US NEWS: Two weeks after Biden was elected President-elect, Trump faces serious challenges

WASHINGTON – Joe Biden on Saturday reached a two-week mark since being elected President, and President Donald Trump has been overwhelmed by setbacks in his efforts to end his election defeat.

Biden, a Democrat, is preparing to run for office on January 20, but Trump, a Republican, has refused to accept and wants to make or break the results by filing lawsuits and counting in many states, saying – without evidence – widespread voter fraud.

That attempt, which critics say is an unprecedented improvement made by the planned president to change the will of the electorate, has failed miserably. Trump’s campaign has faced several legal defeats and it seems he has failed to convince his fellow Republicans in countries that claim defeat, such as Michigan, to buy into his baseless conspiracy theories.

Trump’s desire to hold on to power came to a screeching halt on Friday after Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced a handwritten counting of ballot papers in the southern state that had convinced Biden to win.

Two of Richard Republican’s leaders attacked again when they announced Friday night after a meeting at White House with Trump: “We have not been informed of any information that could change the election results in Michigan.”

Trump, in his first public comment on days about the election result, reiterated that he had “won” during a White House event on lowering drug prices earlier Friday.

Following a series of court victories, the Trump administration is placing its hopes of finding Republican-controlled legislatures in the Biden-defeated territories to set aside the results and declare Trump the winner, according to three people familiar with the plan.

It is a long-term effort to focus on Michigan and Pennsylvania at the moment, but even if both states have gone to the presidency they will have to change votes in another state to advance Biden at Electoral College.

Such an event was unprecedented in modern U.S. history.

Biden, who became president-elect on November 7 after his success in Pennsylvania made major television networks call for elections, was due to annul Saturday’s meeting with Deputy President-Kamala Harris and reform advisers.

Trump will take part this weekend in the last 20 major global economic summit (G20) of his time.

Trump’s approach to nationalism “America First” often creates waves at international conferences such as the G20, and many American allies have quietly welcomed the upcoming change of leadership in Washington.

Pressure for Trump to launch a formal reform process has risen, with several other Republicans voicing doubts about his unsubstantiated allegations of fraudulent voting.

There is a “right and wrong” way for Trump to intervene in what he sees as a flawed election, Susan Collins, a Maine Senator, said in a statement. “The best way is to gather evidence and put legal challenges in our courts. The wrong way to try to oppress government election officials. ”

The General Services Administration, headed by Trump’s nominee, has yet to see Biden’s victory, barring his team from gaining access to government office space and the usual money given to incoming managers.

Critics say Trump’s refusal to acknowledge has serious implications for national security and the fight against coronavirus, which has killed more than 250,000 Americans.

Closed on government finances, the Biden team on Friday tightened up fundraising for the change. Having taken more than $ 7 million in targets first, especially from wealthy donors, they turned to their huge list of small donors, asking – in terms of fundraising notes – for donations as low as $ 25.

Although Biden’s team remains unable to access resources and government experts to help manage the US $ 4 trillion government administration on Open Day, Trump officials have been making unexpected changes to plans, policies and agencies that could affect incoming managers.

The Treasury Reserve’s claim that the Federal Reserve has reimbursed hundreds of billions of dollars in business-backed debt drew a sharp response from Biden’s party on Friday, calling it “extremely careless,” given urgent COVID charges against the new country.
