President Donald Trump demanded that election officials stop the ballot-counting process particularly in key battleground states including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted “STOP THE COUNT!” as he sees his lead in Georgia and Pennsylvania are slowly declining in the presidential race against former Vice President Joe Biden.

“ANY VOTE THAT CAME IN AFTER ELECTION DAY WILL NOT BE COUNTED!” Trump later tweeted.

As election officials continue counting mail-in ballots, Trump’s path to re-election is becoming narrower. The media already projected that Biden will win Wisconsin and Michigan. His campaign is filing lawsuits demanding a recount in Wisconsin, to stop the ballot-counting process in Michigan where they claimed that they were not given enough access in numerous locations to observe.

Yesterday, Trump Republican vote challengers reported that they were prohibited from re-entering the TFC Center in Detroit to observe the ballot-counting process. Election officials told them that the area is already crowded. The president’s supporters gathered outside the location, demanded to let them in, and chanted “stop the count.”

The president also reacted to the report in a tweet yesterday. He wrote, “Detroit Absentee Ballot Counting Chaos, Blocked Windows and Observers.”

In Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign is filed lawsuits challenging the eligibility criteria of certain votes cast and “cured.” The president’s legal team is seeking to throw out votes in counties that allowed voters to “cure” or “fix” problems with their absentee ballots.

In Arizona, approximately, 150 Trump supporters, some carrying firearms, surrounded a ballot-counting facility in Phoenix. They showed their support for the president as Biden maintains a lead.
