Guiliani: Trump will not concede with ‘at least 600,000 ballots in question’

Despite the fact that several states have yet to officially declare a winner of the 2020 presidential election, Democrat nominee Joe Biden was coronated as the 46th president of the United States by the mainstream media on Saturday, and much of the nation fell in line.

However, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani revealed that Trump is not planning to concede “when at least 600,000 ballots are in question.”

Legal challenges

Guiliani said in a news conference on Saturday that the race is “far from over,” and that Trump’s legal team has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Arizona alleging voter fraud and election interference.

The Washington Examiner reported on Saturday that Trump will attempt to force a recount of the vote in Wisconsin, another hotly-contested state that has been called for Biden.

The Examiner wrote:

Joe Biden, the presumptive winner of the 2020 presidential election, leads Trump in the Badger State 49.6% to 48.9% 49.6% to 48.9% — or by just about 20,500 votes. In a call with supporters on Saturday, Trump deputy campaign manager Justin Clark vowed that the campaign would forge ahead with a recount and raised allegations of “irregularities” during the election, although he did not provide details about those claims.

Clark explained that “There were some serious irregularities on election day that we are looking into. We’ve already announced that we’re going to seek a statewide recount in Wisconsin, and we plan to do so.”

“We expect that the canvass, the initial canvass will be done Monday or Tuesday. And then that process will begin,” Clark concluded. Canvassing is the process by which the state certifies the election unofficial election results and declares a winner.

In Arizona, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit claiming that ballots may have been improperly handled by poll workers in Maricopa County.

“When a machine detects an over-vote on a ballot, poll workers should inform in-person voters of the error and give them an opportunity to correct the issue,” the Trump legal team explained. “Instead, poll workers in Maricopa County pressed, and told voters to press, a green button to override the error,” the campaign said. “As a result, the machines disregarded the voter’s choices in the over-voted races.”

In Pennsylvania, Donald Trump alleged that Democrats attempted to “steal” the election by blocking poll watchers from actually viewing the counting process. A legal challenge is already underway in the Keystone state.

Looking ahead

Currently, optimism that Donald Trump would come out on top of the election is low — even if he wins these legal challenges — but as Guiliani pointed out, it’s unheard-of for a candidate to be ahead by hundreds of thousands of votes only to watch their lead slip away overnight.

Guiliani said that the Trump campaign will likely bring another lawsuit against Pennsylvania, and follow it by bringing “a federal lawsuit and we’re going to take a very good look at whether we bring this nationally. … Quite possibly, we’ll do a national lawsuit and really expose the corruption of the Democrat Party.”
