Trump is reportedly expected to join Rudy Giuliani at a hotel in Gettysburg on Wednesday for a Republican organised hearing into baseless voter fraud allegations in the state. Pennsylvania officially certified Biden's victory on Tuesday. Donald Trump is reportedly set to travel to Pennsylvania on Wednesday to address a Republican-organized event promoting baseless allegations of voter fraud in the state. "It's in everyone's interest to have a full vetting of election irregularities and fraud," Giuliani said, in a statement reported by Bloomberg. Trump and his campaign continue to insist, without evidence, that widespread voter fraud led to his defeat earlier this month, and has put Pennsylvania at the centre of their baseless claims.

The Trump campaign is asking that appeals court to hear its bid to block the effect of Tuesday's certification of a win for Biden in Pennsylvania. Scaringi's letter explicitly details the strategy that the Trump campaign has hinted around for weeks, ever since Biden was projected as the winner of the national election. As part of that strategy, Trump campaign lawyers have repeatedly made allegations of widespread voting fraud. In their appeal, the Trump campaign did not request that Brann's ruling be reversed. Brann's ruling effectively denied the request to add back in numerous claims that the Trump campaign previously cut from its own lawsuit.

(Reuters) -Pennsylvania officials told a federal appeals court on Tuesday it should reject a bid by U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign to block President-elect Joe Biden from being declared the winner of the battleground state, according to a court filing. REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstLawyers for Trump’s campaign have asked the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals to halt the “effect” of the state’s results. Those defective ballots, the Trump campaign said, should be “deducted from Biden’s votes, which may change the result of the election.”Biden received nearly 81,000 more votes than Trump in the state. Even if Trump was able to overturn the election results in Pennsylvania, he would need to invalidate the results in two other key states to change the outcome of the election. If the campaign loses its appeal, it could ask the U.S. Supreme Court to take up its case.

WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania certified its election results Tuesday for President-elect Joe Biden, solidifying Biden’s victory and dealing yet another blow to President Donald Trump’s efforts to block the results. In total, 3,458,229 votes were certified for Biden and 3,377,674 were certified for Trump. Pennsylvania was expected to certify its election results Monday, but a few counties in the state reported delays. "Trump did everything he could to disenfranchise voters and stop the results from being certified in Pennsylvania," Biden campaign’s legal adviser Bob Bauer said in a statement Tuesday. Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico and the District of Columbia, all states won by Biden, are also expected to certify their results on Tuesday.

Flyers returning to the skies for the upcoming holiday season will be met with an entirely new travel experience. The upcoming holiday travel season will likely see an influx of travelers taking to the skies, many for the first time since the pandemic impacted travel in March. The peak travel season for Thanksgiving and Christmas travel should be no different as historically among the busiest travel times of the year. Air travel rating firm Skytrax has also recently started rating airports based on their COVID-19 preparedness that passengers can use as a resource. But not all airlines are being as generous and ultra-low-cost carriers Sun Country Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines, and Allegiant Air are each taking a different approach.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has promised to rejoin the Iran nuclear agreement if Iran abides by the deal, but both sides will have to race against the clock and navigate a political minefield to reach that goal. Iran and the bombThe 2015 agreement between Iran and world powers lifted punishing economic sanctions on Tehran in return for strict limits on Iran's nuclear activities. If Iran returns to strict compliance with the nuclear deal, the United States would rejoin the agreement as a starting point for follow-on negotiations," Biden wrote. Iran faces shortages of medicine and medical equipment, including insulin, drugs for cancer treatment, influenza vaccine and test kits for the coronavirus, according to Iranian officials. Conservative gainsWithout a deal before Iran's June 2021 elections, Biden may have no willing counterpart to negotiate a deal.

Republican state lawmakers from Michigan meeting with President Donald Trump on Friday were greeted at the Washington, D.C. airport by protesters yelling "certify the vote" and holding signs that said "Shame." The White House meeting comes as Trump's lawyers call for state legislatures to name Trump electors in states won by Joe Biden. “Why, exactly, does President Trump want to see these two men in person, in his office?" But there is simply no indication of massive fraud, wrongdoing or gross error in Michigan’s election results," the state's Congress members wrote. "The continued refusal to acknowledge the election results risks corroding our democracy by literally hollowing it out."

“So far, the Biden administration has said the right things. “Awareness of us in the public sphere leads to normalization,” she added, noting that the president-elect mentioned the transgender community in his Nov. 7 victory speech.

REUTERS/Tom Brenner(Reuters) - Michigan lawmakers cannot overturn an election result in the key battleground state that helped win Joe Biden the presidency, a top legal adviser to the Democratic president-elect said on Friday. “No state legislature in our country’s history ever has done what Donald Trump is apparently agitating for the Michigan state legislature to do, which is to ignore the results of a popular vote,” said Biden campaign legal adviser Bob Bauer. “It cannot be done.”

The two lawmakers will listen to what the president, who requested the meeting, has to say, the source said. Shirkey told a Michigan news outlet earlier this week that the legislature would not appoint a second slate of electors. Those states were the pillars of Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, but Biden prevailed in all three by even larger margins than Trump did four years ago. Nationally, Biden won nearly 6 million more votes than Trump, a difference of 3.8 percentage points.

On the other side of the coin, as many work remotely, the lines between work and home life have evaporated, putting an additional strain on mental health. Green, of the Trevor Project, said many LGBTQ youth have lost their job amid the pandemic and the health insurance that came with it. This has been particularly helpful for those who had little access to affirming mental health care in their physical area. Mental health investmentThe implications of the Covid-19 pandemic on the state of mental health care won’t be known for some time, the Trevor Project's Green added, but the disparities in our current system show that urgent investment is needed before more LGBTQ people get left behind without access to care. “Investing in mental health and social services is the best strategy for proactively preventing worse mental health consequences in the future,” Green said.

Meanwhile, the number of people receiving regular unemployment benefits is declining as people facing long stretches of joblessness exhaust their state benefits and move on to pandemic programs. GRAPHIC: Emergency benefits running out -If nothing changes, more than 13 million people are at risk of seeing their benefits end, potentially leaving them with less money to pay the rent, buy groceries or cover other bills. One known as pandemic unemployment assistance made unemployment benefits available to freelancers and self-employed people who wouldn’t normally be eligible. Another program - pandemic emergency unemployment compensation - provided an additional 13 weeks of benefits for people after their state benefits ran out. “There was a recognition that we needed something stronger and broader than regular (unemployment benefits), and it actually worked,” said Andrew Stettner, a senior fellow at The Century Foundation who is an expert on unemployment benefits.

“It’s a reflection of the president-elect’s desire to project stability at a time of great instability,” said former Gov. Tom Vilsack of Iowa, who served as agriculture secretary for President Barack Obama and was an early Biden supporter. What was not typical — far from it — was the reaction of Mr. Trump, who continued to refuse to concede, and to make false claims about election fraud. “It doesn’t matter what Donald Trump says,” she said on “Axios on HBO.” “It doesn’t matter. They will.”Not everyone is so confident that Republicans will engage — or that Mr. Biden should even prioritize trying to work with them.

In those states, Trump's campaign is asking judges to bar state officials from certifying election results pending challenges to ballots there. Jenna Ellis, Trump campaign legal advisor, during a Fox Business News interview, said it will "be up to the courts to make sure to hear these cases expeditiously." Biden campaign legal advisor Bob Bauer on Tuesday told reporters that the Trump campaign's array of election lawsuits is "noise, not really law." He pointed out that since Election Day last week, judges have dismissed seven court cases lodged by the Trump campaign in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. And he said the Trump campaign cannot win the election based on recounts in any state.

Allies caution that no final decision has been made on where Trump intends to take this fight or when it might end. More likely, the aide said, "he'll say something like, 'We can't trust the results, but I'm not contesting them.'" There's an effort among those allies who know that Trump has lost to get the president to focus on next steps. Inside the White House, there's a push to get the president to also focus on his legacy and accomplishments while in office. Reacting to Biden senior counsel Bob Bauer's comments Tuesday that Trump's long-shot lawsuits are "theatrics," one White House official said, "It's not wrong for the Biden team to call it theater."

Biden on Saturday secured the more than the 270 votes in the Electoral College needed to win the presidency. “The Trump campaign’s latest filing is another attempt to throw out legal votes,” Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a Democrat, said on Twitter. Pennsylvania state Representative Dawn Keefer on Tuesday planned to call for a legislative audit of the state’s election results. Trump and Republicans have repeatedly tried to do away with the 2010 law passed under President Barack Obama, with Biden as his vice president. As Biden begins work on his transition, his team is considering legal action over a federal agency’s delay in recognizing his victory over Trump.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden gained more ground on President Donald Trump in the battleground states of Georgia and Pennsylvania on Friday, edging closer to the White House hours after Trump falsely claimed the election was being “stolen” from him. Biden, 77, would become the next president by winning Pennsylvania, or by winning two out of the trio of Georgia, Nevada and Arizona. Trump’s likeliest path appeared narrower - he needed to hang onto both Pennsylvania and Georgia and also to overtake Biden in either Nevada or Arizona. In Pennsylvania, which has 20 electoral votes, Biden cut Trump’s lead to just over 18,000 by the early hours of Friday, while his deficit in Georgia, which has 16 electoral votes, shrunk to about 650. Twitter and Facebook have flagged numerous posts from Trump since Election Day as misleading.
