A setback for Donald Trump as Georgia recount confirms Joe Biden’s victory

On Friday, the state of Georgia completed the audit and recount of votes with results confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. With this recount affirming Biden’s win, he will be getting Georgia’s 16-electoral college votes.

Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Trump supporter, has said that he was disappointed that US President Donald Trump did not win the State of Georgia. Raffensperger has said that the numbers presented in the audit and recount are correct and the numbers aren’t lying. According to final results of the audit, Biden beat Trump by 12,284 votes, which is a slight dip in votes for Biden compared to the results that were declared before the state of Georgia went forward with audit and recount of votes.

Officials in Georgia have said that the audit has confirmed there no irregularities or voter fraud took place during the election. For quite some time now, Trump has been falsely claiming that there has been widespread voter fraud in the 2020 US election. So far, no proof has been found of such a fraud taking place.

Meanwhile, the President, who is still refusing to concede the elections, has been raking a tweet storm. Trump tweeted that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Raffensperger refused to let the Republicans look at the signature which would expose hundreds of thousands of illegal ballots and give the Republican Party and Trump a big victory. The tweet was immediately flagged by Twitter with claims about the election fraud is disputed. Trump continues to claim that the election is rigged.

When Bloomberg reported that the Trump campaign is seeking to withdraw its Michigan election lawsuit stating that the litigation its goal of derailing the certification of election results in Detroit and surrounding Wayne Counties, Trump tweeted that they withdrew because they won.
