Trump supporters in Arizona chant ‘stop the steal’, ‘count the votes’

rump supporters protest count the votes

President Donald Trump’s supporters assembled outside the ballot counting center in Maricopa County, Arizona after Fox News called that former Vice President Joe Biden wins the state’s 20 Electoral College votes

Arizona is a critical battleground state for either Trump or Biden to clinch the presidency. The former vice president holds a slim lead in the state. Therefore, the president and his supporters believe the state is still in play.

It is interesting to note that Trump supporters are demanding that election officials must count every ballot, which is in contrast with the president’s legal actions in other battleground states including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Nevada where he demanded: “stop the count.”

Trump supporters started their protest at the ballot counting center in Phoenix late Wednesday night in response to Fox News’ projection in favor of Biden while other TV networks are saying that the presidential race in the state is too close to call, thus it is necessary to wait for election officials to finish counting all the ballots.uring the protest,
