Reuters Reported of Trump’s Intention to Overturn Presidential Election
OREANDA-NEWS. The incumbent US President, Republican Donald Trump wants, with the help of senior members of the Republican Party, to achieve a revision of the votes of electors in his favour in some states. This was reported by Reuters agency, citing three sources familiar with the situation.
The journalists’ interlocutors said that after courts in several American states refused to review the vote results, Trump decided to act through influential Republican lawmakers. It is known that he intends to do so in the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, where, according to the preliminary results of the counting of ballots, Democratic candidate Joe Biden won.
Michigan House of Representatives Speaker, Lee Chatfield, and Michigan Senate majority leader, Michael J. Shirkey, will visit the White House on November 20 at Trump,s invitation.
A source at Trump’s headquarters said that the president’s strategy is to question ballot counting in major cities that traditionally vote for Democrats. After that, state Republican lawmakers will have no choice but to intervene and, possibly, convince the electors to vote for the incumbent head of the United States.
