According to a report on the 11th, since the mainstream media announced that Biden is expected to win the 2020 election, current U.S. President Trump has firmly refused to admit defeat and launched a legal challenge to the election results, while claiming that widespread “election fraud” led to his failure to re-election.
His ideas are supported by some Republican lawmakers in the United States. In response, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday that no Republican congressman who accepted Trump’s allegations of “election fraud” had no reasonable evidence.
Hillary expressed her own disgust with Republican politicians on social media Twitter, noting that “the election is not close. There is no evidence of fraud. Hillary wrote: “The results have been certified by various states in the United States.
However, Trump continues to try to overthrow the election results in a way that undermines American democracy. The emperor was naked. There is no backbone for Republican officials who continue to cater to him.”
Although Trump had previously approved the U.S. General Services Administration to begin the process of opening the transition of power to the Biden administration, he insisted that his second presidency had been robbed because of “fraud” in the election.
The Trump campaign has filed multiple lawsuits, most of which have been rejected by the court for lack of evidence or legal basis. Nevertheless, there is still a strong force within the Republican Party in the United States to support Trump’s baseless claims, and Ken Paxton, the U.S. Attorney General of Texas, recently filed a lawsuit demanding that the U.S. Supreme Court invalidate the election results of four states.
In addition, at least one Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives recently vowed to challenge the Electoral College vote (held December 14).
Rep. Mo Brooks, a Republican, said he would question the Electoral College vote “because, in my opinion, it is the worst election theft in American history”.
But so far, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Attorney General Barr have announced that there is no evidence of large-scale fraud that may change the election results.
A recent survey by The Washington Post showed that 220 Republican members from both houses of the United States were unwilling to say who won the U.S. presidential election. Two other Republicans said that Trump actually won, although no vote count gave such an estimate.
