President Donald Trump on Saturday slammed President-elect Joe Biden’s move to start selecting members of his Cabinet amid the lawsuits filed by his campaign challenging the election results in key battleground states.
“Why is Joe Biden so quickly forming a Cabinet when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes, enough to ‘flip’ at least four States, which in turn is more than enough to win the Election?” Trump tweeted.
He expressed hope that the “courts and/or legislatures will have the courage to do what has to be done to maintain the integrity of our elections, and the United States of America itself.”
….the COURAGE to do what has to be done to maintain the integrity of our Elections, and the United States of America itself. THE WORLD IS WATCHING!!!

The chief executive’s claims come in the wake of a key battleground state, Wisconsin, continuing its recount. President Trump paid $3 million, as required by state law, for the partial recount that must conclude by December 1.
The Trump campaign has pushed to disqualify ballots where election clerks filled in missing address information on the certification envelope where the ballot is inserted. It also floated allegations that thousands of absentee ballots don’t have proper written paperwork.
In another swing state, Pennsylvania, a federal judge dismissed a Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to delay or prevent the state’s certification of poll results.
President Trump did not take this sitting down. He said his campaign will appeal the decision of U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport to junk the lawsuit.
Pres. Trump, in a tweet, said Brann “would not even allow us to present our case or evidence.”
