In a video statement sent from the White House at the G20 conference organized by Saudi Arabia, Trump said, “I pulled the US out of the unjust and biased Paris climate agreement to protect American workers.” It was very harmful for America. Trump made these comments during a discussion between countries with the world’s largest economies on the subject of saving the earth. He said that the purpose of this agreement is not to save the environment but to ruin the American economy. At the same time, Trump’s newly elected President Joe Biden has said that he will rejoin America in this agreement, which he helped to shape five years ago.
Re-count appeals again in Georgia After the defeat in Pennsylvania, Trump’s campaign has now led to a petition for re-counting of votes in Georgia. Considered a Republican stronghold, Georgia’s newly elected US President Joe Biden won by over 12,000 votes. Biden is the first Democrat candidate to win in this important electoral state since 1992. No Democratic candidate has won in Georgia since Bill Clinton in 1992. Once the votes are counted again, the election officials will have to count more than five million votes.
Trial dismissed in Pennsylvania On the other hand, a federal judge in America has dismissed a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania on behalf of the country’s President Donald Trump’s campaign, which sought to declare millions of votes invalid. The judge said that the allegations are based on speculation. Judge Trump of the US Middle District of Pennsylvania rejected Trump’s request for a Trump campaign Saturday, a major setback to President Trump’s efforts to challenge the results of the November 3 election. Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden has been victorious in the presidential election. Judge Bran alleged a few days ago that he was being harassed by phone calls. In his judgment, he said that the Trump campaign had ‘twisted and misconstrued legal arguments’ and did not present evidence to support the allegations based on speculation. The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit earlier this month alleging irregularities in the voting process. Newly-elected President Biden defeated Trump in Pennsylvania by a margin of more than 81,000 votes. There are 20 electoral college votes in this important state. Judge Bran said in his judgment, “This court has not understood any basis under which the plaintiff has demanded such a comprehensive reform in the election”.
Trump observers create ruckus in Wisconsin Election officials in Wisconsin’s largest counties have alleged that US President Donald Trump’s supporters tried to disrupt the re-election of the presidential election, and many times objected to every ballot removed for counting. Trump requested re-counting in Milwaukee and Dane counties. Democratic leader Joe Biden won here by a margin of 20,600 votes. Earlier, any victory with such a big margin has not turned into a defeat after the re-count. In such a situation, many people believe that Trump is conducting the counting of votes again so that he can finally challenge the voting here in court. Trump has challenged the election results in court in several important states.
County Clerk George Christenson said Saturday that the re-count was delayed significantly due to repeated complaints by Republican members in Milwaukee. He said that the observers of the Trump were constantly trying to obstruct the re-counting of votes by repeatedly questioning the voters and making comments. Christenson said, ‘This is unacceptable. It is not clear what they are doing. County Election Commissioner Tim Posnanski said Trump’s supervisor at a re-counting table objected to every ballot that was removed from the bag. Posnanski said that there was “prima facie evidence that the Trump campaign campaign worked badly.” Lawyer Joe Voiland, who spoke to members of the commission on behalf of the Trump campaign campaign, denied that his side acted maliciously.
