USA: Donald Trump has been warned he has little chance of securing a second four-year term in the White House despite his plans to challenge US Election results in several states.
Trump has been clinging onto hope of a victory despite ongoing counting suggesting opponent Joe Biden is on track to secure his first term in the White House.
President Trump and his lawyers have accused the Democratic party of “fraud” and have lodged demands for a recount in Wisconsin and Michigan, threatening a national lawsuit to challenge the final results of the US Election 2020.
The former Chief Counsel to the Republican Party Mark Braden while addressing the media said incumbent Trump is unlikely to snatch victory from Mr Joe Biden has already progressed far ahead as far as votes are concerned.
“It’s quite likely that within the next day, two days, three days, there will be a clear winner, there will probably be some recounts but presently there don’t appear to be any races that are close enough for the recounts to have an impact. The lawsuits are pretty much a sideshow, to be candid.” Braden said
Donald Trump has been warned by electoral officials against his attempts to challenge the US Election results will not succeed after he demanded for a recount in Wisconsin and Michigan, where Biden had a narrow lead
However, Mr Braden suggested that people should not take the threat of legal action as seriously as the election remains rooted on the ballots cast arguing Americans to remain calm.
“Very seldom does litigation affect the results, it’s very unusual for that to happen, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen here.”
Mr Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani echoed the president when he suggested there have been attempts to “cheat” the Republican Party out of the White House but claims of fraud have however been dismissed, with Joe Biden urging everyone to be patient as the final votes are counted in all states.
