WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Joe Biden on Saturday reached the two-week mark since becoming president-elect, with President Donald Trump stinging from back-to-back setbacks in his desperate, unprecedented bid to undo his election defeat. FILE PHOTO: U.S. President-elect Joe Biden speaks to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a meeting at his transition headquarters in the Queen theater in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 20, 2020. That effort, which critics call an unparalleled push by a sitting president to subvert the will of voters, has met with little success. Trump will participate virtually this weekend in the last summit of the 20 biggest world economies (G20) of his term. There is a “right way and a wrong way” for Trump to contest what he sees as election irregularities, Susan Collins, the Maine Senator, said in a statement.

In the state-by-state Electoral College that determines the winner, Biden captured 306 votes to the Republican Trump’s 232. To remain in office, Trump would need to overturn results in at least three of the most closely contested states in unprecedented fashion. While Biden participates in the virtual roundtable from his home state of Delaware on Wednesday, Trump again has no public events scheduled. But he drew the ire of Trump and his allies, who were irked over his refusal to support allegations of election meddling. A loss in the Pennsylvania case would deal a sharp blow to Trump’s fading chances of reversing the election outcome.

(Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has promised to put top priority on passing the LGBTQ rights legislation known as the Equality Act, hoping to sign what would be a landmark civil rights law within 100 days, should he win Tuesday’s election. He outlined his agenda for LGBTQ rights in an email interview with Philadelphia Gay News publisher Mark Segal, a nationally known advocate for gay rights since the 1970s. “I will make enactment of the Equality Act a top legislative priority during my first 100 days - a priority that Donald Trump opposes,” Biden said of the Republican incumbent he is challenging. The Trump administration opposed the Equality Act, saying it would “undermine parental and conscience rights,” and has also restricted queer rights in the name of religious liberty. The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives passed the Equality Act in 2019, but the legislation stalled in the Republican-controlled Senate.
