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.
