Trump Continues To Suffer Embarrassing Defeats
November 30, 2020
Over the weekend, Trump continued to suffer embarrassing defeats. The reality is that Trump lost the election and there is still no evidence to support his outlandish claims of voter fraud. Trump suffered two more court defeats in Pennsylvania and the Wisconsin recount his campaign paid $3 million for only further solidified President-elect Biden’s victory.
Trump’s baseless election claims have been rejected over and over again because the facts are indisputable: he lost and there was no widespread voter fraud.
ABC News: “Lawmakers and judges from both political parties have rejected the president’s increasingly outlandish claims that he should be awarded a second term. Those claims have expanded even as Trump’s losses pile up in courthouses and state houses. It has not been pretty, but the system continues to hold.”
Washington Post: “The facts were indisputable: President Trump had lost.”
The Wisconsin recount the Trump campaign paid $3 million for confirmed Biden’s win and actually widened his margin of victory.
Washington Post: “The recount of presidential ballots in Wisconsin’s two largest counties reconfirmed Sunday that President-elect Joe Biden beat President Trump in the key swing state by more than 20,000 votes, the latest example of the president’s flailing efforts to undo the election results.”
Washington Post: “In the end, Biden’s lead over Trump in the state grew by 87 votes. Under Wisconsin law, Trump was required to foot the bill — meaning his campaign paid $3 million, only to see Biden widen his margin.”
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court gave Trump another defeat after it dismissed a lawsuit from his allies, saying there was no evidence of fraud.
Washington Post: “Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismisses lawsuit against mail ballots with prejudice in another defeat for Trump”
Washington Post: “Concurring, Justice David N. Wecht noted that the GOP petitioners ‘failed to allege that even a single mail-in ballot was fraudulently cast or counted.’”
The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals delivered a blow to Trump, rejecting his case because it had “no merit” and no proof to support his claims.
Washington Post: “In a separate blow to Trump, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit on Friday rejected his request for an emergency injunction to overturn the certification of Pennsylvania’s election results.”
Washington Post: “The 3rd Circuit said the case had ‘no merit’ in a scathing opinion written by Judge Stephanos Bibas, who was appointed to the court by Trump.”
Washington Post: “‘Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy,’ Bibas wrote. ‘Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.’”
