On Wednesday, the Trump campaign announced that they have filed for a partial recount in the state of Wisconsin. Recounts will take place in two specific counties in the state.
Several new media outlets called the race in Wisconsin – and for the whole country- for Joe Biden. Currently, Biden is ahead of Trump by 20,000 votes in the state. Despite requests – and even demands – that Trump concede the election, he has not and promised that he won’t until the handling of this election has been thoroughly investigated and verified.
The Trump campaign has pending litigation, lawsuits, and election verification in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, and now Wisconsin. After the media declared Biden the winner preemptively and he quickly started acting like the president-elect, the Trump campaign released this statement,
“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”
