United States President Donald Trump is still refusing to concede that he lost the 2020 Presidential election and has filed new lawsuits, making claims of voter fraud, despite having no evidence to prove it.

Trump lost the election to President-elect Joe Biden, with every network news outlet calling the election last weekend, but has refused to accept that the Democratic nominee won the election fairly.

Having avoided reporters while laying down a ceremonial wreath at Arlington cemetery in commemoration of the United States’ Veterans Day, the incumbent president took to Twitter, claiming that there has been “a mountain of corruption & dishonesty” in the elections process.

Meanwhile, Biden laid down his own wreath in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, after calling President Trump’s antics “an embarrassment” yesterday. He also held a meeting behind closed doors in Wilmington, Delaware, where his transition team continued work on the future announcement of aides and cabinet officials for his new-look White House that will take over on 20 January at noon.

The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit in a Michigan federal court, claiming that there were irregularities in the Democrat stronghold city of Detroit, asking judges to delay certification of the vote, as reported by Al Jazeera. With Biden winning Michigan by 148,000 votes and collecting its 16 electoral college votes, even losing the state will only take his total electoral votes tally down from 290 to 274, with 270 needed to clinch the election.

A similar lawsuit was filed in Pennsylvania (20 electoral college votes) as well yesterday and the Trump campaign will also be formally requesting a recount in Wisconsin (10 votes).

In Georgia (16 votes), Biden won the state where five million ballots were cast by just 14,000 votes and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced the state will conduct a recount by hand and a random audit of ballots.

“This will help build confidence. It will be an audit, a recount and a re-canvass all at once,” Raffensperger said at a Wednesday news conference.

However, Republican and Democratic election officials from every US state have told The New York Times there is no evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities.
