the left-wing Milwaukee County, the recount discovered 132 additional votes for the former vice president.

Following the aforementioned recount, representatives from the Trump campaign and Biden campaign each gave statements. Jenna Ellis, a lawyer representing Trump, declared that “serious issues” regarding the legality of certain Wisconsin ballots are a factor; meanwhile, Biden’s camp celebrated the recount’s results, stating that it “reaffirmed” Biden’s victory.


A Statement from President Trump

Prior to the conclusion of the Wisconsin recount, President Trump issued a statement online about his concerns. Per the 45th president, the purpose of the Wisconsin recount centered around rooting out unlawful votes. As such, Trump urged the nation to stay tuned for further developments either today or tomorrow.

Due to the recount’s outcome, it appears very likely that Wisconsin will join the list of states that have certified their results for Biden. Furthermore, Wisconsin’s certification deadline is tomorrow, December 1; if past events indicate future ones to come, the Trump legal team could pursue additional litigation against Wisconsin, following their certification.

A right-wing group known as the Wisconsin Voters Alliance is pushing for the state to hold off on certifying its results. Meanwhile, Tony Evers, the state’s liberal governor, is dismissing these calls, accusing the group of attempting to disenfranchise Wisconsin voters.
