WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump, battered by back-to-back setbacks in his desperate bid to overturn the U.S. presidential election, persisted with claims of massive voter fraud on Saturday, two weeks after Democrat Joe Biden was declared president-elect. His campaign has not been able to provide any evidence for its claims of widespread and coordinated electoral fraud, however. “To effectuate this strategy, Defendants are openly seeking to disenfranchise Black voters, including voters in Detroit, Michigan,” said the lawsuit. PRESSURE TO START FORMAL TRANSITIONBiden, who has denounced Trump’s attempt to reverse the election results as “totally irresponsible”, was due to spend Saturday meeting with transition advisers. Senior Republicans have remained largely silent about Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of election fraud or have defended his right to seek redress, but pressure was building after several voiced doubts on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Michigan’s Republican state legislative leaders said after meeting with President Donald Trump on Friday that they had no information that would change the outcome of the presidential election in the state, which was won by Democrat Joe Biden. Michigan is one of several states where the campaign of the Republican Trump is seeking to challenge Biden’s victory in the Nov. 3 election based on unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. Before Friday’s meeting, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said: “This is not an advocacy meeting. He routinely meets with lawmakers from all across the country.”Shirkey and Chatfield said any allegation of election fraud should be thoroughly investigated. “Michigan’s certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation,” they said.

(Reuters) - President Donald Trump will meet with Republican leaders from Michigan at the White House on Friday as his campaign pursues an increasingly desperate bid to overturn the Nov. 3 election result following a series of courtroom defeats. The Trump team is focusing on Michigan and Pennsylvania for now, but even if both those states flipped to the president he would need another state to overturn its vote to surpass Biden in the Electoral College. Shirkey told a Michigan news outlet earlier this week that the legislature would not appoint a second slate of electors. “It’s incredibly dangerous that they are even entertaining the conversation,” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, told MSNBC. Nationally, Biden won nearly 6 million more votes than Trump, a difference of 3.8 percentage points.

(Reuters) - President Donald Trump will meet with Republican leaders from Michigan at the White House on Friday as his campaign pursues an increasingly desperate bid to overturn the Nov. 3 election result following a series of courtroom defeats.

Nationally, Biden won nearly 6 million more votes than Trump, a difference of 3.8 percentage points. But the outcome of the election is determined in the Electoral College, where each state’s electoral votes, based largely on population, are typically awarded to the winner of a state’s popular vote. Biden leads by 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232 as states work to certify their results at least six days before the Electoral College convenes on Dec. 14.
